“Reflexology balances and enhances the body’s remarkable ability to repair itself.”
“ONCE DISCOVERED, NEVER FORGOTTEN !"
• Promotes balance and normalization of the body naturally.
• Reduces stress and induces relaxation.
• Improves circulation.
Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary modality involving thumb and finger techniques to apply alternating pressure to reflexes shown on reflex maps of the body located on the feet, hands, and outer ears.
Modern Reflexology is based on the work of two American physicians, Dr. William Fitzgerald and Dr. Joe Shelby Riley of the 1920's and on that of physiotherapist Eunice D. Ingham who developed Fitzgerald and Riley’s knowledge into a usable therapy, calling it hand and foot Reflexology and took it to the public in the late 1930's through the early 70's. Dr. Nogier, of France, discovered the outer ear map in 1957 (auricular therapy).
We have over 7,200 nerve endings on the soles of our feet, making them quite sensitive and responsive to the sensory input of reflexology.
If you are stressed, overworked, or injured, a reflexologist can send a calm and intentional message to the nervous system through a skilled touch to the feet. Your nervous system is designed to respond to new input. Reflexology uses specific touch techniques on complete reflex maps of the feet, hands, and outer ears, which not only help the muscular, circulatory, and lymphatic systems, but also profoundly affects the inside of the body, such as everything inside the head, neck, chest, and abdomen. In reflexology, only footwear is removed, with the client otherwise staying fully clothed.
Treatments are one hour long and include:
• Warm herbal footbath
• Stimulation of reflex points for the:
Central Nervous System
Skeletal and Muscular System
Many of our health problems can be linked to stress. It is an acknowledged fact by the medical community that a body trying to function while under the influence of prolonged stress is less capable of organizing its defenses against illnesses and repairing damage caused by injury. Stress can be mentally, emotionally, physically, or environmentally induced. Reflexology gently creates order, harmony, and balance with the body.
By nourishing mental health and physical vitality, reflexology can help release tension and maintain balance in meeting the demands and stresses of daily life. Give the gift of reflexology. Call today to schedule an appointment for you or your loved ones.
