Relaxation with Reflexology at Heart and Sole Organics
Dec 31, 2016 04:56PM
There are reflexes in the hands and feet that correspond to every organ, gland and other body parts down to a cellular level. The application of compression technique which utilizes the thumbs and fingers to activate these reflex points can promote benefits like stress and tension relief, circulation improvement and the general enhancement of overall health. This technique is called reflexology.
Reflexologists do not diagnose, cure health disorders or take the place of medical intervention, but their work complements other treatments for conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS and sinusitis.
Research states that around 70% of illnesses are a direct result of prolonged stress in the body. The main attribute of reflexology is its positive effect on the nervous system by promoting a “relaxation state,” also known as the parasympathetic nervous system. This part of the involuntary nervous system slows the heart rate, increases intestinal and glandular activity, and relaxes the sphincter muscles.
Reflexologists are trained to help balance the mind and body, sustaining a natural equilibrium or “homeostasis” that promotes relaxation, health and well-being. Cindy Heard, certified Reflexologist, LMT, LE, and owner of Heart and Sole Organics, offers a one-hour reflexology session for $59. Also, throughout the month of January, experience a 100% organic facial and a one-hour reflexology session for $125 for first time clients.
