Reflexology in Calgary
Reflexology, also called zone therapy, is a natural alternative therapy. By applying pressure to the peripheral nerve endings in the feet, hands, and ears, different internal systems, glands, and organs will register the sensation and react accordingly. Reflexology takes a holistic approach to wellness, and it’s based on the ideology that everything in the body is interconnected.
When we have cramped feet or a sore wrist, it’s easy to think that these are minor and naturally occurring issues. But it can be the sign of a greater bodily imbalance. A cramp in your foot could mean an imbalance in your thyroid, a pain in your back, or an issue with your lungs. The solution? A Calgary foot massage by one of our trained professionals.
Although it might sound impossible, reflexology works under the belief that all aspects of the body can be affected through your various zones, and by massaging them while applying pressure, your body’s balance can be restored.
How Does Reflexology Work?
Reflexologists use the application of pressure on your body’s reflexes to relieve tension, improve circulation, and promote the natural function of the related areas of the body. Unlike certain forms of massage therapy, which rely on the use of tools, creams, oils, and other equipment, reflexology uses only pressure and friction to encourage wellbeing and balance.
A reflexology treatment aims to improve the function of the body through homeopathic means. This form of health service also uses the logic that because everything is interconnected it’s possible to relieve internal pain through external means.
Reflexology can improve your body and internal systems by helping to both relax and focus your energy. Through the manipulation of your hands, ears, and feet, our Calgary reflexologists can alleviate some of the deep-rooted issues of chronic pain by bringing your whole body into balance.
Although reflexology is an alternative healing practice, it’s still used by professionals all over the world. Chiropractors, physical therapists, and registered massage therapists all rely on techniques and principles of reflexology to help their clients to the best of their abilities. Some Calgary therapists may focus only on foot reflexology.
Some of the benefits include:
- • Relaxation
- • Reduced anxiety
- • Reduced depression
- • Restoring balance
- • Alleviating pain
- • Improving sleep
A reflexology treatment in conjunction with herbology, as well as a healthy diet, can re-balance your body and your life.
