Reflexology is a protocol of unique manual techniques applied to specific reflex areas predominantly on the feet and hands. These techniques stimulate the complex neural pathways linking body systems, supporting the body’s efforts to function optimally.
Authentic reflexology is not a massage! Unlike massage therapy, which addresses areas of complaint by directly manipulating the tissue, reflexology works on the hands and feet to shift the nervous system into a parasympathetic state (the only state in which the body can heal itself) so as to relieve muscular tension and pain and help to restore internal system imbalances.
Cultures all over the world practice their own styles of reflexology. My practice is centered on the conventional western style developed by Eunice Ingham, and the form practiced as part of Traditional Thai Medicine. My work is slow and deliberate, and delivered at a depth so comfortable you may fall asleep! Certification in aromatherapy qualifies me to safely use high-quality essential oils within my sessions.

♥ A deeply relaxing and profoundly healing Foot Reflexology session that begins with a luxurious soak in warm water infused with pure botanical oils, followed by a gentle invigorating exfoliation. In addition to the conventional style focused on reducing stress and balancing internal systems, I offer a session designed to address plantar fasciitis or fasciosis, peripheral neuropathy, and tarsal tunnel syndrome. Who knows, you may be walking on the solution to many of your problems! 70 minutes. $85
♥ Thai Foot Reflexology is a session for the lower legs and feet that marries elements of reflexology, Chinese Tuina massage, Japanese acupressure and Indian yoga. The sequence of movements offered in Thai foot reflexology both energizes and relaxes the recipient, creating an experience unlike any other western form of bodywork. Thai reflexology was developed about 2000 years ago and is still taught today in the temples by Buddhist monks and as part of Traditional Thai Medicine, the country’s primary system of healthcare. It is a unique and effective method of improving circulation, relieving stress, stimulating lymphatic drainage and improving joint flexibility. Beginning with a warm foot soak, the session lasts 70 minutes. $85
♥ A soothing Hand Reflexology session that begins with a warm soak in water infused with pure botanical oils, followed by a gentle exfoliation. When most people think of Reflexology they think “feet”. In truth though, reflexology can also be offered by way of the hands, and in some instances is even more effective. Hand reflexology is one of the safest and most nurturing sessions you can receive. In addition to the full-body benefits of reflexology, this session is a very practical one for people who use their hands a lot and/or experience discomfort in the hands and wrists. 70 minutes. $85
