What is Reflexology?
Generally confused with foot massage, Reflexology is a very effective Complimentary Therapy, which works on the feet and hands to help the body to maintain its natural and healthy balance.
The theory of reflexology is to treat the body as a whole and not just the symptoms by applying specific pressure techniques that work on precise reflex points on the feet, based on the premise that every part of the body is reflected on the feet.
The pressure allows the release of blocked energy and built up toxins.
During treatment physical and mental tensions are released and relaxation is induced.
Some of the benefits of Reflexology:
- Stress reduction
- Pain relief
- Improved circulation
- Boost immunity
- Muscle relaxation
- Increased energy
- Maintain wellbeing
- Can also help with Anxiety, Depression, Digestive imbalances & Hormonal imbalances
For maximum results it is suggested to have 1 treatment per week for 5 to 6 consecutive weeks; then 1 treatment every 4 to 6 weeks for maintenance.
Some mild reactions can be experienced in the first 24 h after a Reflexology treatment these include:
- Increase urination
- More frequent bowel movement
- Pimples on the skin
- Increased perspiration
- Dizziness and nausea
But don’t worry, these are signs that your body has released toxins and is working on eliminating them. If you are concerned about any side effects, please contact your therapist.
Drinking plenty of water during this time will aid the toxins to flush from your body and speed up the healing process.
Reflexology is $65 for 45 minutes and $75 for 60 minutes.
