There Are Many Benefits of Reflexology

Aug 19, 2008
Reflexology is a very interesting type of alternative medicine. Do you have aches and pains that drain you daily? If so you may find the various techniques to be very helpful. The zones that are pinpointed with reflexology include the ears, hands, and feet. However, most of the time it takes place on the feet because there are many more areas there to work with.

If you have attempted reflexology before in the hands without results, I encourage you to try again with your feet. They have more sensations associated with them and you will find that you can feel more from this process than with the hands or the ears. Having the right amount of pressure applied to the area will affect the results you get as well.

Sometimes people find that using various essential oils in conjunction with reflexology can give them even better results than they got before. Make sure you use the right essential oils that are parallel to the results you want from the reflexology. There is plenty of information about this online and in books.

Have you ever gotten your feet rubbed and felt immediately in a better mood? Maybe it rejuvenated you and gave you more energy than you have had in a very long time. These are common results of reflexology that you can benefit from. If the techniques are done by someone that has studied the various points on the body then you can get relief for a variety of ailments.

Do you suffer from chronic headaches? Maybe you have tried a variety of treatments without any results. Reflexology techniques may offer you the freedom from them that you have been longing for. This is due to the pressure points on the body being connected to various receptors in the body and the brain.

It is very interesting to look at a reflexology chart as it shows you the areas of the feet that are attached to other parts of the body. You can find the areas that you need to get some benefits from. There are home study courses that teach you the basics of reflexology if you are interested in experimenting with it at home.

Even though many individuals will tell you that they have never found such relief before reflexology, the medical community remains quite skeptical of it. Many experts believe it is merely a concept of mind of matter - if you want the reflexology to work then you will get the desired benefits from it.

Even so, you will notice there are more and more people out there practicing reflexology. Take your time to ask about their qualifications. You want someone that has completed the required classes in order to administer it. However, since reflexology isn't readily accepted in the medical community there are very few licensing requirements for it.

As with other sources of alternative medicine, you will have to discover for yourself if reflexology can offer what you are looking for or not. If you have been dealing with various ailments for a while though why not give it a try? You just may find it is a very natural and very affordable way for you to feel your very best once again.
