What is a Reflexology Session Like? 

 

You are in a softly lit room with soothing music, you lie comfortably, quietly on a massage table, with only your shoes and stockings removed. As essential oils are applied to your feet with relaxing strokes by Stephanie Tsanas , our Certified Reflexologist, you begin to reach a relaxed state. Your feet receive a light rubdown and specific reflexology pressure and movements are applied to the reflexes in your feet .
 Every area and system in your body starts to relax, and begins to heal.

What is Reflexology?

 Reflexology is a therapeutic touch treatment used to facilitate healing,
 improve circulation, promote relaxation and release tension from the body.
Reflexology is a science based on the principle that reflexes in the hands and feet 
that correspond to all the glands, organs and parts of the body.

 The feet, therefore, are a mirror image of the entire body.
 When the specific reflex points are properly worked by a trained Reflexologist,
the corresponding body part receives benefits.

Is Reflexology New?

 

TheThe Pharaoh is saying"Please do not hurt me;
   and the  Physician is saying "I will work so you will praise me."

The d
ate is 2330 B.C.The hieroglyphic shows hand and foot reflexology.

The art
of Reflexology is an ancient healing technique over 5000 years old.  The first written reference to reflexology was found on the wall painting in the tomb of Ankhmahor (highest official after the Pharaoh of Egypt, at Saqqara, Egypt and is known as the Physician's tomb.   

  

                                 Reflexology as we know it today was first researched and developed by Eunice Ingham, the pioneer in this field. Her first book, "Stories the Feet Can Tell" was published in 1938. 
Her nephew, Dwight C. Byers, continues here work as Director of theInternational Institute of Reflexology. http://www.reflexology-usa.net/
The Ingham Method of Reflexology is the standard on a worldwide scale. 
  

 

                                          Is Reflexology Massage?  

 
No. Both Reflexology and massage improve circulation and relax muscles, but only Reflexology works on all the body's systems. And Reflexology uses different finger and thumb techniques.  Reflexology also works on the energy fields of the body.

Reflexology and massage are two different modalities that involve the use of the hands to apply their techniques. They both have the purpose to enhance the well being of the client, but they are different from each other.  
Definitions -- Reflexology is the application of specific pressure to reflex points on the hands and feet.--Massage is the systematic scientific manipulation of soft tissues of the body
  

 

                            Can Reflexology Make a Condition Worse?  

 No. It will not make any condition more acute. Reflexology helps nature to normalize body functions. You may experience a health reaction after a session, for example, a runny nose, slight headache, bowel movements, etc, that may only last for a day.  This is your body cleaning out the toxins that have been released by the session. A series of Reflexology sessions relaxes the stress that can affect your health.  It is a safe, effective way to better health.            

                    Who can have a Reflexology Session?

 Because Reflexology is a gentle but effective treatment, anyone can have a session-- Small babies, children, pregnant women, the elderly, the sick, and anyone who is stressed.  It has been used in hospice care and in the treatment of the terminally ill to help bring a little relaxation to them.
