Health Benefits of Reflexology

Reflexology is one of the most popular forms of analgesic or pain-relieving treatments. Its practice has been traced back to the early histories of China and Egypt – and for good reason. For those who are unfamiliar, reflexology involves applying pressure to the hands, fingers, feet and other body parts to induce a physical sensation of relaxation, stimulate energy and improve circulation as well as other tangible benefits to the body.

Below are just some of the health benefits of reflexology.

Alleviate stress and anxiety

Those who have been through a reflexology session will know just how much it can induce relaxation in the body. This relaxed physical state facilitates improvement in your mental state as well, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety.

Reduce headaches

As a pain-relieving treatment, reflexology can relieve the severity of migraines and headaches by reducing the tension in the muscles that induce those headaches.

Improve circulation

A proven benefit of the reflexology is its ability to improve the flow of blood in our body. This can have cascading effects, as improved circulation means more blood and oxygen is being distributed throughout your body.


Boosted energy levels

The improvement in circulation from reflexology benefits all of your internal organs, muscles and nervous system, resulting in increased energy levels and metabolism. The next time you’re feeling lethargic, give reflexology a try!

With so many tangible benefits and research backing reflexology, it’s no surprise this treatment is a popular option to alleviate pain and induce relaxation.
