Alternative and Integral Therapies for Insomnia
Reflexologists believe that every part of the body is reflected in reflex areas on the hands and feet According to them, the body is divided into ten vertical zones or channels of energy, which run from the head down through the body and surface at the reflex areas on the hands and feet. By applying finger and thumb pressure to a specific point on the foot, the therapist can stimulate or rebalance the energy in the related zone and improve the health of the associated body parts. Treatments are aimed at stimulating the body's own healing potential.
Reflexology For Restful Sleep
Foot massage can be extremely soothing. Start the treatment by gently massaging the feet. Work on the reflex areas keeping your movements slow and rhythmic. Work over an area several times and when pressing into a point, hold for about 30 seconds. Special emphasis should be given to specific reflex points for insomnia. These include the reflexes for the brain, solar plexus, spine, respiratory, and circulatory systems.
Not recommended for pregnant women, diabetics, epileptics, or anyone receiving medical treatment.
