Me and Dizzy are on a mini mission to try different complementary therapies at the moment, to see which ones work best to help with our overall health and well being!
We had our first session on Monday. 🙂 I went with the full attention of just trying a massage but ended up with a reflexology!
What is reflexology:
Reflexology works on the principle that areas and points on the feet, hands and ears link to corresponding parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these points it sends out energy and helps restore balance in the body.
How does reflexology work:
Reflexology works by pressure being applied to certain points and areas on the feet, hands and ears. Mine was just on my feet!
How can reflexology help MS?
For me it was to help balance my body out and reduce anxiety. People have also reported it helping with pain, fatigue, numbness, tingling, depression, spasms, bladder symptoms, muscle strength and spasticity.
It was only my first session so I can’t say too much yet on the benefits but it was a very relaxing hour and my anxiety was pretty much gone for the rest of the day! I haven’t had any tingling or numbness in my feet since either. 🙂 In a few weeks me and Dizzy are trying the hot stone massage but we will definitely be having more reflexology in the future. 🙂
Have you tried any complimentary therapies and what benefits did you have from them? xxx
