What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflex points in the head, feet, and hands which correspond to all areas of the body.

What happens in a Reflexology treatment?
Reflexology is a gentle application of pressure without the use of oils or lotions, starting at the head and face, then the feet, and ending with the hands.

What are the benefits of Reflexology

  • Mind and body relaxation
  • Balance the body to promote homeostasis
  • Improve circulation of the blood, lymph, and energy
  • Improve immune function
  • Maintain and promote health

Reasons to have Reflexology

  • To improve sleep
  • To improve immunity
  • To increase circulation
  • To decrease stress
  • To maintain good health
  • To help sore, tired and achy feet

Reflexology is perfect for anyone who is overworked or overstressed. Reflexology allows the sympathetic nervous system or “fight or flight” to disengage, which lets the parasympathetic nervous system or “rest and digest” take over. Reflexology is a great way to give your body the relaxation it needs.
