gentle bodywork

Reflexology is a gentle form of bodywork based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands and outer ears which correspond to all parts of the body and each body system. Reflexology offers a holistic approach to wellness. Applying gentle pressure to the reflex points of the feet, hands and ears creates a stimulus at the nerve endings and reduces tension in other areas of the body through the nerve pathways. Breaking down tension in the body eliminates toxins, reduces pain and allows the body to heal itself.

whole health

In each session the intention is to treat the whole person. By following the reflexology maps on the feet, hands and ears each body part and body system can be accessed creating a systemic response and overall relaxation. Releasing congestion or stress in the nervous system can help to restore and balance the body's energy.

benefits of reflexology

Reflexology works powerfully to decrease stress, increase circulation and soothe the nervous system. Research has shown reflexology to be beneficial in reducing symptoms related to headaches, asthma, cancer treatment, premenstrual syndrome, depression, anxiety, and both acute and chronic pain.

Pressure techniques, stretching and movement of the feet during a reflexology session can also correct imbalances through over or under-stimulation of the reflexes, enabling natural reflexology to take place.
