Foot and hand reflexology are both common ways to help release tension, improve circulation and eliminate toxins. If you suffer from diabetes, neuropathy and other circulation problems reflexology can be of great benefit.
Foot problems are very common in people with diabetes and can lead to serious complications. For facts about how diabetes affects your feet and what you can so to keep your feet healthy contact the Canadian Diabetic Association for additional information.

Diabetes and your feet
Diabetes affects the circulation and immune system, which in turn impairs your body’s ability to heal itself. Over time, diabetes can damage sensory nerves (this as known as “neuropathy”), especially in the hands and feet. As a result, people with diabetes are less likely to feel a foot injury, such as a blister or cut. Unnoticed and untreated, even small foot injuries can quickly become infected, potentially leading to serious complications.
