Reflexology therapy is a type of massage that targets the reflex points on your body. These points are connected to every other part of the body, so massaging one area can impact the entire body and can have the influence of a full body massage. When you visit your therapist at Reflexology by the Sea in Sea Girt, NJ, there are some health benefits that you can look forward to.
Everyone responds to reflexology therapy differently, so everyone has different results, but certain advantages are common results of a session:
- Stress Relief: When you are under stress, you unconsciously tighten your muscles, and over time this creates painful knots. Those tight muscles actually create more stress, so it turns into a vicious and uncomfortable cycle in which your stress can be overwhelming. The massage loosens up and relaxes your muscles all over your body in the same way a full body massage would. You’ll notice that you feel immediate relief after your session.
- Pain Relief: The neuromatrix theory of pain states that pain is subjective and is simply the brain’s response to sensory experiences, such as a cut or burn, as well as emotion. This means that when your stress is relieved and your mood is improved, both of which occur during a session, you experience a reprieve from physical pain.
- Prevent Illness: Your reflexologist uses your pressure points to improve the flow of energy, or chi, within your body. By opening up those channels through which the energy flows, you can avoid the accumulation of negative energy and inefficiencies in your system. This boosts your immune system, preventing illness and pain.
