10 Benefits of Reflexology

What is Reflexology anyway?

Reflexology is an ancient Chinese technique that uses pressure-point massage usually on the feet (but also on the hands and ears). It deals with the underlying principle that these pressure points or reflexes relate to every single cell of the body. Working these reflexes restores the flow of energy throughout the entire body and assists it in regaining or maintaining balance.

Reflexology was developed into a skillful, manual therapy thousands of years ago bringing many people relief and many benefits in their often fast-paced and stressful lifestyles. It is now considered a great form of preventative medicine. Since at least 75% of all our health problems can be linked to nervous stress, reflexology is a valuable tool for supporting the well-being of anyone.

10 Benefits of Reflexology:

  1. Improves circulation & nerve supply
  2. Releases physical & emotional stress
  3. Provides pain relief
  4. Helps the body eliminate toxins
  5. Decreases the number of headaches
  6. Relieves allergy symptoms
  7. Lessens fatigue & enhances energy
  8. Stimulates a healthier immune system
  9. Improves sleep & decreases insomnia
  10. Gives an overall sense of well-being

Reflexology is a very gentle, non-invasive form of healing and can bring immense relief and dramatic changes oftentimes in only a couple of sessions.

According to the Canadian Lung Association COPD is short for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. COPD is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis and refractory (non-reversible) asthma. This disease is characterized by increasing breathlessness.

While COPD is a disease commonly caused by smoking, and there is currently no cure, you can slow the progression of COPD and improve your lung function by quitting smoking.

Some COPD facts:

  • Six times as many men as women die of COPD
  • There are over 1.5 million Canadians who are diagnosed with COPD
  • As many as 1.6 million Canadians may have COPD but remain undiagnosed
  • The primary cause of COPD is long-term cigarette smoking
  • Other irritants can cause COPD , including  secondhand smoke, cigar smoke, pipe smoke, air pollution and workplace exposure to dust, smoke or fumes

The good news is that laser treatments can help you quit smoking and help you get on with the important business of improving your quality of life.

Don’t suffer any longer. Laser therapy is safe, easy, affordable and effective.

How can Calgary Laserworks & Reflexology help improve your health?

You’ve heard the expression, “If you don’t have your health you have nothing.” Take it from those who are bedridden or restricted to a wheelchair because of their health, that this statement is true.

Studies have shown that stress has a huge effect on your health. Stress and worry can lead to immune system breakdown and heart-related issues. Smoking is another big factor in the state of your health. It causes lung disease, cancer, emphysema and coronary breakdown.

Studies also show that being grateful and happy can reduce stress. It is known that 50% of our inclination to be happy is genetic, something you can’t affect very much, 10% is based on surroundings (job, money and family), and 40% is “deliberate action”. Deliberate actions are things we can control through behaviour.

We asked the question, how can Calgary Laserworks and Reflexology help with your health?

It can help you stop smoking, reduce stress, help you relax, improve your immune system and much, much more.

Consider a Reflexology appointment as a relaxing time-out that you deserve. Call 403-301-3730 to arrange your appointment today. You’ll be happy to be improving your overall wellness and empowered to live a full, active life!

Are the holidays already leaving you feeling stressed-out, tense or anxious?

Perhaps a little pre-Christmas treatment will help to ease the tension. Reflexology therapy is based on the principle that specific points and areas on the feet, hands, and ears correspond to specific organs and body systems. It is performed by applying thumb pressure to these points for healing.

Since your body is symmetrical, your left and right feet have reflex points corresponding to each side. For example, the left foot corresponds to the left side of the body and all organs and systems found there. The right foot corresponds to the right side of the body and all organs and systems found there.

By applying pressure to those specific areas, the reflexology practitioner is working to release congestion or stress in the nervous system and balance the body’s energy to promote benefits such as relaxation, improved circulation and normalized function in the related area of the body.

Consider a Reflexology appointment as a relaxing time-out or a preventative measure to support your overall wellness. Call 403-301-3730 to arrange your appointment today.

Achieve Your Optimal Level of Health

Calgary Laserworks is all about helping people empower themselves to live a healthier, happier life including reducing stress…without drugs!

Most of us have many responsibilities and worries, which if we don’t manage well, leave our emergency stress response turned “on” most of the time. The more your body’s stress system is activated, the harder it is to shut off.

Chronic stress disrupts nearly every system in your body and can lead to serious health problems. It can raise our blood pressure, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, and suppress our immune systems. Not to mention it can speed up the aging process, and really, who needs that?!

Managing stress in our lives is all about taking charge and being in control of our thoughts, our emotions, our schedule, our environment, and the way we handle our issues.

Responsibilities, worries, disappointments are inevitable, but misery is optional!

Worry and anxiety are the emotions that steal our present moments and quality of life. The mind is so powerful no matter how we choose to use it and we always have a choice about the way we respond.

Migraines are NOT NORMAL headaches

Most of us have experienced a headache or two, but for those suffering from migraine headaches, life can be unbearable for the length of time the attack lasts. In fact for many, these intense migraine headaches can be debilitating to the point of not being able to participate in every day activities because of the severity of the pain.

Migraines are not normal headaches. Migraine is considered a neurological disease. They are caused when blood vessels in the brain expand and press against nerves.

There are many contributing factors and triggers of migraine from certain foods, alcohol (especially wine) medications, and missing sleep, to bright lights, intense physical exertion, weather or barometric pressure changes, and emotional factors such as stress, anxiety and depression, to name a few.

Calgary Laserworks Can Help with Low Level Laser Therapy (Cold Laser)

LLLT is more and more in demand for treating migraine headaches. Low level laser, instead of needles, targets key energy points on the body helping patients heal more quickly and with longer lasting results, allowing them to get back to their daily lives.

Low level laser therapy is a safe and non-drug alternative for pain control! Call 403-301-3730 for relief today.
