When most people get a migraine headache, they usually take some pain relievers and rest. Sometimes this makes them feel better, while other times they are left searching for relief. Medicine may not always be the answer. For thousands of years, the Chinese and Egyptians have practiced reflexology. It is an alternative treatment for a variety of health and medical conditions. By merely applying pressure to specific areas of the feet, hands, and ears specific reflex areas of the body can be treated. Each area of the body is connected to a particular pressure point in the feet, hands, and ears. While this type of treatment has not been fully accepted as medical science, many do believe that something as simple as a migraine can be cured with reflexology.
The nervous system is the most important part of your body. Chances are if something is off kilter with your nervous system, you will feel the effects throughout your entire body. Whether it is that tired, rundown feeling or just plain sick in bed, your body will tell you something is wrong.
As your nerve endings age, they become less sensitive. Applying pressure to the areas of your feet, hands, or ears that are connected with your nervous system will open and clean out neural pathways, helping to improve functionality and flexibility.
One reflexology session can stimulate more than 7,000 different nerve endings. You may end up feeling rejuvenated and revitalized like you got several good nights' sleep. You could even increase your memory power.
