Foot reflexology is best used as an adjacent method to acupuncture. The two methods complement each other and provide relief for a variety of disorders.
What is foot reflexology?
Foot reflexology is an ancient form of natural healing. This technique places varying degrees of hand or finger pressure on specific areas of your feet. These areas are known as reflex points and correspond to all the organs, glands, and parts of your body. By applying correct stimulation to these reflex areas, our reflexologists clear energy blockages to alleviate stress and tension throughout the entire body. This creates a deep feeling of relaxation and helps revitalize your health and wellbeing.
How can foot reflexology help you?
When used with acupuncture, foot reflexology has shown to provide relief for a wide array of disorders. A total of 170 studies from 21 countries conclude that reflexology is most beneficial for:
- Improving blood circulation
- Inducing relaxation and improving stress response
- Reducing pain
- Helping digestive disorders
- Easing pregnancy and post-partum symptoms
- Providing pain and tightness relief for plantar fasciitis
Chronic conditions also seem to respond well to reflexology. Over 300 studies in China have shown over 60 illnesses were improved by reflexology.
What do reflexologists do?
When you come in for a free, no-obligation consultation, your certified practitioner will assess you by asking questions about your health history. Using these assessment tools, they will work with you to put together a treatment plan. During treatment, you will need to remove your shoes and socks as your reflexologist will use pressure, stretching, and movement to work through both feet. Specific work on reflex points is integrated with relaxation techniques to create a soothing effect. Pressure is adjusted according to your preference and patient feedback is an important part of every session.
