BENEFITS OF REFLEXOLOGY

According to the Mayo Clinic reflexology is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress. Studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REFLEXOLOGY AND FOOT MASSAGE
Many people confuse Reflexology with Massage. There are many differences between these two modalities – each having its own strengths, application, and techniques for example. Massage is performed to the soft tissues of the body. Reflexology is performed only the feet, hands or ears. Reflexology is a science based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet, hands and ears, which correspond to all glands, organs, parts and systems of the body. The physical act of applying pressure using the thumb, finger and hand techniques to these areas results in the reduction of stress which promotes physiological changes in the body.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET REFLEXOLOGY？
Frequency of visits depends on your health and wellness goals. Clients with chronic conditions can benefit from bi-weekly or weekly sessions. Monthly visits can help keep stress in check and build immunity. Weekly to every other week is common to average. But there is nothing keeping you from maximizing your relaxation and coming as often as you like.

From start to finish, this was a wonderful treat! I was greeted warmly at the door and escorted back to the massage area. Very relaxing environment. First a foot soak and neck and shoulder massage. Then lie back in a very comfy recliner and what happened next was nothing short of perfection. Lilly is well trained in reflexology and worked out all the knots and kinks. I feel like a new person! I’m going back next week. ❤
