The added strain on everyone’s immune system today should warn us to find time to unwind and relax. Only when the body is well balanced is a person in good shape to ward off illness. Reflexology is a gentle way of giving yourself time out and while getting the extra benefit of stimulating the immune system.
Preventive care such as reflexology, good nutrition and fluid intake, seem to bolster immune defences, so you catch fewer colds and are able to function during stressful times.
The immune system is the body’s protection against germs, viruses and other invaders. The thymus gland, spleen, tonsils, adenoids and lymph nodes, along with a variety of white blood cells, all protect the body. The lymphatic system is a network of capillaries, vessels, trunks and ducts and plays a crucial role in the body’s immune response.
Do you suffer with; Fatigue, Allergies, Sinus Congestion, Headaches, Stress, Colds, Coughs, Feeling Grumpy or Overwhelmed?
Preventive care such as reflexology, good nutrition and fluid intake, seem to bolster immune resistance, so you catch fewer colds and can function during stressful times. If you have been, or are sick, then reflexology can boost your immune system and aid in your recovery, reducing the amount of sick days you experience.
The science bit …. a reflexology treatment works on the entire foot while concentrating on lymph node reflexes. The treatment helps maintain blood flow and fluid balance with constant beneficial effects for the free flow of lymph, which helps detoxify the body. Treatments help deepen the breathing making the respiratory system work more effectively therefore improving the flow of lymph. Invigorating the action of the muscles benefits the circulatory system as well as the immune / lymphatic system, therefore the stimulating effect of reflexology assists in breaking down deposits in the feet, and decongests energy pathways allowing the immune / lymphatic system to work optimally (as it does for all other systems too).
Having regular reflexology as maintenance, helps to keep your body strong and healthy.
