Reflexology is based on the theory that we have corresponding points on our feet, hands, and ears that connect to other parts of our bodies through our nerve pathways. By stimulating these specific points it may help decrease stress, increase relaxation, and promote an overall sense of peace and well-being in the mind, body, and spirit.
During a reflexology session, it is only necessary to remove shoes and socks. Those who may have concerns about your feet being ticklish or sensitive, don’t need to worry. After many years of experience, it has shown that by using the correct amount of pressure, most people are not ticklish at all. Different thumb and finger techniques will be used to apply pressure to either your hands, feet, and ears or a combination of all.
Benefits of Reflexology May Include
Decreased Anxiety & Stress, Relief from Pain & Tension, Enhanced Sleep Quality, Greater Energy, Reduced Fatigue, Improved Concentration and, Ease of Medication Dependency. Headache relief, overall balancing, relief from Neuropathy and Plantar Fasciitis. 30/60/90 Minute sessions are available.
Reflexology for Babies and Children
Parents will learn points to do at home! Infants and children are very open to receiving reflexology. Parents and caregivers will learn techniques either in a group setting or a one on one session, certain points to help kids ease headaches, bellyaches, coughs/colds, earaches, allergies, colic, digestion issues, and to help induce relaxation at bedtime. Children require much shorter sessions and usually respond quickly to a 20/30 minute session.
