Where conventional medicine has failed, natural medicine can make a real difference. This is true of herbal medicine, meditation, and massage. This article deals with how reflexology is helping to alleviate symptoms and improve one's overall health.

Far Eastern cultures have been using alternative treatments for thousands of years. In most places of the world, natural medicine is the first line of defense against sickness and disease. Even the most technically advanced countries such as China and Japan appreciate the effectiveness and simplicity of natural medicine. We could benefit from the knowledge that has been gathered by those cultures. Where conventional medicine has failed, natural medicine can make a real difference.

Natural medicine and alternative treatments has become a booming industry. Our society has become interested in how to help cure us from common problems such as allergies, depression and anxiety. With so many products claiming to be the next miracle cure, how do you really know what kind of alternative therapy to use? Maybe it is time to give reflexology a try.

If you are unfamiliar with reflexology, here are the basics:

Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure in a strategic manner to areas of the feet and hands, and the face and ears. Reflexologists see the hands and feet as a portal to the body's systems. Each section of the feet and hands correlate to a specific organ. By stimulating nerves on specific areas of the feet and hands, you can stimulate blood flow and eliminate toxin buildup in the corresponding organs and systems of the body.

Although reflexologists cannot diagnose or claim to cure a sickness or disease, it is one of the most sought-after treatments today. Not only is it beneficial as a tool for relaxation and stress relief, but it is also an effective tool for improving circulation; relieving pain, and as an immune and nervous system stimulator. Many with illnesses such as allergies; chronic sinus problems; acid reflux; migraines; PMS; menopause; insomnia; fertility problems and even arthritis have been helped tremendously by reflexology treatments.

What do you do if you don't like the idea of others touching your feet? What if you can't afford sessions with a reflexologist? You can opt to learn basic reflexology yourself. I prefer this method not only because it is free, but also because it is convenient. If you want to dig in and learn the basics, there are many online reflexology courses you can take. Moreover, many adult education programs offer weekend reflexology programs. Check with your local school district to find a class near you. Although these weekend seminars will not authorize you to claim yourself as a reflexologist, you will learn enough to effectively treat yourself and your family.

The bottom line is that reflexology has proved to be a therapy that is beneficial for everyone. It is the perfect complimentary medicine whether or not you must take prescription drugs or not. Once you try it you will understand why reflexology has found a permanent place in the health industry.
