A foot reflexology massage can be one of the most relaxing things you can do for yourself.
What is a reflexology massage?
According to Wikipedia, this ancient alternative healing method is traditionally done using tips of the fingers, thumbs or even foot to apply manual pressure to your skin. It is an approach based on triggering pressure points based on a Chinese foot reflexology chart (like what is shown below).
When done accordingly, the concept is that it will activate pressure points associated with different parts of your body. This will eventually boost your ‘life force’, called Qi, which helps to generate a healing process.
Health Benefits of Foot Reflexology
The general beneficial effects of reflexology involve relaxation of your nervous system through stimulating nerve endings in your feet. Also, increased blood flow to the whole body helps to mobilize healing as well as calming your system. This could result in a night of restful sleep, a revived vigor and health.
Conventionally, you need the help of a professional massage therapist to do reflexology. But with the advent of technology, it’s good to know that there are numerous machines out there that imitates the feeling and still achieve the benefits!
