Wellness Massage

Massage, reflexology, acupressure and  acupuncture have a common origin and modality.  They all use the concept of stimulating pressure points in various locations of the body to relieve stress and to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.  This concept of using pressure on various parts of the body dates back to as early as those that practiced acupressure in China over 2000 years ago.

Foot Reflexology:   

Foot Reflexology Map

Foot reflexology focusses on the pressure points in the feet. These can be the actual locations of discomfort, may be associated with “meridians” (energy lines) through the body, or may be the projections of the other anatomical parts of the body.  The ear and hand are other major reflexology massage areas. Benefits of reflexology include improved sleep patterns and blood circulation, reduced anxiety and stress, increased relaxation of tense muscles and reduction of pain in affected areas.
