Reflexology, an integrative health practice, maps a reflection of the body predominately on the feet, hands and outer ears. It uses unique manual techniques to deliver pressure to neural pathways assisting the body 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.

♥ Traditional Thai Reflexology is a session for the lower legs, knees and feet that marries elements of reflexology, Chinese Tuina massage, Japanese acupressure and Indian yoga. The sequence of movements offered in Traditional Thai Reflexology will both energize and relax you, creating an experience unlike any 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. $93
Please note: wear long pants (or shorts) that can be rolled up to allow access to the knees.
♥ 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. A soothing hand Reflexology session 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 their hands and wrists. We will begin with a heated paraffin treatment to prepare the hands to benefit the most from a targeted reflexology session. 70 minutes. $93

♥ Reflexology Lymph Drainage is a remarkable evidence-based protocol that focuses on stimulating lymphatic drainage. Funded research on the efficacy of the foot reflexology protocol, the foundations of which are based on Manual Lymph Drainage and Simple Lymph Drainage, was directed toward women suffering from breast cancer-related lymphoedema.
