Reflexology at Exhale Spa Promotes Relaxation and Reduces Pain

Exhale Spa offers reflexology services delivered by therapists trained in this technique. Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands and ears. The term “reflex” refers to the fact that these points are responsive to stimulus.

Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that applying pressure to these points has a beneficial effect on the organs and overall health. Reflexologists also believe that nerve pathways exist throughout the body. When any of these pathways is blocked, the body experiences discomfort or illness. Reflexology revives energy flow and brings the body back into homeostasis – a state of balance.

Reflexology is said to promote relaxation and wellness of mind and body, and when used in conjunction with traditional medical treatment, can help alleviate pain and other symptoms.

Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS and sinusitis.
