REFLEXOLOGY FOR SLEEP

SLEEP
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
remember when you were a child and you fought your naps with every fibre of your being and now the only thing you truly wish to do is SLEEP?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
we underestimate just how important sleep is to all human function. sleep is required for system repair, brain function, hormone balance, stress relief, digestive work.. without the proper amount (recent studies are saying that with today’s Western lifestyle we should be getting NINE hours DAILY) we work in a continual deficit that affects our relationships, our moods, our productivity, and yes – our FERTILITY! it takes a physical toll on the body as well and we start experiencing aches and pains that we’ve not had before. our systems malfunction and after time we also lose the ability to fall asleep or stay asleep, perpetuating the issue to a deeper degree
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
REFLEXOLOGY is an exceptionally pleasant way to get back to sleep again. with Reflexology we can relax the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems to turn your brain off and switch your system into Neutral, we reset the Endocrine system and tap into the Pineal gland to start the Seratonin flowing freely again. We relax the Musculoskeletal system to remove any tension that might be holding you back from deep sleep and set you up for a proper rest.

REFLEXOLOGY FOR STRESS

Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what is stress anyway? People have very different ideas to what stress is, but the most common definition of stress would include “physical, mental, or emotional strain or tension”. Indeed most people don’t consider the positive stress or “eustress” when they talk about their stress levels.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“eustress” is defined as stress in your daily life that has positive connotations such as: marriage, having a baby, promotion, winning money, new friends, etc.. for example, winning an election is just as stressful as losing one, or even more so!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
there are actually different types of stress: acute stress, chronic stress, eustress, and distress.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Acute stress is defined as fight or flight. The body prepares to defend itself. It takes about 90 minutes for the metabolism to return to normal when the response is over.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chronic Stress is defined as the cost of daily living: bills, kids, jobs…This is the stress we tend to ignore or push down. Left uncontrolled this stress affects your health- your body and your immune system.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eustress, as defined above is stress in daily life that has positive connotations.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And Distress Stress is defined as stress in daily life that has negative connotations such as: Divorce, Punishment, Injury, Negative feelings, Financial Problems, Work Difficulties
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to the American Institute of Stress, 77% of people regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress, 73% of people regularly experience psychological symptoms caused by stress, 33% of people feel like they are living with extreme stress, 48% of people feel their stress has increased over the last 5 years, 76% cited money and work as their leading cause of stress, and 48% reported laying awake at night due to stress.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
REFLEXOLOGY removes the symptoms of stress from your body by sedating the Central Nervous System, regulating your circulation and improving sleep patterns often after only 1 treatment. f

REFLEXOLOGY FOR MALE FERTILITY

THERE IS NO PILL THAT TREATS BROKEN SPERM!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ever wonder why when there’s a sperm issue in a couple’s Fertility journey the doctors recommend IUI IVF or ICSI?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ever wonder why we are performing surgery on one partner when the Fertility challenge lies with the other partner?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
why we are pumping unhealthy amounts of “hormones” into women – exposing them to very real and very frequent risk of Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome (go ahead and google those consequences) just so an abnormal amount of eggs can be harvested and hopefully fertilized with these poor quality sperm?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BECAUSE THERE IS NO PILL THAT TREATS BROKEN SPERM, and the medical world is left with no alternative but to do the above⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and I don’t know if they just assume you GUYS aren’t willing or able or capable of doing the work.. but I have VERY GOOD NEWS FOR YOU!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
you don’t need a pill to fix your broken sperm (save for a genetic condition that renders you sterile or missing components like the vas deferens). you can completely turn around your own numbers in 90-100 days by taking ownership of your diet and lifestyle choices and seeing a ReproFlexology Therapist who can work naturally with your body to bring any condition into remission and amp up those sperm building hormones.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
they say a diagnosis of sterility for a male is on the same scale of devestation as a cancer diagnosis, psychologically. but it doesn’t have to remain that way. take back your Fertility, guys! 💙

REFLEXOLOGY FOR HEAVY PAINFUL PERIODS

DYSMENORRHEA & MENORRHAGIA

“my teen has super painful and heavy bleeds, and really doesn’t want to take the Oral Contraceptive Pill to manage it. can ReproFlexology help?”

absolutely! in fact, OCP should never be used to regulate or manage menstrual cycle problems because that’s not what it does, that’s not what it’s designed to do. OCP was designed to shut down your reproductive system (google menopause consequences because this is what OCP is) so that pregnancy cannot occur. it does absolutely nothing to balance hormones and reduce the period symptoms tour teen is facing, so once they decide to come off the OCP their symptoms are the same or worse as when they started.

with ReproFlexology protocols we are able to address the hormonal imbalance that is causing the period problem and help your teen come to experience a trouble free period – as is normal. in fact, the younger the period problems are addressed, the quicker the response time to ReproFlexology techniques because the body hasn’t been out of balance for years or decades.

ReproFlexology is not just for Fertility.. it’s for anyone experiencing any kind of cycle disruption or any disorder of reproductive organs.tag

CRANIOSACRAL REFLEXOLOGY

This weekend I attended a 1 day workshop by Carol Faguy on Craniosacral Reflexology.

Craniosacral Reflexology works just like traditional Craniosacral Therapy, however the treatment is provided to the foot or the hand. It was created by the late Dr Martine Faure Anderson and is described by Carol Faguy of Quebec Reflex as follows: “Unlike traditional foot reflexology, which focuses on the general systems of the body and its parts, the focus and intent of CSR is to enhance the flow of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the body, by working on the reflex areas related to the craniosacral system, consisting of the CSF and the membranes (meninges) which surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, the bones and sutures of the skull and the spinal vertebrae and the twelve pairs of cranial nerves.”

While the 1 day workshop created by Carol Faguy does not qualify me to call myself a Craniosacral Reflexology Therapist (indeed the full training is 20 days long and highly intensive), I do have a mini CSR Protocol that I can incorporate into my treatments to bring my treatments to a new and higher level.

Thank you @reflexquebec and thank you Dr Faure Alderson, for your hard work 💕
