Protection is always better than cure and the best way to keep flu, cold and infections away is by strengthening the body’s natural defense mechanism – the immune system.
The immune system is made up of a network of cells, tissues and organs – the thymus, spleen, bone marrow and lymphatic system – that work together to protect the body.
During a Reflexology treatment all of these organs and systems are stimulated by pressure to connected points on the feet, to help boost circulation and help them work optimally, thereby increasing their ability to protect the body better.
Another important factor to consider when talking about the immune system is stress, as it plays a part in our immune function. Stress is related to each and every aspect of our modern day lifestyle.
Reflexology, reduces stress and tension throughout the body’s systems to improve blood and lymph circulation and release toxins from the body’s tissues. It is believed to encourage the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good hormones, well documented in their ability to relieve stress.
