Reflexology is a way of activating the healing powers of the body by working on the hands, feet or ears.
We know that the ancient Chinese, Japanese, Indians and Egyptians worked on the feet to promote good health. Today many of these same techniques have been developed into a modern method called reflexology. What joins the ancients and the moderns is the long established principle that there are energy zones or energy nerve receptors that run throughout the entire body. These are reflected in a specific mapping of reflex areas on hands, feet and ears corresponding with all major organs, glands and body parts.
Modern reflexology is both an art and a science. As a science, it requires study, knowledge of techniques and practical skill. As an art, the practitioner works with a focused intention and an intuitive sense with touch.

The body is self-healing. The reflexologist acts as a catalyst to stimulate the body’s subtle energy flows. Using the practitioner’s hands with various techniques and pressure, the reflexes are activated to promote the natural internal healing mechanisms to do their own work.
The feet provide a foundation by which the body sets its posture. When the feet are misaligned due to calluses, bunions, hammertoes, surgeries and other deformities, the body is forced to compensate by creating a domino effect of misaligned ankles, knees, hips etc. A foot assessment and footwear discussion may be included. Exercises for hands, feet or ears may be given to support the healing process and gain results sooner.
