Reflexology for stresS

Stress is any change in the environment that requires your body to react and adjust in response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses.

Stress is a normal part of life. Many events that happen to you and around you and many things that you do yourself, put stress on your body. You can experience good or bad forms of stress from your environment, your body, and your thoughts.

Too much stress and tension can take their toll on our physical, mental and emotional well being and can manifest in physical discomfort, pain and illness and may worsen certain symptoms or diseases.

According to Webmed up to 90% of visits to the doctor are for stress-related ailments and complaints.  

The reduction of stress is regarded as being one of the major factors in maintaining good health. 

Reflexology can help with reducing the effects stress has on you by putting the body in a state of complete and deep relaxation. 

Whilst in this state the body is able to function more efficiently, improving respiration and blood supply to vital organs.  Muscular tension is released, nerve function improved, blood and lymph circulate freely and overall health and wellbeing improve.  

Reflexology encourages the body’s own natural healing responses.
