These days, it's not unusual to spend more time at work than at home. Plus, it's often very difficult to switch off and hard to avoid taking the stresses of the day and some of the workload home with us. When this happens, it can affect your physical, mental and emotional state of health and the quality of your personal relationships as a result. Reflexology is a powerful antidote to stress and tension and incorporating Reflexology sessions into your regular monthly routine should be seriously considered as a remedial measure and and to help prevent sustained, harmful stress.
During Reflexology sessions, I teach my clients some relaxation techniques and tips they can use daily to help counterbalance the effects of their busy working lives.
The effects of Stress creeps into many aspects of our lives in an all too constant fashion and can be acutely felt as a weight, or burden on your shoulders, as a constant buzzing sensation in your head, a surge of panic, negative feelings, and even aches or a sickness in the pit of your stomach. Prolonged stress periods can even result in muscular pain and to add to the annoyance, the stress itself can create a more powerful stress response, making it a vicious circle of experiences.
The art of dealing with stress is to recognise these warning signs in yourself as early as possible, so that you can act promptly and make the most of techniques such as Reflexology, to bring some regular calm and balance into your life.
When you learn to relax your body, you are able to cope with the challenges of life much more effectively and easily, life flows more freely, you'll feel more positive and better able to make good decisions. On a physiological level, as you relax, your stress hormones recede which allows your body systems and functions to return to a balanced mode and operate in the way that they are intended.
Furthermore, when you are relaxed, your body is better able to resist infection and disease and and heal any physical, mental or emotional imbalances.
