👣How can reflexology help with Eczema👣

 
Conventional medicine tends to treat the symptoms by using creams and emollients, and whilst these can be helpful in calming the discomfort, they do not cure the condition, and some potent steroids can be prescribed which have long term adverse side effects. Long term use can cause resistance to the medication and therefore ineffective. Steroids or corticosteroids can also stunt growth , weaken bones, suppress the adrenal glands and cause many other problems.
There are many causes of skin conditions, both physical and/or emotional, and there are many natural ways to treat eczema, a combined, holistic approach being the most effective, e.g. diet and nutrition and allergy testing. You may also want to consider some complimentary therapies such as homeopathy, and reflexology treatments.
Reflexology is a drug-free, natural therapy that may help understand the root causes, rather than just treating the symptoms, and therefore aiming to remove not just reduce the condition, or at least treat it much more effectively.
As a reflexologist I would work your Thyroid and Adrenals; liver, kidneys, intestines and diaphragm, and the areas affected.
Why does it help to work these reflexes?
Thyroid and Adrenal Glands – to balance body chemistry and to reduce skin inflammation
Liver and kidneys – to detoxify, to help excrete toxins through the bloodstream instead of through the skin. Working the live can also release emotions of anger or anxiety.
Intestines – for food allergies, and gut cleansing
Diaphragm – to relax nerves and tension, to help with the discomfort experienced by sore, inflamed skin.
Areas effected, e.g knees, or face – to release fearful insecurity and to allow healing to occur.
All other areas – to ease discomfort and induce a sense of calm.
All other feet reflexes will be worked as well, and often there is an element of surprise as to why some reflexes are sensitive that are not directly associated with skin conditions, but may form part of the reason. Congestion in other areas can be attributed to skin conditions, and may even be down to emotional causes, not physical. For example, grief or loss may manifest in eczema symptoms or another condition, stress at work or in relationships or money worries may also manifest itself this way. It may be dependent on what your body is susceptible to at the time.
Eczema can be caused by emotional factors such as suppressed irritability at others getting under your skin. Emotions fester beneath the skin’s surface and erupt at times of extreme anxiety or even during periods of total relaxation.
 
Reflexology can support all of this and also provide an hour of relaxation.
