When you are faced with a stressful situation whether it is an immediate problem like an emergency or a long build up of stress like trouble at work or tiredness your body responds by secreting the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol into the bloodstream.
These hormones give us the fight or flight response that is designed to allow our bodies to react to dangerous situations. When the stress hormones are released our muscles tense, ready to spring into action and the heart and lungs work harder to pump oxygen to the arms and legs.
Blood pressure rises, and oxgenated blood is diverted away from the stomach, halting digestion and causing the 'nervous' sensation of butterflies causing skin to turn pale. And puts strain on the immune system like liver and kidneys.
Our bodies are designed to respond to stress. It is only when stressful situations over a prolonged period of time the body starts to suffer damage. Under constant pressure it raises blood pressure, heart rate, causes problem with the skin, digestion, migraine, back pain and heart problems.
Massage helps to combat harmful effects of long term stress it allows the body to slow down and reduces the effects of the stress hormone. It slows down breathing, relaxes muscles which prevent more adrenaline and cortisol into the blood stream. It simultaneously stimulates the skin, major organs to boost circulation and lymphatic drainage around the body.
MASSAGE lifts the mood helps fight pain boosts self esteem and dissolves the effects of stress in turn allows the immune system and major organs to return to function normally.
The foot is an architectural wonder it contains 26 bones, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles all served by nerves which cover every area and surface of the body.
In reflexology applying pressure to these nerves transmit energy and sends electrical messages around the body simulating or sedating the parts of the body that correspond to the relevant reflexes.
