The human body is a truly amazing instrument; one of the most extraordinary things about the human body is the way the reflexes provide seemingly unrelated "cause/effect" results in other parts of the body. Reflexology is the process of applying pressing or massaging different Longitudinal Zones on each side of the body in order to stimulate the flow of blood and nutrients to other areas. Applying just the right 'touch' to the feet, hands, or ears with a specific amount of pressure and with a particular digit can yield truly amazing physical results. Manipulating specific zones of the body can affect the function of parts on the other end. With the body divided into 10 equal vertical zones (five on either side), with Reflexology, I can positively affect the whole body using this series of defined and applied points of pressure.
The Reflexology treatment starts a refreshing peppermint and willow foot scrub to soften the skin and awaken your tired, sore feet. Following the scrub, I will apply an aromatic Spearmint Foot Masque from Akileine. This product contains relaxing, soothing, and refreshing plant extracts including Calendula, Chamomile, Cornflower, St. John’s Wort, Linden, Cypress, Grape, Black Currant, and Butcher’s Broom. It also contains Spearmint and orange essential oils. The energizing Spearmint Foot Masque is perfect for simulating the nerves in the feet. While the mask set, the reflex points in the hands, head, and ears are massaged and held. After the mask is removed, there is about 30 to 40 minutes of massage and point work for the feet.
This Reflexology treatment will leave you blissful from head to toes.
It is now estimated that 75% of ailments, injuries, aches and pains are present due to stress, and Reflexology allows the body to release that stress, which contributes to repair, relief and healing.
Our daily routines take its toll on the body, and stress and anxiety often top the list of persistent offenders. The worst part about stress is that persistent feelings of tension or anxiety will compound the physical symptoms associated with the problem itself. Simply put, stress contributes to the buildup of unwanted acids in the muscles and throughout the entire body.
Improve Problem areas
The practice of Reflexology is effective because the pressure applied to the nerve sends a signal to the brain, which in turn, sends the message of relaxation and/or decrease of pain to the body part. It is also widely accepted that these 10 zones work together to provide a natural energy throughout the entire body. Through Reflexology, I can help you relax and lessen with a variety of conditions such as anxiety, asthma, cardiovascular issues, headaches, and even sinusitis. When pressure is placed on these key areas of the hands and feet, blockages causing these problems are broken down and removed from the body - the result is that you feel relief.
