Reflexology – the ultimate foot massage
The Mayo Clinic is among the many sources reporting on the benefits of reflexology, which involves the application of pressure to areas on the feet. “Reflexology is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress,” they say.
“Reflexologists use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas,” they explain. “The theory behind reflexology is that these areas correspond to organs and systems of the body. Proponents believe that pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person’s health.”
The experts at the Mayo Clinic also point out that studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that, “reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care of people with cancer.”
You can experience the benefits and the incredible pleasure of reflexology at Spa Space, the premier spa in Chicago for spa services for men and women, including couples massage.
Inspired by a 4,000-year-old therapy based on the concept that the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet contain reflex points that connect to all organs of the body. Reflexology is becoming one of the favorite Chicago massages offered at Spa Space. Specific pressure techniques detect imbalances and dissipate energetic blocks to alleviate stress and promote the body’s ability to heal itself.
