The Remarkable Benefits of Reflexology on the Nervous System

Nov 15, 2023


Reflexology, an ancient practice believed to have originated in China and Egypt, has stood the test of time, evolving into a widely respected modality for improving physical and mental well-being. As a Reiki Master and qualified Reflexologist since 1999, I have witnessed firsthand the profound impact they can have. Reflexology has an amazing impact on the nervous system. In this blog post, I'll explore how Reflexology works on the nervous system and the myriad benefits it offers.

The Science Behind Reflexology

Reflexology is grounded in the principle that specific points on the feet, hands, face, and ears correspond to all organs and systems in the body. The belief is, that stimulating these points with specific techniques and pressure can have therapeutic effects, promoting health in the related body parts. I have seen this happen multiple times over the years.

How Reflexology Influences the Nervous System

  • Stress Reduction: One of the most immediate effects of Reflexology is stress reduction. When reflex points are stimulated, the body's relaxation response is triggered, reducing cortisol levels, and helping calm the nervous system.
  • Improved Nerve Function: Regular Reflexology sessions can stimulate nerve endings, improving their function and responsiveness. This is particularly beneficial in revitalizing nerves affected by prolonged stress or ageing.
  • Enhanced Circulation: Reflexology promotes improved lymph flow and better blood circulation, ensuring that the nervous system receives an ample supply of oxygen and nutrients essential for its optimal functioning

Benefits of Reflexology on Mental Well-being

  • Anxiety and Depression Relief: Many clients report significant relief from symptoms of anxiety and depression. The calming effect of Reflexology on the nervous system can help balance mood and emotions. My created course
  • Better Sleep Quality: By reducing stress and inducing relaxation, Reflexology can lead to improved sleep patterns, which is crucial for cognitive function and overall mental health. My created course
  • Pain Reduction: Reflexology can help mitigate several types of pain, including headaches, by triggering the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers. Muscle and joint pain also benefit from the specific Treatment of Pain techniques.

My Approach to Reflexology

My techniques embrace a holistic approach, integrating Reflexology on the feet, hands, face, and ears where relevant to the needs of the day. Each session is tailored to the individual's needs, ensuring a deeply personalized experience. As a Reiki Master, I also incorporate energy healing to enhance the benefits of Reflexology, creating a comprehensive treatment that addresses both physical and emotional well-being.


The intersection of Reflexology and the nervous system is a testament to the body's remarkable ability to heal and find balance. Whether you're seeking relief from stress, pain, or emotional imbalances, Reflexology offers a non-invasive, holistic path to wellness. I have seen improved quality of life happening as symptoms from illnesses ease.

For those interested in exploring the healing power of reflexology, I invite you to experience its transformative effects. With over two decades of practice, I am committed to helping clients achieve a harmonious balance in both body and mind.
