How Can Reflexology Help Ease Your Arthritis Pain?

Arthritis is a debilitating joint disease that is made up of about 100 different strains of the condition. Millions of adults - and children too - suffer from some form of arthritis. You have arthritis and it makes your everyday activities difficult.

You want relief, especially in your swollen and disfigured joints, so you can grip objects, walk, and enjoy work and hobbies with ease. You have a prescription to keep inflammation down, but you want to try something more to find pain relief and improve your body's joint flexibility.

Reflexology can help - find out what reflexology is and how the alternative therapy can bring you relief from your arthritis symptoms.

What Is Reflexology? 

Reflexology is an alternative and additional therapy treatment that revolves around the belief that the hands, feet, and other areas of the body contain nerve endings that communicate with the rest of the body. When these nerves are stimulated positively, they send signals to the rest of the body (targeting areas of concern, such as your arthritic joints) to feel less pain and stress and therefore heal.

Reflexology should only be performed by a reflexologist, a person who understands the many important pressure and nerve points of the body and how to stimulate positive pain relief.

How Does Reflexology Ease Arthritis Symptoms?

Reflexology is not intended to be used alone to treat medical conditions such as arthritis, but the addition of this type of therapy can greatly improve your painful and uncomfortable symptoms. Reflexology can make your arthritis more bearable in the following ways.

Pain Relief 

Your reflexologist will gently massage small, specific areas of your feet, sending signals of pain relief through your nerves to your afflicted joints. The therapy session may involve massaging your hands gently as well, depending on where your arthritis is most severe.

Toxin Release 

During your reflexology session, the gentle probing of key areas in your feet and hands allows your body to release toxins that are built up within you due to your arthritis condition. The release of these toxins gives you greater overall health and improved circulation, allowing your body to heal itself and reduce joint inflammation.

Stress Relief 

Not only does reflexology feel good, but the therapy does wonders for improving your body's stress levels as well. High levels of pain in your body put your body into a fight-or-flight state, which is uncomfortable and leads to physical and emotional stress. The reflexology procedure helps to reduce the stress hormones in your body, thus allowing your body to heal more naturally.

As a bonus, reflexology can also help you sleep more comfortably, which is essential to helping your body repair itself daily from your arthritis symptoms. You will have to undergo repeated reflexology treatments to see continued results, and your reflexologist will recommend you drink plenty of water and other fluids in between sessions to release the toxins freed during your sessions from your body.

Depending on the severity of your arthritis and where your pain is located, it may take a few treatments before you see noticeable improvement in your pain and mobility. Before starting a reflexology treatment, speak to your doctor first. Reflexology is a wonderful alternative medicine to try in addition to physical therapy, massage, and any medications you take for your symptoms.
