Reflexology involves the application of various pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques, and without the use of oil or lotion. Based on a system of ten zones and reflex areas on the hands and feet that correlate with larger areas of the body, Reflexology directly effects physical changes and improvements through manipulations of circulation pathways. It is believed Reflexology is effective because the pressure applied to the nerve sends a signal to the brain, which in turn, sends the message of relaxation and/or decrease of pain to the body part.
Reflexology is primarily encouraged for stress and pain relief, and is an especially attractive option for those that feel uncomfortable removing clothing or are entirely new to massage. During your initial consultation, our trained Reflexologists can assess and then address a variety of conditions such as anxiety, asthma, cardiovascular issues, headaches, and even sinusitis. It’s a great way to start, and continue, your journey toward lower stress and improved health.
