Benefits of Reflexology in Addiction Treatment

Reflexology a unique treatment that blends modern theory with ancient Chinese medicine is a holistic hands-on treatment that involves the application of gentle pressure and massages to specific reflex areas or zones of the body—usually the feet hands or even the ears. The treatment is noninvasive and creates no adverse side effects.

The theory behind reflexology is that the targeted points correspond directly to different organs as well as the body's muscular nervous circulatory and skeletal system. Blockages of energy within the body often a result of addiction illness or stress prevent the body from functioning at its best. When a trained reflexologist works on a particular area the stimulation helps to release the blockages. Health and well-being are improved by the free flow of energy throughout the entire system.

Reflexology also improves blood circulation which promotes the healthy flow of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues. The treatment is beneficial in recovery of substance abuse and addiction because it helps remove toxins in the blood which results in fewer cravings and reduces symptoms of withdrawal. Clients often report an instant feeling of relaxation reduction of anxiety increased energy and an overall sense of wellbeing after the first session which makes it easy for them to engage in further sessions.

Reflexology is not a cure for addiction or a substitute for therapy. However it is an effective complement to a holistic addiction treatment. This complementary therapy is widely accepted and is becoming increasingly popular at treatment centers around the world. At Paracelsus Recovery reflexology is an inherent part of a treatment program.
