What do you do when your back hurts? I am sure that you will look for pain relieving gels, stretches, painkillers, and even try massage to get rid of the pain. But did you know that your feet can provide relief for back pain? I know that this seems odd but it works.
In fact, the ancient healing method of reflexology is based on the theory that all our body parts and organs are connected to the feet. While the hands and the ears are also connected to our body parts and organs just like the feet, most of the reflexologists out there focus on the feet. This is mainly due to the fact that feet are bigger making it easy for a reflexologist to work on precisely.
It has been proven that reflexology can be used for pain relief. And the best thing is that it can provide pain relief within one session. Despite the fact that it can work within one session, it is good to take multiple sessions for long-term results.
It is good to consider going for 6 sessions or more to enjoy the full benefits of reflexology. A good way is to get reflexology 2 or 3 times a week for a number of weeks and then reduce it to once a week, then later to once a month. Such a protocol will help maintain your well-being.
When it comes to back pain, there are many reflexes of importance. The areas that the reflexologist should focus on include the hip, spine, and sciatic reflexes. If your back pain is caused by kidney problems, then those reflexes must be worked on precisely.
