Reflexology and the Stress of Illness

Chronic illness has a devastating impact, not just physically, but also emotionally and spiritually. Living with illness can be stressful and worrying and your body reacts to this kind of stress in the same way as the more conscious type. 

It can cause anxiety, feelings of being overwhelmed, difficulty thinking or remembering, suppression of your immune system and interference with sleep.  Not only are you coping with managing your illness your body is in a state of high alert.

Reflexology has an important role to play alongside conventional medical treatments.  Where there is fear and distress the touch of reflexology can communicate reassurance, compassion and security.  Supporting your body with reflexology could help reduce the stress of a wide range of conditions as you enter into a profound state of relaxation.
