The Power of Reflexology
As a Health Coach I’m always looking for ways to help facilitate healing in the body so I chose reflexology as a great service to offer to my clients.
As an Integrative Health Coach, I believe in using a whole-body approach to healing. I strongly believe the body heals from the inside out & when given half a chance the body can heal itself by itself. By using specific types of steady, even pressure, reflexology techniques can directly affect the nervous system in a very positive, relaxing way. When the body is relaxed and the nervous system is stimulated, causing all the systems of the body to function more efficiently and therefore healing has an opportunity to take place.
Reflexology vs. Massage
Although I incorporate some massage techniques in with reflexology for overall relaxation & balance, reflexology and massage are different in their approach. Though both are beneficial in bringing about calm & healing in the body, massage focuses on the manipulation of soft tissues over all the body while reflexology is a targeted technique that is generally applied to the hands or feet and uses the application of pressure to specific reflex zones that are believed to be connected to other parts of your body, which brings about deep relaxation, stimulates the nervous system, improves lymphatic drainage and blood circulation which in turn relieves the effects of stress and helps your body find balance and heal itself.
Here are just a few ways Reflexology is beneficial:
Reduces Stress and Induces Deep Relaxation
Cleanses the body of toxins and impurities
Balances the whole system
Reflexology revitalizes energy
Is preventive health care
Stimulates creativity and productivity
How does Reflexology work?
Since ancient times, healers have employed various methodologies to strengthen and balance the energy flow. Many of the systems, including acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu, and reflexology, agree that this energy flows in zone or meridians throughout the body. Through reflexology, energy pathways are opened up, order and harmony are restored, the body becomes balanced & the body returns to its natural rhythms. The body, mind, and spirit are brought back into balance.
Hand and Foot Reflexology
I offer both Hand and Foot Reflexology and also incorporate the use of Essential Oils, lotions, and creams, as well as, relaxing music, all based on your preferences. I will listen to you and tailor your session specific to your needs. Reflexology sessions can be scheduled as individual sessions; hand or foot or do both for an ultimate experience!
Hand Reflexology is a great service for someone who is shorter on time or has an aversion to their feet being touched. Though foot reflexology is generally felt to access more nerves and create more relaxation, more circulation,
balance etc., hand reflexology is effective in targeting the same reflex zones and promoting relaxation, improved circulation & promoting healing in the body. A Hand Reflexology session lasts about 30 minutes. $35
Foot Reflexology is a great service for someone looking for a more thorough and intensive session. There are thought to be more nerves in the feet which would serve to create more healing approach as you get deeper relaxation, more improved circulation, more lymphatic flow,
promoting more balance, harmony and healing in the body. A Foot Reflexology session lasts about 45 minutes. $45
Or, if you are looking for the ultimate experience, you can schedule both! You can schedule an amazing 75-minute ultimate reflexology session, for a total relaxation and healing experience. $75
I am certified in both Hand and Foot reflexology and a member of the Complimentary Therapists Accredited Association. I am excited to offer this as a service for my clients!

Reflexology Targeted Sessions:
Hormone Balance is a 60-minute session specifically targeted to help support hormonal balance, stress reduction, relaxation, stimulating circulation, calming the central nervous
system, stimulating the immune system, and promoting an overall sense of well-being and improved mood. Reflexology is noted as one of the most sought after & effective treatment methods for supporting hormonal balance in the body. $65
Plantar Fasciitis is a 60-minute intensive session that specifically works to relax and lengthen the fascia, improve blood flow & circulation to the inflamed fascial bands and tissues, and is beneficial because it stretches and
relieves heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis. During this special massage treatment, ligaments and muscles of the foot are relaxed and loosened, in addition to the calf muscles. The entire lower leg and foot experiences increased circulation, muscle relief and improved flexibility. Those who routinely go for a reflexology session generally experience less pain in the foot, heel and lower leg and are better able to maintain full flexibility when doing daily activities. $65

of mind and less anxiety and helps to improve mood and promote an overall sense of well-being. $65
Digestive Health: Mommas and Grandmas of years ago have often utilized reflexology to help aid their children’s health in the area of digestion. Reflexology is a natural digestive aid that
stimulates all the components of the digestive system from top to “bottom” and encourages those parts to work in better harmony with each other and in some cases to wake up and start moving! Reflexology is relaxing and that allows your internal organs to breathe and be able to work. Reflexology can be a great natural remedy for digestion problems! $65
Improve Sleep and Relaxation: Lack of sleep has serious effects on our brain's ability to function and many people sleep very lightly during restless nights, which
can impair cognitive function the next day, make concentration more difficult and shorten the attention span. Reflexology can help the body to relax and respond by releasing chemicals and brain signals to slow down muscles and organs and increase blood flow to the brain. This can lower the production of stress hormones, calm the central nervous system, & allow your body to be able to deeply relax & help to promote improved sleep. $65
During my sessions I also incorporate the use of essential oils, music, affirmations, or guided meditations to provide you the most enjoyable, health
promoting, relaxing session I can!
