Stress can be positive, keeping us healthy and full of life and giving us an extra burst of energy when needed. However, it is only intended to be a short term effect and when the response becomes prolonged, this becomes negative stress, which is very unhealthy.


Long term stress can:

  • Increase heart rate and blood pressure

  • Affect digestion leading to problems like irritable bowel syndrome

  • Cause sleeping difficulties

  • Emotional distress

  • Cause muscle tension

  • Suppress the immune system

  • Affect reproductive function


Whatever we can do to reduce stress in our lives is good for both our emotional and physical wellbeing.


Reflexology is a deeply relaxing treatment and can really help to reduce stress, so is a wonderful therapy to help rebalance and revitalise the body and mind.
