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

specific issues

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.


Jade River is fortunate to have Karen Martin as a Reflexologist and Reiki Practitioner.
