Lately new clients have been coming to the Healing Place to seek alternative medicine to relieve the pain associated with Fibromyalia. They want to give Reflexology a try. Reflexology is a non-invasive and painless therapy. Most of the time clients end up falling asleep on the table while the body has entered the healing process.
After three or four weekly sessions, most clients noticed that they were experiencing less pain, their joints hurt less or did not hurt at all and they are also able to think clearer. Stomach functions improved drastically, and they felt better overall.
How does Reflexology help? Reflexology is a non invasive and gentle alternative medicine. By applying firm pressure to reflex points located on the feet, hands and ears, energy imbalances messages are sent to the brain. The brain recognizes these messages and then sends healing signals to that part of the body asking it to cooperate and start the healing process. Many people have found tremendous relief from chronic pain and are grateful. The best part about it is that it only takes minutes to apply.
“Helen's reflexology has helped my fibro flare-ups by reducing pain, increasing my energy level and giving me a light at the end of a rainbow. This therapy has been the most beneficial to my Fibromyalgia symptoms. I've tried chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture. As a teacher of 2 1/2 to 3 year old children, I need to be as active as them. With Helen's reflexology I've been able to stay active with my job. I highly recommend her to anyone with Fibromyalgia.” Susan T. of Walpole. A long time Healing Place’s client
As a reflexologist, I have found common pain pattern that appears with these clients. When they have a flareup the 10 most common symptoms are:
- Body Pain
- Sleep difficulties
- Brain fog
- Morning stiffness
- Muscle knots, cramping, weakness
- Digestive disorders
- Balance problems
- Itchy/burning skin
