What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a natural therapy that reduces bodily tension and brings about deep relaxation, which improves health and vitality. Through the relaxation process, reflexology facilitates the body's own natural healing mechanisms.

Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the hands and feet that correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Reflexes will feel sore to the touch when there is an imbalance, or health issue, in the corresponding part of the body. This unique therapy utilizes specific thumb, finger and hand techniques to apply gentle pressure to these reflex areas. Overtime, with the application of reflexology, the soreness in the reflexes often subsides and with it the associated health problem.

Reflexology has been shown to improve poor circulation, thus increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to cells and speeding the elimination of waste products. Reflexology releases endorphins and has been found to be very helpful in alleviating and managing pain.

Tools are never utilized only the practitioner's hands are used.

Reflexology works primarily through the nervous system by stimulating the nerves found in the feet and hands. Stimulating these reflex areas relaxes tension, which helps normalize physiological functions and bring about improved health.

Reflexology is a natural way to relieve stress, promote healing, improve vitality, and maintain better health.

Reflexologists do not diagnose medical disorders, treat medical conditions, nor prescribe or adjust medications.
