A deeply relaxed state is attained ideally during the treatment. In this state, the function of the nervous system shifts mainly into its optimal parasympathetic (involuntary) mode.  When the body is in this state of relaxation, it has the ability to re-establish its balance and consequently its self-healing potential to reach internal peace and balance. Therefore, it can be highly effective in reducing stress and pain throughout the body.



The art of Reflexology dates back to 5,000 years ago. It’s believed its roots are in Egypt and then later to Asia.  It has ties to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Observations were made when stimulating the feet whicegypt reflexology IIIh brought about positive changes in the body.  By the late 19th century, ‘Zone Therapy’ explored more details of the map of the body represented on the areas of the feet. Further research was done in the U.S. by doctors in the early 20th century, mapping out the reflex points over the years, and it was named Reflexology.


The principal is that every part, gland and organ of the body is mirrored on the hands and feet. Reflexology is the physical act of applying pressure to the feet with specific finger, thumb and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion on the feet, with a premise that such work affects a physical change in the body.

There are approximately 7,200 nerve endings on the bottom of each foot, which have connections through the sciatic nerve to the spinal cord and brain. When using the specific massage techniques on all sides of both feet, Reflexologists are breaking up the uric and lactic acid crystals deposits in the feet. The ‘crystals’ are released into the bloodstream and eliminated through the urinary system. This is why clients are encouraged to drink lots of water on the day of the treatments.  This release relieves the congestion in the body and the body functions flow smoothly, ultimately allowing the body systems to achieve refined internal peace and balance.

With this induced relaxation and reduced stress, several things occur that enable stimulation to the different systems of the body. It slows down the heart rate, reduces blood pressure, increases blood flow to the muscles and decreases muscle tension.



The systems of the body entail their own organs, glands or parts that work in conjunction with each system.  During, and following, a reflexology session, these systems (Skeletal, Nervous, Respitory, Degestive, Muscular, Circulatory, Endocrine, Immune, Lumphatic,  Reproductive and Urinary)  work more in balance with each other. The increased circulation of every part of the body allows for better networking between the systems.

We do not diagnose. We are merely facilitators of the movement of energy, understanding that the better the movement of energy is in the body, the better position it is to heal.
