While most people think that reflexology is just another word for foot massage, it is in fact much more than that.
Beyond the feel-good effects of the treatment, the practice and purpose go deeper than the skin and muscles by taking specific reflex points on the foot to induce a healing response in corresponding organs and areas of the body.
Kneading the soft fleshy ball of the foot, pulling on the toes, tracing around the heel and pushing deep into the arch are just a few of the many small, intense movements you’ll experience during a reflexology treatment. Addressing anything from headaches to sinus problems to stomach issues, if sensitivity or tenderness is experienced when certain areas of the foot are stimulated, it usually indicates bodily weaknesses or imbalances within the corresponding organ.
With repeated practice of applying pressure and manipulating nerve endings (traditionally in the foot), reflexology can help to clear any channels of blocked energy through moving the flow of blood, nutrients and nerve impulses to ultimately improve overall health and balance. In addition to manipulating the pressure points on the foot, reflexologists sometimes work on the hands or ears to trigger relaxation as well.
Chinese Body Massage
Chinese body massages are traditionally done over the clothes and in a reclining chair. The chairs are designed and built for maximum comfort and relaxation during the reflexology segment and transform into a full massage beds during the body massage portion of your session. Chinese body massages are perfect for realignment and readjustment from the day to day hustle.
If you have any pain or discomfort from sitting behind a computer for too long or your early morning workout, the body massage will release the tension in your body and get your ready for whatever daily task you may have.
