Reflexology is a type of foot massage that originated in China, where practitioners believed that massaging the feet released energy throughout the body. Science has since proven this special massage has numerous health benefits regardless of age or gender.
The massage therapists at Paradise Men's Spa in New York City can treat clients to a 30-minute reflexology massage guaranteed to leave them feeling revitalized. Not sure if reflexology is right for you?
Here are four reasons why focusing on your feet can improve your overall health:
- It Reduces Stress: Obviously, massages are one of the best ways to reduce the effects of stress on your body. When an experienced masseuse uses their hands to knead your feet, it releases tension in other parts of the body, too.
- It Relieves Pain: According to Livestrong.com, reflexologists believe sickness and disease are caused by blockages in a person’s energy channels. With more than 7,000 nerve endings in the feet, it’s a great area to stimulate a person’s nervous system in order to promote health and healing.
- It Eliminates Toxins: As with most spa treatments, stimulating muscle tissue releases toxins. Don’t be surprised if you feel the need to relieve yourself immediately after your visit.
- It Improves Circulation: Since feet are connected to the whole body through your nervous system, massaging them improves blood circulation, which also promotes good health.
