Reflexology & You!
Updated: Dec 8, 2022
Life can be stressful.
But, there are many benefits of Reflexology that you should know about. Sometimes you need Reflexology more than a serious back and shoulder massage!
There are countless benefits of the application of pressure to certain reflex points on your feet (and hands and head!) Here are some of the benefits of Reflexology:

As one ages without purposefully working out and staying in a perpetual flow of ongoing movement, joints can tighten, muscles can become weaker, and range of motion can get diminished.
Add to that a sedentary lifestyle, and muscle stimulation becomes reduced ~ further limiting natural stretching ability.
Relaxed muscles improve flexibility and range of motion by allowing ligaments to stretch. Dancers and athletes use reflexology to relax their muscles, thereby promoting flexibility and a wider range of motion.
Reflexology targets specific nerves which, in turn, helps unlock channels in the body. This not only enhances athletic performance but also helps prevent injuries while performing everyday activities.
Reflexology reduces stress.

Stress reduction is achieved by specifically massaging key nerves in the feet with firm, yet painless repetitive motions, to relax the muscles.
