What is Reflexology?

Foot ReflexologyReflexology is a science and art. Reflex points (colloquially referred to as pressure points) on the feet, hands, and ears represent the body in miniature. The nerve pathways in each foot create an electrochemical flow that communicates with the entire nervous system.

The principle is these reflex points and areas, meridian pathways, and chakra regions connect with a specific organ, gland or body part. Through the application of pressure using specific thumb and finger techniques, reflexology works with the peripheral nervous system and encourages the body to relax. It promotes the reduction of stress, reinforcing the body’s ability to stay healthy and vital. As the body relaxes and decompresses from daily pressure, it allows the body to function properly. This encourages wellness through empowerment, education, relaxation, and homeostasis.

Every age needs Reflexology for –

For relaxation! If you have never had a  session, the relaxation that comes from a healing session is incredible! After a one hour session, many clients feel as though they had an entire night of sleep. Your body will thank you.

For stress relief! If you were anxious and stressed before you came in for a session, you would leave in a state of harmony; and, in most cases, your worries will be less intensified. How does this happen? One of the wonders of reflexology is that by working the points for all organs, glands, spine and back reflexes, endorphins are created and stress just melts away. Most clients fall asleep during a healing session. Before you know it, many good nights’ sleep will be within your grasp.

For moving toxins! If you experience heartburn, digestion and constipation, reflexology therapy will support your digestive system, liver, kidney and spleen to encourage the elimination of toxins.

For building up immunity! When that cold or virus comes looking for you, there is a good chance that the bug will bypass you with regular Reflexology. If you have a strong immune foundation, you will have a good opportunity of fighting off invasive pathogens.

For a feeling of well-being and balance! Reflexology helps to quiet the brain and eliminate the constant worries. After a session, everyone loves the way they feel: balanced and peaceful. Who doesn’t want to feel at ease and well? Reflexology will help keep all of your bodily and mental faculties in check.
