Foot Reflexology is a blissfully relaxing therapy that treats the feet and hands in order to balance the whole body. This treatment works on the principle that each of our body systems is mapped out on to our feet. By stimulating the corresponding areas or reflexes it is possible to alleviate health problems and bring the body and mind into balance.
A Reflexology treatment stimulates the body’s own energy system to clear blocks and stagnant energy to revitalize and nourish the whole body from head to toe. It prompts the body to help heal itself by balancing and toning the organs and internal systems, helping flush toxins out of the body and revitalizing the immune system.
You will lie fully clothed on the couch with your shoes and socks removed while the treatment takes place. It is not unusual to feel so deeply relaxed that you fall asleep!
The Benefits of Reflexology can be experienced with the following problems:
- Digestive disorders
- Hormonal imbalances, PMT, painful periods
- Stress-related conditions
- Tired feet
- Lack of circulation
- Lack of energy
… and so much more!
You or your loved one do not have to have a problem to benefit from a treatment – you can have a Reflexology treatment for the pleasure of having a relaxing session or just time to yourself. It’s a great form of care for elders/seniors too!
Take relaxation to the next level and try Hot Stone Foot Reflexology! This is an incredibly indulgent treatment which enhances the benefits of a conventional reflexology. As the name implies, the treatment involves using smooth hot basalt volcanic stones on the feet to relax the body at its depest level. The heat brings about physiological and psychological changes, promoting a meditative state and influences the internal energy flow, bringing balance to the body and mind.
As a precursor to the treatment, hot stones are placed on areas of the body, to warm the tissues, to dilate blood vessels and get blood and oxygen flowing into tense areas. The stones’ heat can produce powerful and dramatic results when they are placed on certain key areas of the body (Chakra lines/points, and acupuncture meridians among them).
Hot Stone Reflexology combines the benefits of reflexology treatment with hot stone therapy for a deeply relaxing experience. It is estimated that one stroke of a hot stone is worth five strokes with the hand! It is also believed to yield five times deeper and five times longer lasting effects compared to reflexology alone. Stones are firstly used to massage the lower legs relieving any tension in the calf muscles and helping to enhance energy flow. Smaller stones are then used to work the reflex areas and points of the feet. The heat from the stones quickly opens the reflex pathways bringing deeper level of relaxation than conventional reflexology.
