The Springfield Newspaper, February, 2010
Good circulation and consciously being aware of heart health are major steps for overall fitness and wellbeing. Reflexology offers many benefits on cardiac and circulatory wellness.
Applying specific pressure points on the hands and feet is essential for maintaining heart health. A reflexology session doesnít just address the heart area. It also assists the heart by working on other key organ pressure points of the body, such as, kidney, liver, circulation and digestion.
What is Heart Health?
When we speak of heart health we include the cardiovascular system which is made up of the heart, arteries, veins, arterioles, venules and capillaries. The system carries nutrients and oxygen to the muscles and organs of the body through the blood.
Reflexology and Hypertension
Hypertension or high blood pressure can be a health threat for the heart. Hypertension is a major risk factor for stroke, heart attack, heart and kidney failure according to the American Heart Association
A reflexologist can emphasize the circulatory systemís reflexes for a client with high blood pressure. This includes:
Heart Reflex connected to the organ that pumps the blood throughout the body.
Kidney Reflexes. Kidneys filter the blood and are part of the vital organs of the body.
Diaphragm and chest reflexes encourage relaxation to promote deeper breathing.
Spinal Reflexes on the inner edges of the feet promotes communication through the nervous system.
