Reflexology in addiction recovery

Reflexology is a holistic, hands-on treatment that entails applying gentle pressure to specific reflex areas of the body, most commonly the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexology, also known as 'zone therapy,' is a complementary therapy that combines modern theory with ancient Chinese medicine. It is a noninvasive type of massage therapy that has no negative side effects.

Reflexology practitioners use the 'reflex map' of the hands and feet to identify areas of distress in the body's associated internal organs. These specific points correspond to various organs as well as the body's muscular, nervous, circulatory, and skeletal systems. Reflexology has numerous benefits, including improving the immune system, fertility, hormonal imbalances, and relieving tension or stress.

Reflexology treatment also boosts blood circulation and lymphatic movement which enables the body to flush out toxins. The procedure is highly beneficial in the recovery from substance abuse and can result in fewer cravings or reduced withdrawal symptoms. Reflexology, while not a replacement for therapy, can be an effective complementary therapy.

As needed, we incorporate reflexology into our treatment programs in both Zurich and London.
