Health Benefits of Reflexology

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.

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. The Chinese believe that reflexology stimulates the body into healing itself. By working these reflexes the flow of energy throughout the entire body is restored and assisted in regaining or maintaining balance.

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.

How can reflexology benefit you?

Did you know that reflexology originated just about the same time as acupuncture?

No one in the West had heard of reflexology until an American ear, nose and throat specialist named Dr. William Fitzgerald, introduced it at the beginning of this century. He took the first steps toward dividing the body into ten reflex zones and 3000 years after its conception reflexology came to America.

In 1930, Eunice Ingham, a masseur, refined the “zone therapy” developed by Fitzgerald, to what is known today as reflexology. She was instrumental in charting the feet in detail to determine which part of the sole corresponded to which part of the body.

Reflexology can bring immense relief in the following areas:

  • Pain relief
  • Relaxation
  • Assistance in getting rid of the body’s toxins
  • Decrease in the number of headaches
  • Nerve stimulation
  • Relief of allergy symptoms
  • Lessened fatigue, feeling energized
  • Healthier immune system
  • Insomnia
  • Sense of well-being

The Reflexology Option

The origins of reflexology can be traced back may thousands of years. Many civilizations and cultures have used this ancient form of healing throughout history. The main principle of reflexology that has evolved with time and research is that the feet mirror the body.

In the early 30”s, Dr Riley had a physiotherapist in his office called Eunice Ingham. Dr. J. Riley taught the reflex technique to his wife Elizabeth and Eunice Ingham. Eunice Ingham became engrossed in zone therapy. With the aid of visiting Chinese doctors, who gave her documentation illustrating how the Chinese perceive the feet to mirror the body, she started equating areas on the feet with the anatomy of the body and drew up detailed foot charts.

Eunice Ingham’s work became more and more reflex based but, confusingly, she continued to use the term “zone therapy” for some time. She found that not only did “zone therapy” relieve pain but it also promoted healing. Over the course of her work she changed the term from “zone therapy” to “compression massage” and finally settled with “reflexology“.

Benefits of reflexology include:

Stress Reduction

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.

Improved Circulation

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.

Increased Energy

Reflexology revitalizes energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up the energy pathways.

  • Pain relief
  • Relaxation
  • Assistance in getting rid of the body’s toxins
  • Decrease in the number of headaches
  • Nerve stimulation
  • Relief of allergy symptoms
  • Lessened fatigue, feeling energized
  • Healthier immune system
  • Insomnia
  • Sense of well-being

Relief is only an appointment away. Call 403-301-3730 to arrange a reflexology appointment.
