The benefits of using Complementary Therapies

It is becoming more common for people to use complementary therapies together with conventional treatments because of the advantages alternative healing provides.

Holistic healing teaches you to regain the balance between your mind and body because the illnesses and pains that you feel are often brought about by imbalances in your system. It focuses on helping you to pinpoint the root cause, and how to heal that root cause rather than just the symptoms.

Complementary therapies also focus on maintaining overall wellness for long term optimal health. Therefore you become more empowered and proactive in taking care of your mind and body.

More conventional medical practitioners are becoming more open to the use of complementary therapies as supportive treatments. However, you must still make sure that you make informed decisions before adopting any form of treatment, whether it is conventional or alternative.

10 Fabulous Benefits of Reflexology

The benefits of reflexology include its ability to stimulate nerve function, increase energy, boost circulation, induce a deep state of relaxation, and eliminate toxins from the body. Moreover, it helps stimulate the central nervous system, prevent migraines, and treat urinary tract conditions. This type of massage speeds up recovery after an injury or surgery, reduces sleep disorders, and relieves depression and pain. It also helps ease the treatment of various types of cancer and even soothe the pain of pregnancy, even the one occurring after delivery.

The effects of stress on the immune system and how reflexology helps

Did you know that your immune system is linked to your stress level? Think back to a time when you were really sick. What was going on in your life then? Can you make a connection between your stress level and your health? Were you constantly on the go, overly worried, trying to meet a deadline, going through a major change? Were you feeling totally “stressed out”? If so, your body perceived this as a threat to its well-being and activated your sympathetic nervous system, or your “fight or flight” response.

When the sympathetic nervous system is activated, it is preparing the body to either fight or flee danger. This happens whether the danger is perceived or is an actual real threat to your physical being. In the case of a real physical threat, this is a good thing! A release of chemicals causes an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate in order to prepare the body to get away quickly. After the danger has passed, the chemicals are released, and the body returns to normal. However, if there is no real physical threat to the body, these chemicals build up causing inflammation and a suppressed immune system.

Your immune system is your body’s first line of defense against bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. Stress lowers the body’s ability to fight infection by decreasing the number of lymphocytes (the white blood cells responsible for fighting infection). The lower the lymphocyte level, the more at risk you are for getting sick. Stress also increases inflammation in the body which weakens the body’s defenses, making you more susceptible to colds, the flu, chronic disease, and even food allergies.

How Reflexology Can Help

Reflexology is a proven stress buster! By lowering stress, the body is able to calm the “fight or flight” response; the muscles relax, circulation is improved (more oxygen and nutrients are getting to the cells and organs, and toxins are removed), breathing is slowed, blood pressure decreases, heart rate decreases, and an overwhelming sense of well-being takes over as the body comes back into balance. A calm, balanced body is in better condition to defend you from the unwanted invaders that make you sick. So, add reflexology to your wellness plan and experience a less stressed, healthier YOU!

Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage

In an article for the Federation Holistic Therapists, Sally Kay, founder of award-winning technique RLD / Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage explains how the technique was developed and how she hopes it will be further integrated into other healthcare settings in the future.

Reflexology lymphatic drainage or RLD is a reflexology technique that isolates and systematically stimulates the lymphatic reflexes of the feet, using a problem-specific sequence. The treatment is adapted according to the site of secondary lymphoedema, focusing on the reflexes to encourage the excess lymph away from the damaged area towards the nearest uncompromised lymphatic drainage area.
RLD can also be used when treating clients with other conditions.

Healing Benefits of Foot Reflexology

Article published in My Weekly magazine: January 2018

Our feet are among the most hardworking parts of our body, but they don’t receive enough care and attention. When foot problems arise, they usually involve heel, ankle, hips, knee, and back pain. Did you know that applying pressure to certain reflex points on the feet can improve your psychological and physical health? Check out the healing benefits of foot massage and reflexology.

1. Lowers Blood Pressure
Massaging your feet regularly can help control hypertension or high blood pressure. It was also found that foot reflexology may help in reducing triglyceride and systolic blood pressure.

2. Improves Blood Circulation
The application of pressure, strokes and gentle techniques enhance blood circulation to vital organs. This will nourish body tissues and organs as blood delivers nutrients and oxygen. Foot reflexology also helps in repairing damaged tissues.

3. Promotes Relaxation
Foot massage is the best way to relax your mind and body. Applying pressure to certain points on the feet can also help in alleviating symptoms of depression. For example, the ball of the foot under the big toe and the spot in the center of the big toe are associated with mental health and emotional stability.

4. Relieves Pain and Tension
Reflexology can help in treating headaches, neck pain, migraine, upper and lower back pains. Massaging your feet will also treat and prevent many foot problems, such as plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.

5. Improves Cognitive Function
Oxygen is required to keep organs and cells healthy. Foot reflexology helps in delivering oxygen to the brain. Manipulating the reflex points also promotes energy flow to the brain. Keep in mind that reflexology is a complementary therapy. Always consult a doctor for any problems with mental or physical health.

6. Promotes Better Sleep
Having a foot massage before going to bed can help you achieve a good night’s sleep. Sleep deprivation slows down your brain processes and can lead to serious health problems, such as stroke, hypertension, heart attack, and diabetes.

7. Eases Symptoms Of Menopause And PMS
Many women experience irritability, bloating, mood swings, headaches, lethargy, and insomnia during premenstrual syndrome. These symptoms can be treated by massaging your feet. Also, reflexology can ease symptoms of menopause, such as depression and hot flushes.

8. Treats Restless Leg Syndrome
One of the effective ways in treating restless leg syndrome is by having a massage. This condition makes sleeping difficult due to the pulling, throbbing sensations, and the urge to move your feet. There are many ways foot reflexology can improve one’s overall health. It is most effective when administered by a trained professional.
