Our Treat Your Feet Signature Foot Massages uses reflexology techniques to give you a great massage, and heal your body. Just like the name, reflexology uses the many, tiny reflex areas in your hands and feet to generate healing within throughout the rest of the body. Reflexology was widely used in ancient China, where it is a cornerstone of Chinese Traditional Medicine today.
Your Treat Your Feet Reflexology massage, will indeed relax you, but will aim to increase circulation throughout your body to ease any conditions or problems in your body. Since a reflexology foot massage only deals with your feet, you’re able to stay fully clothed the entire time!
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is an alternative treatment that uses specific touch technique of applying pressure, using your thumb and fingers, to reflex points of the feet and hands. Each foot has over 7,200 nerve endings (reflexes), 26 bones, 107 ligaments, and 19 muscles. A typical treatment includes applying pressure to specific reflex points that have relations to each and every organ and all parts of the body. This type of therapy creates a physiological change in the body by naturally improving your circulation, which reduces your body tension.
Reflexology may seem similar to a massage, but the approach is very different. A massage works on the specific muscles that the therapist touches, with the approach to relax the individual and heal injury or stress by reducing tension. Reflexology works by applying a very specific amount of pressure to a very specific spot on the hand or foot. There is great attention to detail in a reflexology foot massage, because of the many reflex areas and points on the feet and hands.
