DO you suffer from sciatica â?? that very painful and debilitating condition that can stop you in your tracks? If so, then read on as there may be a natural way to overcome it.
The difficulty with sciatica and backache in general, is that when we are in pain, it causes us to contract our muscles. Contracted muscles cause more pain, which in turn causes our muscles to contract more. We end up in a vicious circle of pain and contraction which just doesn’t seem to end.
This is where reflexology can play a role. Whether the sciatica is caused by root pressure or muscle tension, a good reflexologist will be able to identify and work the relevant reflexes in the feet, legs and hands. Systematic stimulation of these reflexes helps reduce pain, induces deep relaxation and helps stop the cycle. Sometimes relaxing the body can be the most important step to relieving sciatica.
Sciatica doesn’t have to stop you in your tracks. If you would like to know more about how reflexology may be able to help you or to book a treatment, contact Sarah Crossman (PRM CRM5) at Life Reflexology on 07531 831553 or visit www.lifereflexology.co.uk
