What is Reflexology
Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive therapy that supports the body's ability to heal itself. By using specific hand techniques, alternating pressure and friction are applied to various reflex points throughout the feet and hands. These reflex points correspond to all of the body systems, glands, organs, muscles and nerves.
The stimulation of these reflex points produces physiological changes and because reflexology works through the nervous system it also is extremely effective in reducing stress and tension. Stress weakens the immune system, reflexology reduces stress. Reducing stress is one of the best preventative measures you can take concerning your health.
Already a popular form of healthcare in many other countries, awareness of reflexology is rapidly expanding in the United States. Though it is not yet accepted by most insurance policies, reflexology is recognized as a Complementary and Alternative Medicine by the National Institutes of Health under the umbrella of manipulative and body-based therapies.

What to Expect
You only need to remove your socks and shoes as only your feet will be exposed throughout the session. Wear comfortable clothing and pants that can be rolled up to above the ankle if needed. You then lie on a massage table or a zero gravity chair with your legs and feet comfortably elevated. Soft music, an eye pillow, and warm towels for the feet are provided to help achieve complete relaxation during the reflexology session. Many people fall asleep during a session and feel refreshed upon waking. Experience the benefits of reflexology today!

About the Reflexologist
My professional career started in the corporate world and after severe burnout began seeking an alternative career path to regain some balance back into my life. I discovered reflexology out of curiosity and attending the Baltimore School of Reflexology in 2013. The first class got me hooked and the more I researched and studied reflexology, knew it was a modality I wanted to pursue and to help others.
