OFFERING REFLEXOLOGY IN ST. ALBERT!

I have been practicing Reflexology since 1995

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a non-invasive therapy, which is wholistic in nature. Wholistic therapy is a general term meaning treatment that is therapy for the individuals' body, mind and personal energy field.  Reflexology treats the whole being on various levels. The principles of Reflexology are grounded in a knowledge base that dates to thousands of years, including ancient Egypt and China.

Essentially, the feet and hands are treated according to a knowledge base that includes the therapists understanding of how the energy in our bodies moves in zones, much like the meridians of  acupressure and acupuncture.

What can this therapy treatment do for you

One theory behind reflexology ( and the one that resonates with me) is that areas of the foot corresponds to organs and tissue systems in the body, via energy (chi) channels.  Pressure applied to certain points on the foot may reduce pain and energy blockage in a corresponding organ or tissue along the zone in which the pressure point originates from. Added benefits are helping alleviate psychological symptoms such as stress and anxiety, which in turn can enhance relaxation and sleep.

Reflexology helps to balance all of the body systems, stimulating an under active area and calming an overactive one.  It is harmless to those areas functioning correctly.  Since all body systems are closely interrelated, anything that affects one part will ultimately affect the whole.

 

What is the process?

On your first visit we will discuss what you wish to get out of your therapy. For example, you may discuss relevant information regarding injuries, stress, sleep disorder, illness or disease. Problem areas are noted and treatment begins.  The treatment is painless and quite comforting and most people fall into deep relaxation or even sleep. 

Your treatment is typically 45 mins as a stand alone, or incorporated into your 90 minute massage upon request.

Reflexology is not massage, it is a completely different modality
