Reflexology

Therapy that works from “the inside out” to stimulate the nervous system and release tension

 

Reflexology is a therapy based on the principle that specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears correspond to specific muscle groups or organs of the body…essentially providing a “map” of the rest of the body.

 

This alternative, complementary therapy uses gentle application of appropriate pressure to zones and reflex areas in the feet and hands to produce a positive effect elsewhere in the body. For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder point. When a reflexology practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it affects bladder functioning.

 

Another example holds that the base of the little toe represents the ear, or the ball of the foot representing the lung. Through the application of pressure on particular areas of the hands or feet, reflexology is said to promote benefits such as the relaxation of tension, improvement of circulation, and support of normalized function in the related area in the body.

 

Although reflexology is not used to diagnose, treat or cure health problems, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing other health conditions. Reflexology is highly recommended as a complementary therapy that may work hand-in-hand with some of our other services to relieve stress and facilitate the path to better overall health.

 

During your visit, you can expect our practitioner to practice gentle thumb, finger and hand techniques to supply alternating pressure to locations on the feet, hands, and ears, as indicated by a reflex map. Look forward to a deeply relaxing and therapeutic session in the care of our professional team. Your comfort is always our top priority, and we look forward to helping you decide if reflexology is right for you.
