What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is not a massage but a focussed pressure technique based on the premise that there are reflexes in the feet that correlate to all of the parts, organs and glands of the body.  Working these reflexes removes stress, activating a parasympathetic response in the body, enabling blockages to be released.  This allows the body to return to “homeostasis” (balance).

What are the benefits of Reflexology?

Reflexology removes stress from the body, enhances circulation, and assists the body to normalize metabolism in a natural way.  A Reflexologist will treat the whole body by covering all of the reflexes in the feet but will pay extra attention to certain reflexes based on the clients’ needs.  Reflexology complements all other healing modalities and the effects of a session generally last about 5 days.  Reflexology does not require disrobing.

Who can benefit from Reflexology?

Everyone, from small children to the elderly, can benefit from a Reflexology session.  It is wonderful for people requiring a general tune-up or for those with health issues, including fibromyalgia, migraines, back pain, PMS, those undergoing chemotherapy or recovering from surgery, and so much more!

What can I expect from a session?

At your first session a health history will be completed, allowing me to assess how best to proceed with the session.  This information is, of course, kept strictly confidential.

Every session begins with a quick foot cleanse and examination to note any areas that may affect the session  ex.  painful bruises, corns, swelling.  The feet are then worked on one at a time, with the resting foot wrapped warmly and snuggly.

Once the session is in progress the client is encouraged to lay back quietly and relax, in order to gain the most benefits from the session.  If, however, the client experiences any tenderness in a reflex, he/she is asked to please communicate that so that it can be recorded and pressure can be adjusted.  In most cases, tenderness in a reflex indicates that it needs further work.

To maximize relaxation, the session will conclude with a brief foot massage. 

The whole session will take approximately 60-90 minutes.
