China, being one of the oldest civilizations in the world, is known for its traditional ways of healing. Natural remedies, herbal remedies, acupressure and various alternative treatments that we now value can be traced back to China. China reflexology massage therapy is availed of along with Swedish massage therapy, deep tissue massage therapy, sports massage therapy and pregnancy massage therapy. In a Reflexology Massage, the massage therapist focuses their efforts on your hands and feet. By helping relieve stress and improve blood flow in these focused areas, the wellness of your entire body is improved. China reflexology massage is an ancient healing technique, whose origins stem from Asia. It is a massage that is largely based on the belief that there are “pressure points” located in the hands and feet that are connected to the rest of the body and even to major organs and internal organs. The hands and feet out in ten vertical zones, these zones were based on the reflexes of the hands and feet, as noted by the body’s reaction when pressure was applied to that point.
A China reflexology massage practitioner enumerates the condition that can be cured by the practice as follows: blood circulation: hemorroids, varicous veins, high blood pressure digestive system: colitis, diarrhea, stomach bloating, stomach upsets, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers nervous system: memory loss, depression, sleep disorder, lack of concentration or energy articulations: arthritis, muscular aches and pains, sciatica general: asthma, migraine, weight gain, skin problems, acceleration of ageing process
Improved circulation in the limbs, strengthening immune system, reduced stiffness and anxiety, improved flexibility and sleep are only some of the marked benefits of the Chinese foot massage. Who would refuse such a massage?
