Foot reflexology is a traditional, natural, and holistic self-care modality that has, in one form or another, been practiced for thousands of years in cultures all over the world.
Our feet are home to many important acupressure points, energetic pathways, fascial tissues and tens of thousands of nerve endings. Using gentle-to-deep pressure and other techniques to relax and activate these points, we encourage our entire system to unwind, relax, and rest within its natural state of balance and harmony.
Foot reflexology treatments help us to let go of accumulated physical, emotional, and mental tension and activate our parasympathetic nervous system, which encourages restoration and detoxification throughout our entire body. This ability of foot reflexology to help us relax deeply has been proven beneficial for almost any recovery process and can aid in the relief of many issues.
Stepping back, we see the feet as the foundation for our entire lives, and that through the feet we ‘feel grounded’, ‘stabilized’, and ‘rooted’ on the earth and in the present moment. Our feet also carry ‘the ways in which we’ve learned to walk in the world’, and underlie every pattern/habit in the body. By giving care and attention to the feet with these qualities in mind, we can bring relaxation, relief, stability and balance to our inner world as well our outer one.
And, of course, foot reflexology treatments simply feel good, and are an excellent way to treat yourself or a loved one to something special.
