Reflexology in Green Bay

Reflexology, a holistic modality, uses hand and finger pressure to press on the feet, outer ears, and/or hands in order to stimulate nerve endings and create positive electrical and chemical changes that contribute to homeostasis. Zone therapy is another name for reflexology. It accepts that the human body can be broken down into 10 continuous sections running from head to foot. A zone can be stimulated at one end and affect every organ, gland, or body part that is located along the same line. While reflexology can be used therapeutically, it has the potential to bring about deep healing, stress relief, and pain relief.

What is reflexology?

Each foot has over 7000 nerve endings and each ear about 25.000. Additionally, each hand records information like pressure, temperature, vibration, from 100,000 nerve receptors. When pressure is applied to a surface with sensory receptors it sends messages up the spine to the brain stem, passing through the thalamus and reaching the cerebral cortex. These messages will be processed into thoughts, perceptions and speech. Reflexology can be used to restore, preserve, or enhance your physical, emotional, and mental balance.

What are the benefits to reflexology?

Reflexology can be a gentle therapy that aids:

  • Deep relaxation and improved sleep
  • Encourage happiness and contentment
  • Increase circulation and lymph flow
  • Reduce nerve and musculoskeletal discomfort
  • Increase your sense of balance, grounding and stability
  • Stress and anxiety caused by daily challenges can be reduced
  • Give you a sense of calm and mental rejuvenation
  • Encourage emotional balance

Reflexology also has many other benefits, including its ability to stimulate nerve function and boost circulation. It can also eliminate toxins, stimulate the central nervous system, prevent migraines, cleanse the urinary tract, speed recovery from injury or surgery, lower depression, and ease pain. It can also be used to ease symptoms of certain cancers, such as those that occur after birth, and it can even soothe pregnancy-related pains.

Reflexology should be available to all.

  • Anyone who feels the need for relief from tension in their feet after standing, running or walking for long periods of time.
  • Anxious, stressed and overwhelmed individuals looking for more balance in their lives
  • People with difficult sleep patterns should not fall asleep or stay asleep
  • Patients with cancer seeking relief from anxiety and pain
  • Individuals who want a full-body massage without being undressed or “all over”
  • Seniors or people with disabilities that affect balance and movement
  • Mothers who are pregnant or postpartum and need pain relief, emotional and hormone balance

What can I expect from Reflexology?

Reflexology can be a gentle, yet powerful and cumulative manual therapy that can give you a deep sense of relaxation for days to come. Reflexology can be done on a client lying down or sitting in a recliner. You don’t need to use any cream, lotion or ointment. However, it is possible to use them if necessary. You can do it at home, in a clinic or in a professional setting. Reflexologists will be able to answer any questions regarding health and establish a treatment plan that will achieve the client’s goals. They may also explain the sensations that the client will feel throughout the session.

When should I schedule a session of reflexology?

The frequency and intensity of a reflexology session will depend on the client’s current well-being and goals. A person who uses reflexology solely for relaxation can pace the sessions up to once a month, depending on the stress level. A weekly session will be beneficial for someone with more severe and debilitating conditions, such as migraines, severe nerve pain, musculoskeletal problems, severe nerve pain, hormonal imbalances and emotional hardship.

Reflexology is a natural way to ignite the body’s own healing power. The science of Reflexology is based on the research that the soles of the feet contain a “map” with pressure points that correspond to every organ and body part. Reflexology is the systematic application of pressure technique to the feet. Through specific pressure point massage, the practitioner stimulates the pathways via the feet sending a new vigor to all parts of the body. Major research findings show Reflexology impacts disease, improves quality of sleep and influences measurable aspects of the body including blood sugar levels, blood pressure, free radicals in the blood and blood flow to the kidneys and intestines. Reflexology brings improved circulation and relaxation to ALL parts of the body resulting in better overall health. Schedule your reflexology appointment today!
