Reflexology is a holistic approach for creating a harmonious balance in the body. It is also used to activate the body's natural healing abilities. At Reflexology by the Sea in Sea Girt, NJ, their fully trained and certified reflexologists tailor each session to the individual client to release their tension, unblock energies, and overcome any health concerns.
If you are new to reflexology and its many benefits, here is a quick breakdown of how it works to restore balance to the body:
- Targets Reflex Points In Hands, Feet, & Ears: The core of reflexology is based on the ancient Chinese principle of “reflex zones.” It is believed ten zones exist on the body and millions of points are interconnected in each one. By targeting these areas, reflexology promotes wellness.
- Stimulates Organs & Encourages Healing: When specific areas of the hands, ears, and especially the feet are massaged, they stimulate organs in other areas of the body and encourage them to begin healing themselves. For example, a foot massage targeting the tips of the toes will help relieve headaches.
- Sends Messages To The Central Nervous System: One of the main reasons people are so fond of reflexology is it is proven to reduce stress. When pressure is applied to the target zones, a calming message is sent from the peripheral nerves to the central nervous system, telling the body to adjust its tension level. As relaxation occurs, the blood supply in the body increases and causes the internal organs to work at an optimum level.
- Restores Energy Flow: When stress is ignored, it can cause a buildup of energy in the body that can negatively impact the way the organs and bodily systems operate. As a result, you’ll become more susceptible to illness. When pressure is applied to the target points on your body, this energy is encouraged to once again flow more freely, unblocking all your body's channels.
