Good Monday everyone!!! Today we are talking about a common ailment that plagues quite a few people in the general population, neuropathy. While some people may experience neuropathy intermittently due to poor circulation, many people experience it due to chronic disease such as diabetes, or a a side effect from chemotherapy. The most common symptoms of neuropathy are consistent hand and foot pain, numbness in the hands and feet, burning pain, sharp, jabbing pain, extreme sensitivity to touch, lack of coordination and muscle weakness or paralysis. Aside from diabetes and chemotherapy, neuropathy is a result of infections, metabolic problems, toxin buildup, and injury.
How does reflexology help? Reflexology helps to improve circulation. New blood provides new oxygen to the nerves. It cleans out toxins and helps clean out stagnation. It also works by relaxing the muscles of the feet and hands that have often trapped the nerves that are causing the problem! This can provide amazing pain relief and help to lessen neuropathic episodes.
Looking for something that actually works? Try reflexology!
