Happy feet: Fußreflexzonenmassage für Körper, Geist und Seele

Happy feet: foot reflexology massage for body, mind and soul

Mmmhhh, a foot massage is generally a nice thing. But did you also know that targeted treatment of specific areas of the feet can be used to treat specific ailments throughout the body? Migraines, back problems, menstrual cramps or sleep disorders – all of these conditions can be treated with the help of selective stimulation of the feet. We are talking about the so-called foot reflexology massage.

In this article you will find out how it works and how it works. Enjoy!

The effect of reflex zones

After reflexology therapy, all areas of the body are connected. According to this theory, the entire human body, i.e. the sum of all organs, muscles and bones, is reflected in the foot. The foot, or more precisely the sole of the foot, is divided up like a map. The brain, for example, can be influenced by massaging the big toe. In this way, a wide range of physical and mental complaints can be treated by specifically treating certain parts of the foot. The massage can relieve pain, promote blood circulation and stimulate self-healing powers. Massage therapists, physiotherapists and alternative practitioners in particular use reflexology massage.

What happens during a foot reflexology massage

A foot reflexology massage is usually used as an accompanying therapy and is primarily used for chronic illnesses. Headaches and migraines, digestive problems, menstrual cramps, sleep disorders or stress are just a few examples of possible areas where the technology can achieve good results. It is usually carried out lying or sitting and takes around twenty to forty-five minutes. After the therapist has examined the feet for injuries or swelling, the zones of the respective pain pattern are treated. A distinction is made between calming and stimulating grips. Calming grips are primarily used to treat pain. This involves pressing a point until the pain subsides. With the toning grips, the corresponding points are stimulated using circular movements and greater pressure.
