Reflexology is a science/holistic therapy. It is an ancient healing modality that works on the concept that there are reflexes or points on the feet and hands that relate to every organ, gland, and part of the body. A compression technique using the thumb and forefinger is used to connect to these points to the body.
Our bodies are amazingly resilient, continuously adapting to life's physical and emotional challenges. Through every minute of every day the different systems of the body communicate and work together to create the subtle adjustments that result in a healthy condition.
Through the skillful application of pressure to specific points in the feet, a reflexologist joins in the silent dialogue within your body. Practiced in diverse cultures for centuries, reflexology is much more than a good foot massage. For either preventative care or in response to physical or emotional distress, reflexology has been observed to create physical changes that can bring about balance, ease and healing.
Therapists will rehabilitate and stimulate natural healing processes in connective tissues and organ systems using manual soft tissue massage, joint physics, elongation techniques, and manipulation of joint capsules. Our key skill is the ability to isolate and identify the exact site of soft tissue dysfunction. Other clinical applications of heat, cold, light therapy, electrotherapy, liniments and compresses are used as well. Surgical draping is used to assure patient modesty and provide a sense of security for both the patient and the therapist.
