Reflexology is an ancient healing art and science. The earliest known documentation of the practice of reflexology was an inscription and image found in Egypt dating 2330 B.C.
Reflexology is different from a foot massage. Reflexology involves stimulating specific points on your hands, feet or ears that correspond to the organs and zones in your body. Areas of tenderness and altered texture reveal where there may be stress or imbalance in the body. By applying reflexology to these areas, congestion is released along the numerous nerve endings in the feet, for example, which then allows the energy in your body to flow freely. The body is better able to function optimally and return to homeostasis.
Most importantly, reflexology induces the relaxation response. Seventy percent of dis-ease processes are stress related. Reflexology is a safe, non-invasive way to bring Ma'at (balance) back to your being and to support the life force.
During your session, I can work on either your feet, hands or ears. I also provide Integrated Reflexology which combines the hands, feet and ears in one session. It's your choice. An Integrated Reflexology session is a profoundly relaxing experience and often produces better results.
