De-stress with a Foot Reflexology Massage at Cool Aroma

A Foot Reflexology treatment is miles away from a traditional foot massage. If you are contemplating getting one, read on for everything you need to know before you book.

What is the difference between Reflexology and a Massage?

While these treatments seem like one, there are key differences between Foot Reflexology and Foot Massage the primary one being Foot Reflexology is where the therapist applies pressure on specific points on the foot to restore a healthy flow of energy throughout the body. Foot Massage on the other hand is the manipulation of tissues to relax the body, relieve stiffness, and improve the circulation of blood.

There are many amazing benefits of adding a regular Reflexology Massage treatment at a foot spa, in your selfcare regimen.

Beyond the feel good:

Besides relaxing your body into a massage that involves kneading the heel of the foot, pulling toes, and push-pull of the arch, Reflexology revolves around applying pressure to specific areas of the foot.

Foot heals body:

Through the application of pressure to specific points, Reflexology targets issues in the rest of your body. For example, if you have sinus issues, the therapist will focus on your toes. If you have migraine issues, they will focus on the upper part of your foot, so on and so forth.

Cleanses the body:

It is interesting to note that a thorough Foot Reflexology massage cleanses the body’s toxins and improves the circulation of blood and oxygen throughout the body.

Boosts Metabolism:

If you want to kickstart your metabolism and strengthen your immune system, a consistent Foot Reflexology massage could be immensely beneficial.

If you are looking for a Foot Reflexology massage for men that not only promises the above benefits but also balances the body’s energies, relieves stress, promotes healing, in a clean, hygienic spa with trained professional therapists, book an appointment at Cool Aroma The Gentlemen’s Spa today.

Five ways reflexology can help men reduce stress

Stress can have a very damaging impact on your health, increasing the risk of an early death. While men and women will both experience stress, men are more likely to develop health complications as a result. Finding ways to reduce stress is crucial to staying healthy and reflexology is the foot massage Dubai residents have been relying on to improve their lives.

Here are a few ways it could help you too:

Improves blood circulation

Foot reflexology improves your circulation, which in turn lowers your risk of heart disease and stroke. Men are particularly prone to developing heart conditions, but by boosting your circulation you minimise the risks.

Lowers blood pressure

High blood pressure is also a health risk, and can be an indication that someone’s heart is not functioning as well as it should. Lower your blood pressure with foot reflexology and you’re less likely to experience problems.

Reduced fatigue

A person who practices foot massage benefits from lower levels of fatigue. Since our working culture requires us to put in longer hours, you risk burning out if you don’t take care of yourself.

Fewer feelings of panic

Men don’t always like to admit feeling stressed or suffering panic attacks. Stress affects the body’s endocrine system which is responsible for the ‘fight or flight’ response, but foot reflexology can be used to lower that panic mode and leave you feeling calmer and more relaxed.

Reduced anxiety

Clinical trials conducted in hospitals have shown that foot massage benefits those suffering from anxiety. Men are often more reluctant to talk about their mental wellbeing, but reflexology sessions could offer a safe space to tackle feelings of anxiety or unhappiness.

Foot reflexology can be particularly beneficial to men, helping them cope with the stresses of daily life. Cool Aroma Spa has a dedicated team of highly trained reflexologists, many of them leading practitioners in Dubai and the wider the UAE. We offer a relaxing, calm environment in which you can discover the stress-reducing effects of reflexology for yourself. Get in touch today to book your session.
