Reflexology, not to be confused with massage, involves applying pressure to various points on the feet, hands, and ears. According to ancient Chinese medicine, these different points are connected to different organs and body systems, and applying pressure to these areas is said to offer various health benefits as well as a balanced and free-flowing qi.
Some of the health benefits of foot reflexology include improvement in energy levels, circulation, liver function, circulation, and even migraines. But, in today’s blog, the reflexologists at Emerge Medical & Well Spa are here to talk about how reflexology can help significantly reduce stress and improve mood.
Reflexology works to reduce stress levels by improving lymphatic drainage and venous circulation, stimulating nerve pathways, and relaxing the muscles. The accompanying relaxation will also allow your body to deal with the stresses associated with daily life and illness.

Releases Good Hormones
Along with the therapeutic release of stress and tension throughout the body’s systems, reflexology increases nerve activity and releases toxins from the tissues. This encourages the release of endorphins, the feel-good hormones have proven to relieve stress.
Reflexology also works to improve the body’s assimilation of nutrients, eliminates waste, and stimulates the immune system. In turn, this will help balance and maintain the body, promote self-healing and lead to good health.
