I’ve been trying out numerous natural methods to help with my currently relapse including sleep problems and stumbled upon reflexology. A lot of people have mentioned this type of treatment to me before but I’ve found it too expensive so instead I researched online and thanks to Google I can now perform reflexology on myself.
I found a diagram of the pressure points in your feet to focus on and even your partner could do this for you! Free foot massage anyone?
The benefits of reflexology are endless and I’m not going to talk about them all because I’m sharing how it’s helping me with my multiple sclerosis symptoms. I use a beautiful body butter from The Body Shop at night and every night before I go to sleep. I perform about 2-3 minutes on each foot just taking the time and following the instructions of where to massage.
Now my left foot is still numb from this relapse, however I’ve found since massaging my feet in this way I’m finding an ever so slight improvement. I am starting to feel something in my left foot. Now whether that’s just the reflexology or my relapse improving I suppose we’ll never truly know.
The other amazing benefit that I’ve found with performing reflexology on myself is that it COMPLETELY relaxes me and I’ve also noticed that I sleep through the night so much better and am able to drift off to sleep much easier as well. Reflexology is very helpful and I plan to continue this therapy from now on.
Have you ever tried reflexology?
