Stress is the biggest factor in the health of the mind, body, and spirit. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 90% of all illness and disease is stress-related. This type of chronic anxiety and worry declines our mental and physical health.
Reflexology can help! Reflexology is a therapy based on the belief that there are points on the feet, hands, and ears that stimulate the function of different parts of the body, including the glands and the organs.
This type of therapy relieves stress and restores balance to the body by manual manipulation of the feet and hands, and many practitioners believe that applying pressure to these reflex points can treat a wide variety of health complaints. By applying pressure to problem areas, reflexologists increase the flow of endorphins in your body which relieves stress and pain.
Reflexology is nothing new! The history books date this practice back to before 2,330 B.C. in ancient Egypt and China.
New Age Spa Institute’s Clinical Massage Therapy program offers extensive reflexology in theory, demonstration, and hands-on practice. Accompanied by a knowledge of anatomy and physiology, with a focus on clinical massage, reflexology rounds out the curriculum with its alternative approach to unblocking channels of energy.
