Reflexology For Cancer Care
As a reflexologist who has been working with cancer patients, I can see the benefits of reflexology treatments first hand. Cancer takes a toll on the body and mind in several different areas before and after treatment.
Reflexology treatments work on a specific reflex to help stimulate the nerves and reflexes in the body. Poor circulation, cold feet, tingling in fingers and toes, numbness in fingers and toes, and stomach discomfort are all part of the cancer journey. Reflexology treatments can give patients an overall feeling of comfort and relaxation.
Reflexology For Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (planter fascia).
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.
Reflexology can help relieve some of the pain and discomfort of plantar fasciitis. Reflexology is beneficial as it uses pressure points/reflexes in the feet and helps to relieve heel pain.
