Specifically, foot reflexology.
With reflexology, you can not only influence the state of internal organs and their function but through direct communication with the nervous system relax the entire muscular skeletal system.
The most recent massage research has shown that it is not our physical manipulation of muscles that relaxes them, but the communication that occurs between the muscles and the nervous system. It is the nervous system that gives command to the muscles and indeed all parts of the body to relax.
And that is where reflexology shines!
Reflexology is amazing at relaxing – digestion, breathing, the muscular skeletal system, and importantly our restless minds and rollercoaster emotions. It does so through unique manual techniques that deliver pressure to our neural pathways, which in turn assists the body to function optimally.
Working on the feet, you can maintain six feet of distance (or close to, depending on the height of your client) while offering the benefits of reflexology and massage!
People are hungry for touch and relaxation right now, at the same time that fear prevents many from disrobing for a massage and having a therapist breathing close to their heads (mask or no mask – vaccinated or not). People’s systems have suffered undue trauma this last year; you can provide relief and restoration and maintain safety for all. You just have to learn how – something you can do in just one weekend.
I invite you to spend two days receiving foot reflexology yourself and learning how you can give a full-body experience to those seeking respite. I will be in Venice, Florida on May 22 and 23. Please join us!
