Reflexology has been a part of Eastern medicine for thousands of years, with evidence dating back as early as 2330 B.C. Over time, its popularity in the Western world and its inclusion in insurance plans have been increasing. While some of the relaxation benefits are the same, reflexology is quite different from massage. Massage is the palpation of muscle tissue, whereas reflexology is the stimulation of nerve pathways.
This holistic modality is based on the theory that all the major glands and organs in our body are reflected in our feet, hands and ears (just to name a few!). By using specific thumb and finger techniques, reflexologists stimulate sensory nerves which send optimizing signals to your brain. Think of it like a reboot of your internal computer. It returns your body back to a state of balance where it can naturally treat and heal itself.
So what can reflexology do for you? A lot. Each session is guaranteed to reduce tension, improve circulation, promote relaxation and bring your body back into balance. Not to mention, focus on some of the most overused and under-appreciated parts of our body! You will leave your appointment feeling so much lighter and relaxed. In fact, clients will often fall asleep during their session. Honestly, it’ll be the best nap you’ll ever have!
Regular sessions of 1-2 a month can help maintain your health over time and improve upon chronic conditions. If you suffer from arthritis, poor circulation, low energy, headaches, allergies, inflammation, chronic pain, digestive issues or stress, reflexology may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
