What’s the #1 Question Clients Ask Me About Reflexology?

Posted on August 13, 2012

What can Reflexology tell me about my health? 

I hear this question a lot.

Throughout your Reflexology session I assess any stress cues your feet may have and evaluate them to come up with a personalized treatment plan.

Stress cues show how your feet adapt to stress and this reflects stress in other parts of your body. For example, adaptation is shown with visual signs such as callouses, knobby toes, or a bunion. Additional indications of stress are sensitivity to technique application and change in tissue texture.

This assessment allows me to target areas of stress and design a session specific to your individual needs. By focusing on any areas of imbalance, your body can move immediately toward homeostasis.

Research shows that a single Reflexology session creates relaxation, reduces anxiety, diminishes pain, improves blood flow, and decreases high blood pressure.

So getting a Reflexology session is a valuable addition to your wellness. (Though remember, as a Reflexologist, I don’t diagnose or prescribe!) Ready to book a session?

Article on Reiki in the Chicago Tribune

Posted on July 3, 2012

The Chicago Tribune takes a look at Reiki and other integrative therapies, describing how they work, and how they might support specific health conditions. It’s a good article, though I wish the author understood that Reiki is more far-reaching in its benefits that being just condition specific. That’s a hard one for conventional medicine. You can read the full article here.
