Our bodies were designed for movement. When we sit or stand for too long our bodies can become stagnant and stop functioning normally. Stress and tension tighten up the cardio vascular system and can also restrict blood flow. This can cause circulation issues. If circulation is slowed down or interrupted, we can develop a variety of aches and pains such as tired, aching legs or jumping restless legs at end of day.
Circulation issues are no joke. The body depends on an adequate blood supply to deliver oxygen and nutrients to organs and nourishes body tissue. So if you have any of these symptoms there are a variety of things that can help. HealthWalks offers both compression stockings and reflexology, two very effective treatments.
Foot reflexology is based on the premise that key pressure points on the feet correspond to body parts and organs. When pressure is applied to these areas it helps to activate them. Reflexology also helps the body to relax. This state of relaxation assists the body to eliminate toxins and allows the cardio vascular vessels to move the flow of blood naturally and easily. If your feet turn a pinkish shade after treatment this is an excellent sign! Reflexology improves the blood circulation in the feet too and if you needed improvement in circulation that is a telltale sign that the circulation is starting to work properly throughout the body.
Not only is reflexology incredibly relaxing it is also a natural holistic way to help the body do what it was intended to do naturally.
