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.
Studies also show that being grateful and happy can reduce stress and anxiety. For example, it is known that 50% of our inclination to be happy is genetic (something you can’t affect very much), 10% is based on your surroundings/life circumstances (family, career, finances), and 40% is “deliberate action”. Deliberate actions are things we can control through our behaviour.
When we are stressed our body’s defences break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology can assist in reducing stress by generating deep tranquil relaxation, helping the body balance itself and allowing healing energy to flow.
Blood needs to flow freely throughout the body carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells and removing the waste products of metabolism and other toxins. By reducing stress and tension, reflexology allows the cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.
Improved Immune System
Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system thus reducing risk of infection. It cleanses the body of toxins and impurities and also stimulates the production of endorphins, leading to an improved immune system and sense of well-being.
Reflexology revitalizes energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up the energy pathways.
By taking deliberate action and choosing reflexology you can begin improving your health today! Give us a call today at 403-301-3730 to discover how laser treatments can help.
