‘Reflexology is recognized worldwide by numerous national and international health institutions as an effective, distinct complementary practice within the field of holistic health.
It’s non-invasive, as you remain clothed, and involves the use of thumb and finger techniques to apply alternating pressure to reflexes–which correspond to all parts of the body–located on the feet, hands, face, and ears. Reflexologists stimulate the complex neural pathways linking body systems, supporting the body’s efforts to function optimally.
How is Reflexology different from Massage?
- Reflexology is non-invasive, i.e., you remain clothed. Only the feet, hands, and face are exposed, so you can feel safe and secure throughout the session
- You remain on your back throughout a Reflexology session, maintaining the flow of the session, so you can completely relax (and often fall asleep!)
- Reflexology is time-efficient because there is no undressing/dressing or showering
- Massage works through the musculature of the entire body, using methods of stroking to restore metabolic balance within the soft tissue. Reflexology employs fine thumb and finger techniques on specific reflex points on the feet, hands, face, and ears that can affect all parts of the body, including internal organs and glands.
- Reflexology works predominantly through the nervous system, utilizing subtle energy pathways to optimize how your body functions. Energy pathways are opened up, order and harmony are restored. Your body returns to its natural rhythms as your body, mind, and spirit are brought back into balance.
