Reduce stress and its effects with Complimentary Medicine
We are all affected by stress, regardless of our intention. The ability to handle stress differs from person to person. If not handled correctly, stress may fix in the body and induce physical symptoms; indeed, stress is one of the major causes of death in the modern world.
Stress is so harmful to your health. Work is stressful, sticking to your finances may be extremely stressful, traffic jams are stressful, and bringing up a family may be very stressful. Stress causes loads of problems – headaches, muscle aches, insomnia, irritability, and many more.
Our immune defences are down when we feel stressed. Reflexology to the feet can allow healing energy to flow and stimulate the body’s natural homeostasis. Many illnesses are stress related – the severity and the effects of stress vary with each individual, but the common effects of stress include ulcers, indigestion, constipation, hypertension, headaches or migraines, panic attacks and depression, palpitations, and even heart attack and coronary thrombosis. Stress causes muscular tension and affects the nervous system; blood vessels constrict so the blood does not freely carry oxygen and nutrients. Reflexology treatment induces muscular relaxation, reduces physical tension and helps the nervous system to function normally, thus reducing stress. Other effects include helping the lymphatic system work more effectively, so reducing toxins and impurities. Breathing becomes deeper and more relaxed. Hormone levels become more balanced. The client feels calm, relaxed, and re-energized.
