Our feet, hands and ears each reﬂect an entire map of the body. There are reﬂex points that correspond to all organs, systems and skeleton of the body. Reﬂexing these areas with small amounts of rhythmic pressure that include thumb and ﬁnger walking techniques, has a profoundly calming effect on the nervous system. This, in turn, gently nudges the entire body back to balance.
Stress can manifest in various ways and in various areas of the body. Reﬂexology triggers the body’s natural healing ability by reducing the stress that can decrease optimal functioning. Reﬂexology activates oxygen ﬂow to all cells. and stimulates the lymphatic system for increased immunity. There is a gentle release of toxins and impurities. It is safe and non invasive and therefore can be a complimentary care for a wide variety of health issues.
Clients report a wide range of beneﬁts including:
* Better quality of sleep, increased mental focus and energy
* Improvement in balance, mobility and in the health of feet and hands
* Decrease in pain
* In certain cases, support for vertigo, restless leg syndrome, depression and other
Reﬂexology is given with client fully clothed and tailored to support the whole body. Areas can be emphasized to support each client’s needs. Sessions can be given only on the feet and often combined with reﬂex points on hands and ears for expanded beneﬁts.
A ﬁrst session can be scheduled for 30 minutes to experience a sampling of Reﬂexology. 60 or 90 minutes sessions are most commonly scheduled. Reﬂexology and Reiki can also be combined.
