World Reflexology Week - Sept. 24 - 30th
Experience Reflexology First-Hand: Trial Sessions September 26th!
Reflexology is one of the fastest growing therapies in North America, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). So much more than just a foot massage for sore feet, reflexology is a non-invasive, gentle therapy based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to every part of the body, including glands and organs. When acupressure is applied to specific reflex points, it helps to relieve tension in related areas of the body, encouraging the body to re-establish its natural balance.
During a reflexology session, the client's body goes into a deep state of relaxation, a state of ‘rest, digest and repair’, as opposed to the ‘flight or fight’ survival mode of hectic everyday life. The circulation of blood and lymph is stimulated, carrying vital oxygen to the cells and helping the body to get rid of waste and toxins. It is like receiving a massage of the inner body. After a reflexology treatment clients often report feeling re-energized, but also being able to sleep better. Many people with chronic or acute pain, or stress-related issues turn to reflexology for relief.
My journey with reflexology began many years ago, as a client. I was so thrilled with the results that I decided to become a reflexologist myself. I trained and certified in basic hand and foot reflexology with the Reflexology Association of Canada, Craniosacral Reflexology, Thai, and Holonomic Reflexology as well as Padhabyanga, an Ayurvedic lower leg massage.
I am still amazed, daily, how powerful reflexology therapy is. I help my client’s body re-establish its natural equilibrium, which is a prerequisite in order to remain healthy, and heal, if you are already dealing with an issue. It is such a simple approach, pressing “buttons” on the hands, feet or ears, yet the results speak for themselves: decreased pain, better digestion, a stronger immune system, improved circulation, decreased anxiety, improved sleep, better focus and concentration, a feeling of general well-being, just to name a few…
Clients are often surprised at how much better they feel - physically, mentally, and emotionally - after a session. In particular, they feel more grounded, yet have more energy. My clients include toddlers to people in their nineties, both relatively healthy people and those with chronic or critical illnesses. That is the best thing about this therapy: Everyone can benefit from reflexology. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to try reflexology and see what it can do for you!
