Reflexology and massage therapy are fast gaining reputation


Reflexology And Massage Therapy Are Fast Gaining Reputation

Reflexology is a type of massage therapy that is fast gaining popularity. It is classified as an

alternative medicine practice.

Theory behind reflexology

Reflexology is based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands and head that are

linked to every part of the body. These parts are then treated with specific thumb, finger and hand

techniques. Reflexology does not use any oil or lotion and is based on a zonal system and reflex

areas. Reflexologists believe that this practice works to bring physical changes in the body.

The reflexology chart

Foot reflexology charts often point out various areas on the feet that are believed to correspond

with the internal organs on particular zones of the body. Reflexology works on the principle that

applying pressure externally on these areas would clear out the internal organs and subsequently

the defects one might face in those organs.

In short, reflexologists divide the body into ten equal vertical zones (with five on each side – right

and left). The theme of reflexology is the application of physical pressure but reflexologists also

believe that applying the pressure can clear any blocked energy field in the body, thereby giving way

for freer energy flow in the body, making sure the body is in good health.

The pressure placed in the foot triggers changes and relieves stress and pain. Many reflexology

clinics in Los Angeles and San Diego have seen an increasingly good reception to reflexology as an

alternate medicinal therapy to relieve the ever growing stress levels.

Reflexology is also believed to send signals that balance the nervous system and release endorphins

that will reduce stress and pain.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the process where massages are done to reduce stress levels. Massages are

often believed to promote relaxation and well being. When normal medicinal methods fail, massage

therapy is good for treating certain low level sports injuries, repetitive muscle cramps or any other

muscularly painful conditions.

Best professional massagesare done with the client lying on a specially designed massage table or a

massage chair. The therapist then applies gentle pressure to various parts of the body, gently easing

and relaxing the tight or tensed nerves.

Massage therapy is extremely popular amongst sports people (athletes) because of the extremely

strenuous nature of the activities they do during their training and practice sessions. It is also

popular among older people with a weakened immune system who are averse to increased

medicinal dosage.

Massages are also looked upon in recent times as a form of alternative medicine, with therapeutic

massage gaining huge popularity to treat many minor illnesses. Therapeutic massage centers in San

Diego and Orange County has followed many age old techniques that have stood the test of time

from across cultures.

The results of these kinds of alternative forms of therapy have been verified against modern therapy

methods and some times, have resulted in better cures. Alternative medicine is not replacing but

aiding modern medicine and with the right usage of both the forms, many long suffering patients

tend to get their diseases cured.
