Reflexology and Inflammation and Chronic Conditions such as Fibromyalgia
Inflammatory responses play a central role in the development and persistence of many diseases and can lead to debilitating chronic pain. In many cases, inflammation is your body's response to stress. Therefore, reducing "fight-or-flight" responses in the nervous system and lowering biological markers for stress can also reduce inflammation. Typically, doctors prescribe medications to combat inflammation. However, there's growing evidence that another way to combat inflammation is by engaging the vagus nerve and improving “vagal tone.” This can be achieved through daily habits such as yoga and meditation. In Reflexology we aimed to work an area known as the Vagus Nerve, which encourages a higher vagal tone index which is thought to be linked to physical and psychological well-being. A low vagal tone index is associated with inflammation, depression, negative moods, loneliness, heart attacks, and stroke.
Chronic pain condititions such as Fibromyalgia, are reported to offer good results with a regular Reflexology sessions. Studies implied that the inclusion of reflexology in the routine care of patients with Fibromyalgia was supportive of reducing pain intensity in these patients.
There are many alternative holistic treatments that can help with the symptoms of fibromyalgia, but finding a treatment that works can take time. What works for one person may not work for another, so flexibility, patience and compassion are essential.
Reflexology has a proven history of improving circulation. With improved circulation, the overall pain that many fibromyalgia sufferers may decrease in intensity. Having regular reflexology treatments as part of your fibromyalgia treatment care plan may help to lower pain, improve circulation, detox, release tension, and increase energy.
Release muscle tension
Energy flow and balance
Maybe helpful for back pain, anxiety and stress, by encouraging your own healing.
Reflexology and IBS
Reflexologists believe that strong emotions, anxiety and stress can impair the normal regulation of the autonomic nervous system, causing an adverse effect on those bowel functions normally carried out automatically. Reflexology aims to relax retained tension in the body’s tissues and organs, and balance metabolism in those key organs involved in digestion, namely the stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, small intestine and colon.
Reflexology is said to provide natural relief from many everyday health conditions through its ability to relax mental and physical tension in the body, improve general circulation and nerve supply, boost the immune system, encourage the elimination of the body’s harmful wastes and toxins, and restore a sense of harmony to the body.
Symptoms of IBS include diarrhoea and / or constipation, stomach cramps and bloating. The symptoms can be severe and very painful. Some people only experience symptoms after eating certain foods, and find that simply cutting out those foods is enough to stop the symptoms.
Reflexology is so intensely relaxing, that it often only takes a couple of treatments to see the symptoms improve. If an individual has a very stressful lifestyle then it can be beneficial to continue having monthly treatments, to prevent symptoms developing again.
