Hormonal balance is the ultimate goal for women of all ages. When our hormones are not balanced, so many issues can occur. Multiple functions in the body are linked to our hormones. From autoimmune issues, such as hashimotos, relating to our thyroid and stress, relating to our adrenals & cortisol levels to anxiety, depression, migraines... The list goes on....
Alot of times our eating habits and stress, can be the cause of imbalanced hormones. When our cortisol levels are raised, multiple issues arise, from infertility, pms, a weakened immune system, low labido to high blood pressure and more.
That's why reflexology is such a great compliment to your comprehensive holistic plan to get your body back on track with stress management & hormonal balance. It's a non invasive all natural approach, that not only helps you achieve homeostasis, but also feels amazing.
UCLA had a survey done, showing 62% of women, who were recieving weekly reflexology sessions, experienced relief from premenstrual related issues.
Reflexology is based on the premise that our body is a network of nerves. All the nerves come to the bottom of each foot. There are reflex points, where the nerve endings are, that connect to different glands, organs, and systems of the body. The points are located on the tops, sides and bottoms of our feet, ears, and hands.
When a certified and experienced reflexologist works on those points with specific compression techniques, as well as weaving in deep relaxation techniques, the body starts to relax, stress mode is turned off, any blocked nerve impulses unblock, oxygenated blood starts to flow,t he bodies' natural healing mechanism starts to kick in, where restoration and balance can start to happen, known as homeostasis. This can help the body:
-Detox the bodies unwanted toxins
-Stimulate & Balance the endocrine system
-Release dopamine & serotonin throughout body
-Improve Blood Circulation
The great thing about all of this, is because every point is worked on, everything is covered. A reflexologist will tailor each session, according to the clients needs, and the input that comes up in the client's feet. All of this is taken into account as the session is happening, all the while, increasing relaxation and rest, that the client so desperately needs.
We all get stuck in stress, and have a hard time breaking from the day to day cycle. As a mother of a special needs son, as well as a holistic practitioner, I understand this all too well. Getting bodywork such as reflexology, helps me, as i'm getting help from an outside source to get unstuck from stress and be in a place of receiving instead of constantly giving.
Give reflexology a try, to see how your body responds. The more regular you get sessions, the more your body will have the opportunity to respond to homeostasis.
