Foot Massage & Reflexology
Our bodies are amazingly resilient,continuously adapting to physical, mental and emotional challenges. Every minute of every day your body's systems work together to create the subtle adjustments needed for good health. We have over 7000 nerve endings on the soles of our feet. This makes them quite sensitive and responsive to the sensory input of reflexology.
By using skillful pressure to specific points in the feet, a reflexologist joins in the silent dialogue within you body.
Reflexology feels good, but it is much more than a good foot massage. For either preventive care or in response to health challenges, reflexology supports balance comfort and healing, it has been shown to improve circulation. Circulation carries oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and carries wastes away.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints.
When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles.
