Something's Afoot Reflexology
Reflexology is a type of bodywork performed on the feet. It is based on the science that all your nerves begin or end in your feet. These nerves also called Reflex Points, directly correlate to another part of your body or body system. Through the application of firm but gentle pressure, using specific thumb and finger techniques, reflexology works with the peripheral nerves and encourages the body to relax. It promotes the reduction of stress and reinforces the body's ability to stay healthy.
At your first session you will be asked to fill out a medical intake form which I will go over with you. You will be asked to remove only your shoes and socks and will be in a reclined or lying position for the session. An oil such as coconut, grape seed or jojoba may be used. Please let me know if you have any allergies. A firm pressure will be applied to your feet. It should not be painful, however, you may have tender points on your feet which I will work on and hopefully by the end of the session the sensitivity will be better. The first session generally lasts about 60 minutes. Subsequent sessions are 45 minutes.
Reiki is commonly translated from the Japanese to mean universal life energy. It is believed that a person's energy or "ki" should be strong and free flowing. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it can lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance. A Reiki session can help ease tension and reduce stress which can then help the body to facilitate healing on all levels - emotional, mental and physical.
A session consists of the fully clothed client lying on a massage table or reclining in a chair. Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The practitioner places their hands slightly above the client's body in a series of hand positions. Each position is held for 3 to 5 minutes. A session can last from 30 - 60 minutes.
Experiences vary from client to client. Some feel a wonderful heat that flows through and surrounds them, others may fall asleep or feel like they are in a deep meditative state. Usually deep relaxation is felt by all.
