Reflexology Massage Polanco
Reflexology is a complementary therapy offered by Yoga Massage Therapy in its integrated sessions.
Reflexology is a non-intrusive alternative therapy that works with legs, hands, face and ears.
Reflexology is a treatment process that restores the body’s natural balance, and you can normally feel quite relaxed after a treatment. It will help your body repair itself for your whole wellbeing including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
There are 10 zones to the body and different areas of the feet relate to each zone. When this pressure is applied, a message is sent to your central nervous system and an overall relaxation sensation happens which helps organs function at their best.
Aside from relaxation and stress management, reflexology can have a number of other benefits too, including:
- Cancer – reflexology is regularly used on those suffering with cancer. It is known to reduce symptoms caused by chemotherapy including nausea, pain, constipation and diarrhoea. It can also help with sleep and anxiety.
- Arthritis – reflexology has also been used to treat for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, with patients reportedly feeling up to 40% less pain.
- Hypertension – a common risk of heart disease, reflexology is thought to assist with the reduction of hypertension.

- Multiple sclerosis – this is a disease of the nervous system and it’s suggested that reflexology decreases the fatigue felt with multiple sclerosis, and that it may reduce the tingling sensations experienced.
- Circulation – receiving foot reflexology is known to improve your blood circulation to vital organs. This in turn can result in quicker healing and regrowth of any damaged cells.
It can also be useful during pregnancy and even reduce the risks of post-natal depression.
