Reflexology and the Menopause

reflexology and the menopause

Reflexology is an ancient Egyptian practice of treating reflex points in the feet and hands, that connect to certain organs and structures of the body that need particular care. The concept of reflexology is to tune a woman into her own body’s needs, bring attention to imbalanced areas of the body and aid the release of stress to feel more relaxed.

The treatment itself includes gentle pressure on the feet, and sometimes on the hands, using appropriate techniques and movements to unblock and decongest certain areas of the body that are in need of healing and restoration.

Reflexology has incredible benefits such as;

  • Calming the central nervous system
  • Alleviating irregular sleep patterns
  • Reduce anxiety, depression, and stress levels
  • Regulating calcium production to help with bone strength
  • Stimulating the ovaries to produce oestrogen
  • Helping the uterus to maintain its health and flexibility

It is best to work with a reflexologist who understands how to regulate the hormone and glandular functions and restore balance to the reproductive system, which can really help to alleviate menopause symptoms.

The effects of reflexology are cumulative and very much depend on a woman’s overall lifestyle to embody a general sense of physical and emotional self care and relaxation, in the menopause.
