Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient technique which concentrates on the feet and hands. And although one mainly hears about reflexology in terms of applying pressure to the hands and feet, reflexology is based on the theory that all body parts, organs, and glands are associated with specific reflex zones or points located on the hands, feet, ears and surface of the skin. Pressure is applied to specific zones to induce relaxation, ease pain and increase circulation throughout the body.

Karen’s reflexology massage focuses on feet and hands and is designed to release tension and disharmony in the body. The intent is to release any blocked energy, “chi” or “prana” that may be blocked along the body’s energy pathways, known as meridians. Diminished or blocked energy my lead to “dis-ease” in the body. Enhancing the flow of the energy is purported to enhance the health of the individual.

The feet and hands contain several thousand nerve endings respectively. They are therefore very receptive to the stimulation of their many reflex points. Regular reflexology massages can help maintain the easy flow of energy throughout your body, stimulating and improving circulation, and promoting relaxation.

What to expect in a treatment session:

Each session will focus on the client’s specific needs. Although ultimately relaxing and rejuvenating, the client may experience some discomfort when pressure is applied to certain reflex points. This indicates that the corresponding area in the body needs the attention and the release of any blockage that may have built up there. Work on the reflex zones and specific points will provide an opportunity to get one’s energy following through the meridian system and allow for a release of toxins and therefore a release of tension.

After an initial foot bath, and warming up of the muscles, the treatment session begins. Pressure is applied to the reflex zones in the feet with the goal to allow the person’s chi to flow freely their body. After the work is completed on the feet, the practitioner moves on to the hands applying a similar method of massage and acupressure. The treatment ends with a relaxing head massage that leaves the client with a feeling of being rejuvenated.
