Reflexology and Menopause

Reflexology and Menopause

The symptoms of menopause can be both physical and emotional, including:

  • Loss of memory or concentration
  • Increased stress and anxiety
  • Depression or a low mood
  • Change in Libido
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Bone density changes
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Hot flushes and night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Weak bladder

Reflexology may help offer some relief from the symptoms of menopause by rebalancing hormones, reducing stress and allowing the client to relax in a safe, comforting environment.

British researchers have found that both foot reflexology and foot massage  reduced menopausal symptoms of anxiety, depression, hot flushes and night sweats by some 30%-50%.
