Utilizing gentle, therapeutic touch, this session promotes the healing process by restoring balance to your physical, energetic and emotional systems.

Deeply relaxing and therapeutic for both physical and emotional well-being.

 

Reflexology

Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers to stimulate more than 7,200 nerve endings

in each foot. These nerve endings correspond to all parts of the body, including organs and glands.

 Working on specific points in the hands and feet, stress and tension melt from the body;

 circulation and lymphatic flow are improved; and nerve impulse pathways can be unblocked.

These benefits all work toward helping the body to heal itself by restoring balance to the vital energies.

Hands & Feet Sole-utions

helps to stimulate circulation, skin renewal, and relaxation.  Your hands and feet have never been so happy!
