Reflexology for your mind … part two of my tagline . Reflexology is not only helpful in maintaining physical health, it is also quite good at relaxing your overstimulated and overactive brain, and the flight, flight or freeze reaction (aka the sympathetic nervous system response within the body.)
Reflexology helps to soothe your nervous system and encourages balance in your body. For most individuals this means focusing more on the parasympathetic nervous system, the rest and digest side of things.
Cranio-Sacral Reflexology in particular, may involve specific work in the brain reflex areas found in your feet! Yes, you can access different areas within the brain in order to assist with memories, emotions, hormones and more!
For many clients there are moments when memories come forward. Those memories usually have emotions attached to them. Many clients are surprised when these emotions arise during a session, not realizing how our emotions and memories are imbedded in the tissues of our body.
