What Is Reflexology and How Does It Work? Benefits, Tools, & More
When you think about your daily routine, do you prioritize your health internally as much as your outside appearance? What if we took an extra second or moment to understand what our bodies might be trying to tell us. As someone who follows holistic practices, when it comes to healing the mind and body, I have found that discovering and trying out reflexology has allowed me to gain a little more insight and relief on what is going on inside.
Learning more about taking care of myself in every angle and reducing the amount of toxic energy, chemicals, and invasive products and treatments have allowed me to seek out natural remedies and services that are best suited for me.
Reflexology is a practice that is used as a way to correspond our body parts to tension points that are found in our hands, feet, and the ears.
How to incorporate reflexology into your lifestyle:
- Utilize the gua sha for 1-2 min. in the morning or before bed. This will help our organs communicate with different regions in the face to activate different functions.
- Create main focus areas. When I concentrate the strokes under my eyes, it stimulates my kidneys and so forth.
- Utilize “stroke maps” to see where you should glide your reflexology tools and the benefits of the area.
- Find pressure points. Pressure points stimulate the nerves to assist with reducing pain, inflammation and blockage.
