Is Foot Reflexology the Solution to Migraines?

Foot reflexology for migraines

Although the practice has only recently gained popularity in the United States, foot reflexology dates back thousands of years. The treatment may provide relief for a variety of conditions, including chronic muscle pain, insomnia, menstrual cramps, and more. At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, many patients who live with chronic migraines wonder if reflexology can cure their pain. We provide an answer in today’s blog.

How Foot Reflexology Works

Foot reflexology is a holistic practice, which means it works to keep the body in balance. A massage therapist targets specific acupressure points on the foot to stimulate the neurological function and improve the flow of circulation during treatment. Each point connects to a different area of the body, so treatments are usually tailored to relieve any pain the patient experiences. For example, if you’re experiencing pain in your left temporal lobe, the massage therapist will focus treatment on your large left toe. Although reflexology uses acupressure points, it doesn’t involve needles making it a great alternative to acupuncture for some patients.

Migraine Relief

If you experience migraines, foot reflexology may be able to relieve your pain and prevent future headaches. A massage therapist typically applies pressure to the inside of your big toe and second toe providing relief to your temporal lobes if you have a headache. They may also target your little toes as well as the top of the large toes near the nail bed, which can provide pain relief for the face and sinuses.

Will Reflexology Cure Migraines?

Foot reflexology can work wonders for those who suffer from migraines. Typically, you’ll experience pain relief during the session and the effects may continue for up to five days. It’s important to realize that reflexology is not necessarily a cure-all. As a holistic treatment, reflexology should be combined with other holistic therapies, such as following a healthy diet, utilizing herbal medicine, and practicing yoga. By living a healthy lifestyle, you are more likely to experience the effects of your treatment.

You should also keep in mind that reflexology is not necessarily meant to replace forms of modern medical treatment. Always consult with your physician if you have chronic migraines as they may indicate a more serious problem. Talk to your physician if you’re considering stopping your migraine medication.
