Reflexology to manage Stress and anxiety
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 our physical, mental and emotional state of health and the quality of our 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 our shoulders, as a constant buzzing sensation in our heads, a surge of panic, negative feelings, and even aches or a sickness in the pit of our stomachs. The art of dealing with stress is to recognise these warning signs in ourselves as early as possible, so that we can act promptly and make the most of techniques such as Reflexology, to bring some calm and balance into our lives.
When we learn to relax our body, we are able to cope with the challenges of life much more effectively and easily, life flows more freely, we feel more positive and we are better able to make good decisions. On a physiological level, as we relax, our stress hormones recede which allows our body systems and functions to return to a balanced mode and operate in the way that they are intended.
Furthermore, when we are relaxed, our body is better able to resist infection and disease and and heal any physical, mental or emotional imbalances.
