This technique is specifically used on hands, feet, and ears and has effects on the whole body.

Upon completion of techniques, the hand, foot or ear will be gently rubbed or stroked to relieve any stress.

What is Reflexology in Moon Twp?

Reflexology is an ancient technique. There are Egyptian tomb paintings depicting reflexology and it is documented in the Vedic texts of India which date back over 5,000 years. Modern Reflexology dates back to 1902 when Dr. William Fitzgerald introduced it as “Zone Therapy”. Echoing the Chinese philosophy of meridians, or energy channels, Fitzgerald theorized that the body’s energy flowed along channels ending in reflex points in the feet and hands. He found that because all parts of the body are linked by these channels, pressing one area could produce an anesthetic or healing effect on another. Physiotherapist Eunice Ingham took his theories further by maintaining that all parts of the body, including the internal organs, could be treated by manipulating points on the feet alone.

By stimulating relevant reflexology points, the therapist eases tension, dissolves blockages and boosts the circulation of energy, blood and lymph to and from the organs. The congestion sometimes feels like granular crystals underneath the skin, which is broken down and dispersed. The point may feel sensitive afterwards ranging from mildly tingling to more tender. Afterwards, the feeling ranges from feeling exhilarated like running a marathon to crawling into bed and taking a long and deep nap, both are excellent results! As reflexology also stimulates toxic elimination there may be a need to urinate more during the day or have extra perspiration. Most people feel the full benefits the day after treatment.
