Health is the proper relationship the microcosm, which is man
and the macrocosm, which is the universe. Disease is a disruption of this relationship. Dr. Yeshe Donden, Physician to the Dalai Lama
Reflexology is more than 5000 years old and is based on the understanding that there are certain regions of the body which mirror or reflect the entire organism. These areas include the feet, hands, tongue and ears. All the body's organs are reflected like a hologram. Through stimulation of these areas with massage and finger pressure we can impact the entire body. Foot Zoning is the same concept.
I work the feet using a combination of reflexology, acupressure and massage techniques to open the meridian pathways. For those who so desire I can also utilize acupuncture. Through stimulation of these areas with massage, acupressure points and opening of the flow of the meridian pathways the health of the entire being is improved including improved circulatory and lymphatic flow, pain reduction, boosting of immunity, reducing anxiety and depression.
Practitioners vary in how much pressure they use. I stay within the comfort zone of the client. This therapy is very relaxing and can be done in almost any setting. It is extremely beneficial for stress and augmenting the effects of other modalities. Both hand and foot sessions are available.
