The Treatment Reflexology is a gentle complimentary therapeutic treatment. It can be applied to the feet and the hands. The area is cleaned and then pressure is applied by the therapist onto reflex points. The reflexology is applied using the therapist's hands to the client's bare feet or hands. The treatment is a holistic healing technique that aims to induce a state of balance and harmony in body, mind and spirit.
For each person, the application and the effect of the therapy is very unique.
Our standard treatments lengths are 20 and 30 minutes long. Hand treatments are given seated at a table so that the arms can rest comfortably on it. Foot reflexology treatments can be given on a couch or a low reflexology foot stool.
Reflexology is based on the belief that there are reflex areas on the feet (and hands) corresponding to all the parts of the body including major organs. It is believed that the blockage of the energy field, known as Qi (pronounced ch-ee) or, invisible life force, can prevent healing.
The therapist works on the reflex points by applying pressure to the feet with thumb and fingers to stimulate these organs and systems through the reflexes.
This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself. Reflexology has been shown to be bring relief to a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions and can help to maintain health and general well-being.
