Lupus and Reflexology

Have you considered reflexology to ease lupus? Reflexology is an ancient practice passed down through the ages. Proof of the practice may date back to pre-dynastic China 3000 BC. It is a homeopathic massage technique designed to relieve pain. Reflexology zones are located in the feet, hands, teeth, ears, and tongue

In modern reflexology, the foot is divided into 12 pressure zones. Reflexology stimulates nerves in the body to encourage blood flow. Because of this, reflexology is thought to prevent and stop pain. Practicing these techniques may help with stress, fibromyalgia, chronic bowel diseases, muscle pain, and even difficulty breathing due to tight muscles.

How can reflexology help with lupus? Based on pressure points in the hands and feet that are said to connect to the nervous system, reflexologists pinpoint specific glands and organs to treat them via massage. Whether it actually connects to these other parts of the body is somewhat controversial. However, the simple idea of touch therapy may play a role. When we feel connected to others, we gain a stronger sense of overall well-being.
