Aches & pains
Reflexology is a spa treatment where the therapist works on reflex points on your feet, hands, and ears that are thought to relate to specific organs and glands in the body.
stimulating those points with finger pressure promotes health in those organs and glands via the body's energetic pathways.
When done by a skilled practitioner, reflexology is a deeply relaxing treatment with benefits that can be felt throughout the body. The therapist will use various techniques that include holds, finger pressure, kneading, rotation and rubbing.
What to expect:
A typical treatment is 60 minutes long and begins with a consultation about your health and lifestyle.
During a Reflexology treatment the client is fully clothed except for shoes and socks. You will then sit comfortably in a reclining chair or on a massage table.
Lotion or oil may be used.
The Reflexologist will assess the feet and then stimulate various points to identify areas of tenderness or tension. The Reflexologist then uses brisk movements to warm the feet up. Then pressure is applied from the toes to the heel according to your comfort. Reflexology shouldn't be painful. If you feel discomfort, be sure to tell the Reflexologist. He or she should work within your comfort zone.
Some areas may be tender or sore, and the Reflexologist may spend extra time on these points. The soreness should decrease with pressure.
If you're ticklish, not to worry, the Reflexologist applies firm pressure to the feet.
