Reflexology & Allergies
Yesterday, I was at Hershberger Heritage Farm , setting up for my new WEDNESDAY office space, and Tru You Essentials came in to refill the farm store's elderberry supply. We got to talking about seasonal allergies, and it made me realize just how complimentary holistic therapies are. Reflexology is also a perfect addition to your all natural plan to combat the seasonal sniffles and cough, many of us experience🌻
. "Reflexology calms the nervous system and transports you to a state of deep rest and relaxation by stimulating reflex points on your feet, hands, face and ears. . There are thousands of nerves in these areas — 15,000 in your feet alone! This is why a reflexology session is so very soothing and nurturing, leaving you feeling clear and energized. .
While releasing tension and stress, reflexology also affects your organs, glands and pretty much every other part of your body, because each part has its related pressure point/area on the feet, hands, face and "ears. . Whilst working on EVERY REFLEX POINT, the following reflex points are focused on with extra attention for sinus issues and allergies:
"-The sinuses (balls of the toes) open up clogged sinus cavities. . -The pituitary or "master gland" (center of big toe) stimulates and balances hormone secretions of all other glands.
. -The thymus gland (upper inner edge of ball of foot) strengthens your immune system. . -Your chest, lungs and bronchials (center of ball of foot) release congestion. . -The solar plexus/diaphragm (under ball of foot at center) reduces stress and relaxes breathing. . -Your adrenal glands (just above center of foot near inner edge) produce cortisone/cortisol to reduce inflammation. Adrenalin boosts your energy level, often depleted by allergy symptoms. . -The ileocecal valve (lower outer edge of foot) regulates mucus production." . If you'd like a reflexology session, live in and around the Harleysville area, go to www.peacerootsreflexology.com, to schedule your session!
