WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY
Reflexology is a holistic science using the feet as amini-map or microcosm of the body.
It is a natural,non-invasive treatment, stimulating reflex areas in the feet that correspond
to our organs, glands and body parts. The body has thousands of nerve endings in the feet
- approximately 7,200. By stimulating these reflex areas through a type of compression massage,
the therapist is able to clear energy channels and allow the body’s own healing energy to
flow unimpeded. The goal ofReflexology is to assist the body to return to a state of balance.

REFLEXOLOGY FOR HEADACHES AND MORE…
Reflexology is one of my favorite therapies. It is a non-invasive yet very powerful and
effective treatment. At least 78 percent of the adult population will experience a tension
headache at some point in their lives, 13 percent of the US population- or 29.5 million
Americans-suffer from debilitating migraines!
Headaches create, and intensify with physical and emotional stress, and they can affect
sleep, work performance,and appetite.
The time –proven art of reflexology, however , is one clinically proven remedy to relieve
the nagging pain headaches cause.
Our feet and hands are mini-maps of our whole body, organs and systems. When
pressure is applied to often tender points on a foot or hand, change takesplace in the
areas to which these reflexes correspond throughout the rest of the body.
Reflexology can be performed safely and effectively in situations where massage
and movement therapies are contraindicated. For example, immediately following
an accident, injury, stroke or surgery, the tissue in the head and neck may be inflamed,
bandaged, painful, or in a state of recovery.
The reflexive action of Reflexology offers a means to ease discomfort and support
the healing process to the injured area without touching it. It can also be used on people
that have had chemotherapy treatments due to cancer.
I had the opportunity to help my little sister when she was taking her chemotherapy
treatments for leukemia. Unfortunately I couldn’t help her to heal because it was too
advanced but I was able to ease the discomfort of nausea and headaches, side effects of
the chemo as well as the emotional feelings that she was experiencing too.
Reflexology can be used either alone or in conjunctionwith other body therapies to address
my clients’ issues with ease, comfort and care. When massage is contraindicated, reflexology
might be the answer.
