What Is Reflexology?


Reflexology is a safe, non-invasive, holistic treatment involving compression massage to reflex areas on the feet or hands, that correlate to all glands, organs, parts and systems of the body.  The physical act of applying pressure using thumb, finger and hand techniques to these reflex areas results in the reduction of stress which in turn, promotes physiological changes in the body.  During the session, the client remains fully clothed and removes only their shoes and socks.

Reflexology’s primary goal is to help release tension from the body.  It has been estimated that 75% of visits to primary care doctors are for stress-related problems.  Reflexology releases stress and helps our body return to its natural state of optimum health.

Some of the benefits of reflexology may also include:

  • promoting a feeling of deep relaxation
  • reducing stress and tension in the body
  • increasing lymphatic drainage and blood circulation
  • helping with digestion and elimination of waste and toxins
  • increasing nerve stimulation and blood supply to the body
  • stimulating endorphins in the body to promote natural healing
  • reducing muscle pain and tension
  • helping with PMS symptoms
  • Revitalizing tired feet

Reflexology is not intended to diagnose medical conditions or replace the care of a doctor.
