Our Spa Manager at Constance Le Prince Maurice, Sophie Demaret, takes a look at the health benefits of reflexology.
Reflexology is an ancient holistic therapy that began in China and Egypt.
During a reflexology treatment, the reflexologist will use their thumbs and fingers to massage reflex areas on the feet that are associated with glands, organs and other specific areas of the body.
Releasing toxins and improving health
When the human body is in perfect equilibrium, we call this balanced state ‘homeostasis’.
Reflexology is the art of fine-tuning every part of the body to achieve a state of equilibrium or homeostasis in the body, and so maintain perfect health.
During or after a reflexology session, toxins may be eliminated in various ways such as through sweating, diarrohea, a runny nose or coughing.
What conditions can reflexology help with?
Reflexology has been shown to be beneficial to people experiencing a number of conditions including:
- stress, anxiety and insomnia
- digestive disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- lower back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain
- high blood pressure
- PMS, hormone imbalance and infertility
At Constance Hotels Experience, we offer reflexology treatments at our Spa de Constance.
