Reflexology for diabetes

Massage therapy could be incorporated into relaxation therapy, but it also serves another purpose that can be particularly useful for diabetes sufferers. By skilfully kneading the body’s tissue, massage can stimulate better blood movement around the body. Improved circulation can do wonders for diabetic neuropathy and other diabetes-related complications.

Massage takes many forms, some of which may be more suitable for diabetics than others. Whilst some massages are particularly oriented towards massage, others are more specifically designed to reach different tissue areas. Once again, it is suggested that you consult closely with your healthcare team before using massage therapy as a diabetic, even for relaxation purposes. Reflexology is a form of massage based on a number of bodily reflex points.

The treatment of diabetes by foot therapy is focused on adjusting the function of central nerve system, thus enhancing the activity of endocrine gland function and that of the secretion function of insulin.
The treatment for diabetes by foot therapy is successful, but it needs a long-term treatment.
