During our day-to-day life we don’t stop and think about how important a role our peripheral nerves – the nerves that send important messages to our brain like how cold our feet are – play.
Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the peripheral nerves.
Damage to these nerves causes weakness, numbness, sharp shooting, jabbing, throbbing, freezing or burning pain which is felt mainly in the feet and hands.
Peripheral neuropathy can be caused from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes and exposure to toxins.

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common causes.
Reflexology helps peripheral neuropathy with pain relief, improves blood and lymph circulation and improves nerve supply in the feet and body.
Reflexology also relaxes the muscles of the feet that often have trapped the nerves in the feet. Reflexology gently activates the damaged nerve fibres to send and receive correct nerve signals.
By working the reflex points in the feet information is sent and received through the central nervous system.
Research shows using reflexology for peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, phantom limb pain and other forms of neuropathic pain, may benefit people who are suffering from the effects of such conditions.
