Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to specific areas of the feet, hands and head that correspond with areas of the body to induce clearing of energy blocks as well as to remove toxins from the internal organs. It is deeply relaxing and will encourage your body to slip into a state of relaxation that will help facilitate the natural healing process of your body.
Reflexology can benefit conditions such as plantar fasciitis, relief of sinus pressure from common colds, releasing of tension in neck, back and shoulders due to everyday work stresses, as well as relieving mental stress and allowing the mind to unwind and slow down.
The purpose of Reflexology is to promote healing by stimulating the body’s nervous system to encourage the flow of blood. Therefore, in the process, it not only subdues the sensation of pain but also alleviates the source of pain as well.
Research has shown that one condition that benefits greatly from a consistent course of treatments is fibromyalgia.
The treatments can help quell any number of chronic bowel syndromes associated with the condition. Frequent brief sessions can also help reduce the muscle pain that is associated with fibromyalgia.

* Athletes foot * Bruising on the feet * On Medication for a serious medical condition * Cuts, grazes, open skin, rashes, bites, burns, fractures * Among others. Your practitioner will go through a medical history to ensure the treatment is safe.
