Back pain

Over 70% of the population suffer from back pain (NHS information), mostly in the lower back. Reflexology may be very good for alleviating such pain by encouraging the blood flow to the seat of the pain, thus helping the body to heal itself. Through the reflexes in the feet the treatment may reduce inflammation as well as muscle and nerve tension that inevitably surrounds painful areas. Certain special techniques are particularly good for sciatic pain and may produce instant results in some people.
