Reflexology

Did you know there are approximately 7,000 nerve endings in the human foot? Well there is and each of these nerve endings are a reflex point that corresponds to a body part.  You also have thousands of nerve endings in your hands and ears that correspond to different body parts. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps to restore homeostasis balance in the body. Reflexologist use special finger and thumb manipulations to stimulate these reflex points and they know exactly which area of the foot corresponds to which body part.

Reflexology is known to open neural pathways and flood the nervous system with neuron activity which puts the body in a more relaxed state causing a state of calm throughout the body and mind. Reflexology is also known to help with sleeping issues and insomnia by helping your body get back to its normal healthy circadian rhythms. Also, as our bodies age the nerve endings become less and less sensitive in the extremity parts of the body.

Reflexology opens up and cleans out neural pathways which can improve the functionality and flexibility of nerves and cells in various organs in the body. Neural pathways are essentially like muscles, it is extremely beneficial and crucial to your health to keep them active. Reflexology also helps improve brain function. By stimulating your nerves and opening your neural pathways, information flows much faster and more effectively to your brain which would help your brain to handle the process of the information faster and would result in a much faster cognitive and physical reactions and a boost in your memory. Reflexology also improves your blood circulation throughout the entire body allowing blood along with oxygen to get cycled and delivered through tout the body more efficiently. As more oxygen reaches the vital organ systems it helps to optimize their functions and further increases the metabolism. The deliverance of oxygen through the body also results in faster healing and regrowth of damaged cells.
