Do you struggle to get to sleep no matter how tired you are? Or do you wake up in the middle of the night and lie awake for hours, anxiously watching the clock? Insomnia is a common problem that takes a toll on your energy, mood, health, and ability to function during the day. Chronic insomnia can even contribute to serious health problems. Simple changes to your lifestyle and daily habits can put a stop to sleepless nights.
Treating insomnia naturally through the power of massage is a great option for health.
Research has shown that regular insomnia massage therapy not only reduces pain and anxiety but also increases relaxation, which can help restore your sleep pattern.
“When you are deprived of deep sleep, certain kinds of pain chemicals are released,” explains Dr. Tiffany Field, director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine. But that changes with any kind of massage, whether for insomnia or increased flexibility or greater relaxation.
“There is a release of serotonin, which is the body’s natural production of anti-pain chemicals. Massage is very effective at increasing deep sleep.”

Reflexology is an ancient healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes on the feet which correspond to every part, organ and gland of the body. Reflexology relaxes and activates the healing powers of the body and balances the biological systems.
Reflexology induces deep relaxation, relieving tension held in the body. Doctors agree that a variety of health problems can be linked to stress. When the body is under stress, energy reserves are quickly depleted and less energy is available to fight infections or make repairs. When we are in a deeply relaxed state, the body’s healing power is activated. Another symptom of a stressed lifestyle is decreased circulation.
Reflexology improves circulation, the blood’s capacity to carry vital nutrients where needed and remove toxins and waste products more efficiently. Other than the circulatory system the body also has other ways to remove toxins – for example, the lymphatic system and digestive system. Stress affects these systems so that they don’t function optimally. Reflexology has the effect of increasing the flow and movement of these systems by decreasing stress held in the body.
Reflexology revitalizes energy. Most of us complain from time to time of “low energy”. It can appear as an inability to concentrate, a lack of motivation for things we usually enjoy or a physical feeling of tiredness. By opening up any blocked pathways in the body, we feel better about ourselves, renewed and in a better mood, both immediately after a treatment and for several days afterwards.
Reflexology also acts to reduce pain by encouraging the body to create endorphins and the gentle pressure applied to the reflexes interrupts the pain cycle. Perhaps, the greatest benefit is reflexology’s role as preventative health care.
Preventative health care can save a lot of time, money and frustrations and maintain a good quality of life. The negative effects of emotions, attitudes, stress, lifestyle and improper eating can throw the body out of sync. If one part doesn’t work properly the whole body suffers. Then the minor aches, pains and general fatigue that are often the forerunners of more serious complaints begin to show themselves.
