No one really knows how or why it works, but many rely on reflexology to recover and maintain their health.
Reflexology is the stimulation of specific points mostly on the feet, but also hands, or ears in order to affect the whole body and therefore various organs, glands or structures in the body. This enhances the body’s own natural healing processes for strength and balance.
Our feet carry enormous pressure through the day and could use some maintenance care through a reflexology session, or set of sessions depending on what is going on in the body. The feet can carry tension and often pain. Tender points alert to problem areas and are addressed within client’s pressure wishes. The whole foot is addressed to bolster the unison of the body systems, helping the immune system and encouraging a sense of vitality and wellness.
Only a small percentage of massage clients come in for pampering, relaxation massages. Most come in for medical complaints: back pain, muscle spasms, sports injuries, migraines, fibromyalgia, and rehabilitation after surgery, etc.
Many times Doctors will suggest massage for hypertension and high blood pressure. But some people choose reflexology or energywork in tandem with conventional medicine to support the body through critical care, when the body cannot handle a full massage.
Reflexology is easy to do over a lunch break, as it is only a 30-minute treatment, and doesn’t require disrobing. Reflexology often requires a commitment of several treatments, especially if there have been serious health issues. Ask for package deals!
