Fancy Feet

Reflexology is so much more than just a foot rub. It is a 6,000-year-old healing art based on stimulating reflex points on the feet, hands and ears that correspond to different parts of the body.

The art of Reflexology is known for its ability to quickly relieve stress, harmonize the body and increase immunity — all overwhelmingly important factors for people in all phases of life. Take the human foot for example, it is a marvel made up of 26 bones, 33 joints and over 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments. More specifically, on each foot there are over 7,000 nerve endings that connect to all parts of the body. Good results relating to pain relief, muscle relaxation, improved digestive processes, amped up circulation and lymphatic flow can be obtained very quickly. Kneading the soft fleshy ball of the foot, pulling on the toes, tracing around the heel and pushing deep into the arch are just a few of the many small, intense movements you’ll experience during a reflexology treatment. Best of all you can do it at home. Happy feet are just a foot rub away!
