“Your feet walk upon the earth and through this,
your spirit is connected to the universe. Our feet
are our contact with the Earth and the energies
that flow through it."

Jenny Wallace, Bear Clan, Cherokee Indian


China, India and Egypt practiced reflexology thousands of years ago. The oldest documentation dates back to Egypt 2,500 BC. Reflexology is a focused pressure technique directed at the feet (or hands) based on zones and reflexes that correspond to parts, organs & glands of the entire body.

When the reflexes are stimulated, the body's natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones. Manipulating specific reflexes removes stress, activating a parasympathetic response (body activity slows down into rest and repair mode, having an overall calming effect, heart rate slows, peristalsis action, bile secretions, insulin and digestive juices are stimulated, peripheral blood vessels are dilated, bronchioles are contracted, as are the pupils and oesophagus). With stress removed and circulation enhanced, the body can return to a state of homeostasis - the "automatic" process that the body incorporates to bring it back to equilibrium.

While you are having a treatment, your practitioner may find a tender point on your foot. A tender spot on the foot may indicate congestion in a corresponding part of your body. When a trained reflexologist stimulates these tender points, the congestion is broken up, allowing the energy to flow freely. The congestion is actually blocked energy which may interfere with your body's natural flow of energy. The treatment leaves you feeling relaxed, refreshed and energized with a renewed sense of well-being.

Reflexology can be done on anyone practically anywhere. It is for people of all ages, from the newborn to the elderly, for a general tune-up or for an unhealthy body trying to return to health.

The vast majority of people usually realize the benefits of reducing stress which in turn minimizes physical symptoms. Reflexology in conjunction with other forms of therapies complements ongoing medical treatments.

  • Creates deep relaxation and removes stress.
  • Enhances the body's circulation.
  • Assists the body to normalize metabolism.
  • Complements other healing modalities.
  • Releases the body's natural ability to heal itself.
  • Is a good and safe preventative healthcare.

Through regular reflexology treatments, you will be able to eliminate many symptoms and causes of illness and pain.

Reflexologists do not diagnose unless qualified to do so, nor do they prescribe medications unless qualified to do so. The therapeutic intervention is limited to "working the reflexes" and "assessing a tender reflex."

Please note that this is a complementary therapy and not a replacement for medical treatment.
