FOOT REFLEXOLOGY THERAPY
MyoFix Foot Reflexology Massage
Foot reflexology massage is an ancient therapy that uses pressure applied to specific zones of the feet and legs which are believe to be networked to certain organs and parts our bodies. Foot reflexology massage comes about from the ancient Chinese belief in qi or “internal electro energy.” According to this belief, qi flows through each person. When a person feels stressed (stress can be due to many reasons such as from the: environment, food, sleep etc.) It affects the flow of qi in the body which creates an instability in the way our body interacts and function effectively, thus resulting in illness, pain, degeneration and deterioration of the body.
MyoFix’s Foot Reflexology Massage Therapy focus is to stimulate the flow of qi in the body and maintain it at a balanced healthy level.
MyoFix Herbal Warm Foot Soak Therapy
In modern society, if you sit at the desk for a long time or stand for a whole day at work, it is easy to cause poor circulation around your lower limbs. As a result, many people often feel cold feet or even swelling. This symptoms of poor circulation of the lower limbs will cause the overall circulation of the body to be impeded over time hence causing backaches and even cervical spondylosis.
Warm foot soak therapy is a very effective way to care for this circulation problem. When your feet are cold, blood circulation will slow down. Soaking your feet with warm water can promote blood circulation, improve cardiovascular function, and relieve fatigue.
The feet are the farthest place from the human body to the heart. In addition to gravity making it difficult for blood to return to the heart, it must also support the weight of the body. Therefore, venous return disorders often occur, and varicose veins always occur in the lower limbs and rarely in the upper limbs. Soaking feet in warm water can relieve soreness of the lower limbs, make the body relaxed and even help those with insomnia to get better sleep.
Modern medicine believes that the foot is the “second heart” of the human body. There are countless nerve endings on the foot that are closely connected with the brain, which are closely related to human health. Soaking the feet can reduce the excitability of the brain, have an inhibitory effect on the cerebral cortex, soothe mood, calm the mind, improve sleep quality and promote deepen sleep.
In addition, there are 6 meridians on the feet that communicate with our spleen, stomach, liver, gallbladder, bladder and kidney. Soaking your feet in warm water will help clear these 6 meridians and promote blood circulation throughout the body, relax the body and improve the body’s self-immunity ability.

- Equivalent to 50 minutes of lymphatic drainage;
- Equivalent to 36 million cell movements;

Is Remedial Massage painful?Reduce stress and more
While remedial massage can be a relaxing experience, it is dependent upon the pressure you can tolerate as to what sensation your body will experience. Remedial massage is a highly skilled technique where the massage therapist can locate the problem area which is causing the pain and discomfort. It is very important to communicate to the therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside of your comfort range. There is usually some stiffness or tenderness after a remedial massage, but it should subside within a day or so.
How does Remedial Massage work?Remedial massage works on localised areas of your body to break down muscle spasms (knot) and soften up the hard tissue to release any stiffness. Regular massage is an effective treatment to bring back muscle strength and tone. Remedial massage helps to relax the muscles, making musculoskeletal adjustment easier.
What is the difference between Physiotherapy and Remedial Massage?Physiotherapy is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of conditions which result in pain, restricted movement, weakness and altered mobility caused by degeneration, illness or accident. Physiotherapists are qualified to use electrotherapy such as TENS and ultrasound. Traction, manipulation and mobilisation of jaw/limb and vertebral joints are also utilised.
Remedial massage therapy is a hands-on treatment to soften tissue and restore function, relieve pain, promote healing and decrease muscle spasms and/or tension to improve physical or athletic performance. Remedial massage stimulates circulation and improves blood flow to the localised area.
Both physiotherapists and remedial massage therapists are able to prescribe strengthening exercises, stretches, balance exercises and postural training.
Can you exercise after a Remedial Massage?Many massage therapists recommend clients avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after a bodywork session.
Strenuous exercise includes activities such as running, high intensity aerobics, weight lifting or power yoga classes.
What is a Remedial Massage Therapist?A remedial massage therapist has completed extensive studies and has a detailed knowledge of the muscular system, the function of the body and most common conditions and treatments for said conditions.
