What are the benefits of Reflexology during the hotter and drier summer months? There are many, but let's focus on the main ones.
Reflexology for the change of footwear
Your feet can come to rely on the support of heavier shoes and runners during the cooler months. Often the entire foot, and sometimes the ankle, are surrounded with reinforcements for the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Summer shoes not so much.
The muscles of the feet can become achy, painful and even spasm when they don't receive much support. Sandals and flip flops really don't provide much to protect your feet. Often summer brings extra activities outdoors and you can spend a lot of time on your feet.
Reflexology encourages all parts of the foot and ankle to completely relax, easing muscle ache and tension.
Reflexology to combat swelling and fluid build up
It's not uncommon to experience swollen feet during the hotter drier weather. Swollen feet are often caused by an accumulation of fluids and poor circulation. On those really hot days you may not feel like moving as much and that impacts your circulation...
Reflexology helps to increase blood flow and circulation while reducing swelling in the legs and feet.
While the shining sun often improves our mood many tend to take on a lot of busy outdoor activities. With kids out of school, opportunities for holidays, camping and hiking makes for some fund times but preparing for them can be stressful.
Reflexology is very relaxing. When in that calmer space stress levels wind down, inner harmony prevails and what seemed exasperating becomes easy.
