Reflexology Therapy, Foot Reflexology, Hand Reflexology

Reflexology is a healing art based on the principle that the whole of the body is reflected in the feet, hands, cranium and ears through nerve pathways, reflex points/zones, and meridian lines. By pressing and manipulating these reflex points, the corresponding body part receives stimulation, extra blood flow, oxygen and energy, allowing the body to seek its own balance and continue on with its natural task of self-healing. Foot and Hand Reflexology are the more common forms within this modality.

Reflexology is centuries old and is regaining wide acceptance as a healing art today. Reflexology can be used as a preventative measure, keeping the body tuned up; for relaxation; and to promote general well being. It can also bring relief to the symptoms of allergies and sinusitis, lung congestion, digestive and elimination discomforts; it can enhance blood and lymph flow, stimulate the endocrine system; boost the immune system; and help the body relax, relieving other areas of stiffness and pain. Chronic and acute conditions, including asthma, hypertension, headaches and colds can also be alleviated with regular treatments.

Although the terms are often used interchangeably, Reflexology is not a foot massage. Massage does not address the individual reflex points. Reflexology is more specific and precise. However, massage has its own benefits, bringing blood flow to the feet and body and feeling wonderful, thereby resulting in therapeutic relaxation. Massage is incorporated into a treatment session.
