So many people today complain about cold feet. It especially seems to affect woman above the age of 40.
To many times in life will the person beg to put their feet against their partner to warm them up, only to be rejected fervently and emphatically. No one likes cold feet touching them in the bed at night and with that the person with cold feet suffers in silence. Even three pairs of socks will not comfort the penguin pair. ‘Why are my feet so cold?’ they ask.
In the majority of all cases it is poor circulation to the feet. Blood is the cooling and warming mechanism for the feet. There is no shivering in the feet that can produce heat through muscular tissue friction like in the case of other areas in the body. So the feet are on their own, so to speak, and warm blood is needed.
That’s where the reflexologist comes in. Reflexology uses pressure to induce circulation in the feet and helps clear congestion in the tissue and ligament fibers so that greater flexibility, nerve impulses and blood flow.
I worked on an 84-year-old lady who has suffered with cold feet for years; yet after one treatment she has reported to me that her feet have been toasty warm. After her treatment today, she felt warm all over, even though it was 55 degrees outside.
Reflexology works and I have an 84-year-old patient to prove it.
