Introducing our new Certified Reflexologist!
Reflexology is a holistic method of applying alternating pressure on reflex points using a thumb and finger technique. There is reason to believe that the entire body is connected through reflexes to areas of the feet, hands, and outer ear. The Egyptians made pictographs inside tombs displaying techniques of reflexology. It originated from ancient Egypt, China, and India. It spread throughout the world. some interesting facts about this history is showed that Marco Polo translated a Chinese massage book to spread it through Europe. Dr. Fitzgerald, “Father of Reflexology” started it in the United States. He was a ENT who worked at Boston City Hospital. He used pressure as a numbing method. Then Dr. Shelby Riley continued with Fitzgerald’s findings adding more researched results with Zone therapy. Then Eunice Ingham “Mother of Modern Reflexology” : who was a student of Riley evolved the maps and work on the feet. She is famous for the modern methods used now.
There is so many benefits with doing reflexology. Our world is now made up of constant stress, processed food, quick changes, instability, and chronic illnesses.

Frequently Asked Questions?
How old should you be to do reflexology? Any age, it is a noninvasive safe method of healing. I have worked on a 2 year old client and an 86 year old client with a broad range in between
How often should you have sessions? Depending on whether you have chronic conditions, age, each client is different. shouldn’t be seen more than twice a week for chronic conditions and can be seen monthly for regular functioning.
Will it hurt? or tickle? The pressure and technique used surprisingly doesn’t hurt of tickle. You may have tender spots where it needs to have some extra care to help unblock the congestion. You will be amazed with the feeling.
Please be kind and courteous if you cant make your appointment give me a 24 hour notice. I ask that you don’t wear perfume, oils, and lotions to the session. If you have any open sores of the feet, broken bones of the feet or a fever I will not be able to work on you at that time. Please let me know of any problems you may have or questions. If you have allergies, new symptoms, pain, or questions let me know before the session begins. If during the session you feel something tell me. I can work on it to release the congestion. At the end, I can answer questions for you, but I can not diagnose anything, only give suggestions. Hope to see you soon. I enjoy helping you feel good. Happy Feet makes a Happy Person!
