Running is great exercise. It is not only an intensive cardiovascular workout, but also involves other systems in the body, such as circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, muscular and lymphatic. Whether you’re a dedicated marathon runner or someone who only has time for a short jog at the weekend (like me), we’d all like to improve our performance, maybe increase our speed, distance or stamina and we’d certainly all like to be able to recover from a run quicker, decrease the muscle stiffness and avoid injuries.
Anecdotally, reflexology has proven to be a miracle for some women, who swear that it was regular massages that helped them to finally conceive. Many medical doctors, while disagreeing that reflexology might be able to specifically target the internal organs, hormone imbalances, or improperly functioning systems that are contributing to infertility, do agree that helping a women who is TTC to relax and relieve stress is invaluable, and it is this ability to relieve stress that might contribute to a greater chance of conceiving.
Reflexology is a treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet, hands, and ears that are connected through the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels and helps to restore homeostasis balance in the body.
