Holistic medicine is a broad range of medical practices that are based on many years of tradition. With a Reflexology treatment, your body and mind will feel free and clear of all worries and stressors that life places upon us. A Reflexology session will help to heal you both mentally and physically.
Reflexology is a 5000 year old art of stress reduction originating in China and Egypt. It is a natural system of relaxation based on the principle that the body is reflected on the feet and the application of pressure to this area promotes circulation, balance and relaxation in a holistic manner. Our bodies are comprised of vibrations of energy. It flows through the body, along pathways or meridians and it gathers in specialized energy centers or chakras. Illness can be a matter of congestion to one or more of these pathways or centers, causing a blockage of energy or impeding its flow through the body.
Reflexologists look to symptoms as clues to finding the underlying cause of congestion in the body. Reflexologists look to the feet to show stress, tension or congestive cues, which may be hampering the body's' own innate power of healing. Reflexology works to increase the circulation in the body physically and energetically. This increase in functioning allows the body to make the appropriate adjustments it needs in order to break up congestion and thus restore the balance and integrity of its many systems and organs, thereby allowing the body to heal itself. Although reflexology is not a substitute for traditional medicine, it is a wonderful complement to Western medicine. By alerting latent healing abilities within the body, reflexology assists in creating a healthy, harmonious state that is ideal for efficient functioning of the whole body: physical, mental and emotional.
