Do you frequently have pain or tension in your neck? Often this condition is caused by everyday stress. Stress creates an imbalance in the internal environment of the body and disturbs its normal functioning. Since 7 of the body’s major systems pass through the neck*, it is no wonder that constriction of this area has a direct, negative impact on your entire body and your overall health. Conditions such as headaches, fatigue and lack of energy may be caused by this type of stress.
Never fear, Reflexology can help! Reflexology’s primary benefits include stress relief, pain reduction, relaxation, revitalized energy and improved circulation. You may feel relief from neck pain and tension in as little as one session, yet ongoing relief can be achieved through multiple sessions.
