It is important for blood to flow freely through the body, carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells that make up the tissues of the body and removing waste products and other toxins. It is vital that the blood vessels are functioning properly. Stress and tension tighten up these vessels and restrict blood flow, so that circulation becomes sluggish. By reducing stress and tension, reflexology allows miles of cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.
Reflexology balances the whole system:
The technical term homeostatis means a dynamic state of balance- all the parts of the body functioning according properly together in balance, producing a healthy body. For the body to be healthy, everything must work together. Excessive stress disrupts this balance and can knock some part of our system out of balance.
In addition to the three major benefits (above), Reflexology also helps in the following ways:
Human touch interaction
Improving the immune system
Encouraging the body to heal current disorders
Clearing the body of toxins and waste products
