When your back is hurting, you will try almost anything to relieve your pain. Most back pain sufferers have tried a variety of topical pain relief medications, over the counter medications, stretches, prescription med and massage in an attempt to relieve their pain. Unfortunately, many people do not realize that their feet may be the answer to their back pain.
It may seem odd to think about your feet when you are experiencing a backache; however, reflexology understands that everything is connected to your feet. All of the parts of your body and its organs are mirrored in your feet. In addition to your feet, reflexology uses the hands and the ears; however, most reflexologist focuses on the feet because they are larger and allow the reflexologist to precisely work on the area that needs relief.
Reflexology helps to relieve your pain effectively. Relief can be found in as little as one session; however, it will take multiple sessions (typically six or more sessions) to find long-term relief and lasting results. The best reflexology protocol involves two to three treatments weekly for a few weeks. Then you will slowly taper down to one session once a week and then on down to once a month to maintain your relief.
There are several reflexes involved with back pain reflexology. The reflexologist should concentrate on sciatic reflexes, hip reflexes and spinal reflexes. If your back pain is caused by kidney issues, the reflexologist should work on those reflexes. Reflexology will help quickly relieve your back pain and help you heal.
