Massage Chair Recliners Reduce Stress with Reflexology Massage
The pressures of life seem to be constant, yet the relief of such pressures is so erratic. There are simple and effective means to reduce stress and anxiety. For example, getting a foot reflexology massage can effectively help you relax. Besides just feeling great, a reflexology foot massage can relieve headaches, pain in your back and anxiety. The best massage chairs perform foot reflexology massages right in the comfort of home. Get relief from stress while feeling good with a massage chair recliner.
The art of reflexology has advanced with modern technology. From the beginning of time, people practiced massage therapy. Many ancient societies noticed that there were correlations between applying pressure on the feet in hands and relief of discomfort in certain organs. By applying pressure in certain areas of the feet, pain and discomfort was relieved in other parts of the body. These areas have been thoroughly mapped and now they are known as reflexology points.
Dr. Fitzgerald went on to map out these zones and created the first modern reflexology charts. A foot massage uses certain strokes to relax the feet and the individual. However, foot reflexology helps to increase the health and well being of the entire body. As foot reflexology is applied, healing of other parts of the body began. Sometimes, the healing was spontaneous, but more often, the healing takes periodic treatments to sustain.
Why is reflexology massage effective? Interestingly, the body reacts to stress or anxiety based on a flight or fight reaction. The stress reaction mobilizes the body through the nervous system. The feet are ready to run and the hands are ready to fight. The feet and hands need the support of the major organs and muscles to protect the body, so these too are mobilized. Reflexology helps to calm the feet and the major organs and muscles thus reducing the tension of stress and anxiety.
The Panasonic Real Pro Ultra and the Omega Montage Premier massage chair both offer reflexology foot massage. These reflexology massages use air compression massage. The air system will gently squeeze, hold and then release your feet. This gentle action helps to relieve tension in the feet. Additionally, reflexology nodes are built into the foot wells to induce full body relaxation. These massage chair recliners are effective in helping you to relax.
One of the critical discoveries by Dr. Fitzgerald was that reflexology massage had many healing benefits when an individual received continuous, periodic treatments. He found that just doing a sporadic reflexology massage did not have the same results as patients that received the treatment on a recurring basis. The build up of stress is a continuous process and the relief of such build up must also be continuous. This is a critical distinction with parallels to many types of health issues like diet and exercise which need to be on a continuous basis.
To get the full benefit of foot reflexology massage, it needs to be administered on a frequent basis. This can be inconvenient to have to always go to a massage therapist to receive treatment. Another terrific alternative is a massage chair recliner. Receive a daily reflexology foot massage at the end of a long day. Just come home, kick off your shoes and let your massage chair melt the stress and anxiety away.
