Body and Cranio-Sacral Reflexology
Reflexology is the application of pressure to various targeted points (reflexes) of the hands, soles of the feet, and head. Each pressure point corresponds to a part or organ of the body. The pressure applied sends a message to the central nervous system which redirects the stimulation to the targeted organ or body part to help it function as well as possible. These techniques trigger a relaxation response throughout the body. Reflexology promotes good health, promotes relaxation, relieves pain, prevents disease, and improves the quality of life. Through the application of pressure to these targeted points (reflexes), reflexology therapy can help manage many common conditions such as:
• musculoskeletal pain
• insomnia• anxiety
• hormonal and digestive issues to name a few
Reflexology is non-invasive. You don’t have to take your clothes off and she treats the whole body.
