D is for…Β 

Continuing on with my blog series on common aliments that Massage or Reflexology can help with is D for Diabetes.
This is a condition that is caused by lack of insulin produced by the body and can be treated externally by daily injections, diet and/or medication.

In a Refexology session, the reflexologist will start off with a general treatment to help restore balance and then focus on the Pituitary gland reflex (on the big toes) – to help control hormonal activity and the Pancreas reflex as this where the insulin is produced (down the middle of left foot). Β Associated reflexes are also the Adrenal glands and the Kidneys reflexes.

Like any medical condition, Reflexology is never used for Diabetes without the doctors permission first of all. (Or a consent form signed).

It is recommended that you get at least 4-6 Reflexology sessions to allow the body to respond to the treatments.
