Reflexology is just a good foot massage. It’s true that reflexology will feel good – no, more than good – like a foot massage can.
However, there’s more going on than that. The deeper intent of reflexology is to restore homeostasis elsewhere in the body by establishing a relaxation response.
Massage affects anatomy (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and bony skeleton) through direct manipulation of those tissues; reflexology, through the nervous system, relaxes both the anatomy and physiology (the operating systems of the body: the organs and glands). A relaxed operating system functions better.
So, reflexology is MORE than just a good foot rub!

Our work is so much more than a foot rub. This simple ancient art/science has shown me incredible results working with a variety of maladies that have nothing to do with the feet of my clients. On the other hand I have helped a number of folks with plantar fasciitis, so yes it does help the feet as well, but it goes so much deeper and beyond that. Educating others through outreach is important work for us. Thank you Karen for your continued effort to that end.

Your welcome John. I LOVE what I do, as do you, so it’s a pleasure.
