What is Reflexology?


Reflexology is a deeply relaxing, non-intrusive, holistic healing practice based on the theory that different points or reflexes on the feet, hands, or ears correspond with different parts of the body. Using the fingers and thumbs to apply various levels of pressure and/or movement to these reflexes, a reflexologist may assist clients in returning their bodies to homeostasis (the body's natural harmonious state), and thus assist them in their healing. 

Foot Reading

Each foot contains more than 7,500 nerve endings which inform the body to warp, shift, or change based on internal and external stimuliFoot Reading focuses on the internal stimuli. It is a method of foot assessment which categorizes the foot into zones, much like Reflexology, and allows a deeper assessment of the feet by incorporating the mental and emotional aspects of life and their influence on the body. For example, you can have headaches for physical reasons like injury, but you can also have headaches for non-physical reasons, such as emotional stress. 

When the mind perceives pain of any type -- even anticipated, the body reacts in kind. Foot Reading is an ample translator between the mind and body.
