Reflexology is a centuries old practice that is still popular today. The benefits of reflexology are numerous. With more than 7,000 nerves in the feet waiting to be stimulated, you will find that reflexology is very powerful and extremely pleasurable.
Reflexology promotes deep relaxation, reduces stress and tension, improves circulation and optimizes body function. It stimulates the body's natural healing processes and generally has a revitalizing effect on the entire system.
Acupressure is another ancient practice that uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body. These points follow specific channels, know as meridians - which are the same channels used in acupuncture.
During treatment there is elongation of the muscle fibers, which contributes to the release of toxins and waste materials within the tissues, and an increase in the circulation of oxygenated blood, thereby promoting cellular nutrition and stronger resistance to disease.
Acupressure helps to re-balance the body, promoting a reduction in emotional and psychological tensions. Acupressure can also be used to help treat many conditions including muscular aches, sinus congestion, headaches, menstrual difficulties, and discomforts associated with pregnancy and labor.
Massages can provide therapeutic relief to people of all ages and different walks of life, from the very athletic, to the business person, to the home maker.
Massage therapy is drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach to wellness based on the body's natural ability to heal itself.
A massage can address a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension. Massage may additionally offer certain benefits in treating high blood pressure, lower back pain, post-operative care, arthritis and depression.
