Five Health Benefits of Reflexology

Reflexology is a treatment which has fast become popular as an alternative treatment for visiting the doctor. It can be described as being the application of a soft and controlled pressure to specific points on your body with most of the focus either being on your hands, feet or ears.  Through the research and work completed by Dr Barbara and Dr Kein Kunz, although the finer details behind it are still unclear, the four initial benefits of this treatment are:
  • Assisting people to relax
  • Having a positive impact on body organs
  • The Improvement of symptoms
  • Helps reduce pain levels
As time has gone on by, there have been further studies and improvements on this treatment. Some of the further benefits of having reflexology include:
#1 Increased and Improved Nerve Function
