Hand Reflexology

hand reflexology chartOur hands are perhaps the most active parts of the human body these days. Most of our daily activities such as typing, using a cell phone, or driving a car, involve the use of the hands. It is no wonder that most people’s hands are in such agony. An increase in sedentary lifestyles and lack of exercise also means that people are becoming more and more unfit.

Hand reflexology is a method of stimulating various points in the hand to create positive health effects in other parts of the body. Hand reflexology can help get rid of aches and pains in your hands, and promotes the proper functioning of all the organs, thus paving the way to better health. During a typical session, the hand, fingers and wrist are “massaged” and gently manipulated.

Hand reflexology delivers four main benefits: relaxation and stress relief, improved circulation, normalization of the metabolism and can be a complementary treatment to medical care. According to the Ontario College of Reflexology, reflexology helps to break up deposits under the skin, improving the flow of energy in the body.Becky Cobb doing hand reflexology (Balance and Harmony, Peoria IL)

Reflexology may be beneficial if you suffer from poor circulation, which may cause pain or tingling in the hands and feet and impair your body’s ability to fight infection. Improved circulation may also help regulate the metabolism, which is related to processes such as digestion, elimination, body temperature and the function of the brain and nerves.
