Today's Reflexology is based upon Physiotherapist Eunice D. Ingram's map of foot reflexes. These reflex points correspond to all the organs and systems of the body. A deep state of relaxation, facilitating the balancing of all the bodies' functions results from applying specific pressures to the reflex points. Reflexology also promotes improved circulation and detoxification via its stimulation to the nervous system and other energy systems such as acupuncture meridians. It is beneficial in managing stress induced and chronic conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, headaches/migraines, pms/menopause and other fertility issues, lower back pain, arthritis, digestive and circulatory issues and more.
Prenatal & Postnatal Massage
Childbearing comes with many accelerated changes to a women's body physically, hormonally and emotionally. Massage during and after pregnancy is beneficial in facilitating stress reduction, pain relief, increased circulation, reduced swelling and improved sleep. It also promotes shorter and less painful labor, restoration of your pre-pregnancy shape and less postpartum depression. Receiving regular massage throughout pregnancy and postpartum recovery can ensure greater support for the nurturing of both mother and child.
