Reflexology – It’s In the Feet
Reflexology is a natural healing therapy for the whole body, and it may be the answer to your health problems – whether they’re chronic, you wish relief from stress and tension, or you want to feel pampered and cared for. It is an excellent way to acquire optimal health.
Imagine you’re entering a cloud, which becomes an oasis of peace and harmony. You’re made comfortable on a table with a cover for warmth. Soft, soothing music and a gentle aroma help to calm and relax you. Think positively, as positive thoughts about your health and life cause positive changes to occur in your body.
The session begins by massaging and working reflex points on your head with a gentle but firm touch. You can experience various sensations here, such as tingling or shivers. You start to feel your body relax and find it difficult to keep your eyes open. The whole head is worked – the skull, the face, the ears, the neck. By the end of this, you are feeling just wonderful! A lavender eye pillow is placed on your eyes (if you wish) to help you relax and to soothe away the cares of the day.
Moving on to your feet, a natural cleansing lotion is used before warm-ups – a number of twisting, rubbing movements. The toes are massaged along with the reflex points located here. The body’s energy, known as "Ch’i," travels along twelve main meridian pathways in the body. Six of these meridians, which relate to major organs including the bladder, kidney, gall bladder, and stomach are located in the toes. Massaging the toes helps clear blockages and encourages vital body energy to flow unimpeded. The feet are completely massaged with all reflex points correlating to any health condition you may have.
During the session, several changes happen to your body. Circulation is improved. Pain is relieved. The body’s functions begin to normalize. You enter a deep, almost euphoric state of relaxation. Tension and stress are eliminated. Your immune system is boosted. Toxins are removed. The treatment encourages the healing process to begin. When the body is relaxed, healing is possible.
Upon completion of "dessert," you may be either fast asleep, in an altered state of euphoria, or just resting comfortably, unable to believe how well you feel and that you should have tried this years ago!
