“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.”
Complementary therapists understand that wellbeing is so much more than tackling a list of medical conditions and this is what complementary therapies such as Reflexology aim to improve – the whole of the individual rather than a single symptom such as a cough or a pain.
The remit of the Government has been extended to include wellbeing. Local councils are setting up Health & Wellbeing Boards to work out what the needs of the community are. Find out more here – http://healthandcare.dh.gov.uk/what-is-healthwatch/
If the Government is concerned about our health and wellbeing then we should definitely be concerned about our own. Doing things that are good for your wellbeing benefits all aspects of your life. So coping better with stress will help you have better relationships, better sleep and an improved mood.
How we achieve a sense of wellbeing is down to us. We need to do things in life to enhance it. Things like walking in the park to connect with nature, taking regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, enjoying family life, supporting & giving back to our community, having a work-life balance.
Complementary therapies, such as Reflexology, help us cope with any imbalances and the stresses of everyday life. Regular treatments support you in achieving a sense of wellbeing by melting away stress and tension, aiding sleep and improving your mood. By making time for a regular treatment you are taking control of your health & wellbeing and helping your body to release stress and cope better with ill health.
