Reflexology can help increase circulation, thereby preventing a sluggish blood flow that could result in clotting. The relaxation aspect can help prevent high blood pressure, angina, heart attacks and strokes.
The circulatory system is responsible for transporting materials throughout the body. It conveys nutrients, water and oxygen to the billions of body cells, and carries away waste such as carbon dioxide. Blood is the body’s fuel and is delivered by the circulatory system-it is like a postal system throughout the body, delivering essential nutrients and oxygen to power the cells while taking away debris.
The heart is really a special muscle and is the circulatory system’s engine, pumping blood around the body. It is usually located a little to the left of the middle of your chest, and is about the size of a fist.
The right side of the heart receives blood from the body and pumps it to the lungs, a process known as pulmonary circulation. The left side does the exact opposite: it receives blood from the lungs and pumps it out of the body, a process known as systemic circulation.
