Reflexology and hormones of the endocrine system
Most complementary therapists use the word balance – a lot! The endocrine system is the way our bodies maintain balance so they are functioning optimally. As a reflexologist I work on all the organs of the endocrine system – from the master gland and overall commander the pituitary to the ovaries and thyroid. This is important for all our overall day to day functioning but particularly important for reproductive cycles. For women this cycle is ever present for a large part of their lives, a monthly trial and then the changes of the menopause which can be a prolonged and wearing experience for many.
As a reflexologist I do not claim the ability to eliminate these issues but have found that many women will find their symptoms become easier to tolerate after treatment with reflexology. The treatment aims to balance all the body systems but then return to focus on the endocrine system. Most clients will need around three treatments a week apart to settle the symptoms then can move to wider gaps between treatments which act as a nudge to the system. It’s very personal and the treatment will be tailored to you and your particular issues.
J came to me with typical symptoms of menopause. She says: ‘at the height of my hot flushes, sleeplessness, fatigue I visited Maggie on a regular basis. Reflexology calmed my symptoms and enhanced my wellbeing. It rebalances your whole system’.
Very happy to discuss your symptoms and how reflexology can help you.
