Reflexology and Reiki
Michelle is a Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist and specializes in therapeutic foot reflexology. These treatments work by stimulating the nerves in the feet, sending important signals to the brain which in turn sends a message to the corresponding part of the body. This prompts the body to start its natural healing process.
‘Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands, and ears, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body.’ Reflexology Association of Canada.
Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps to promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.’
Reflexology treatments aide in assisting clients deal with a variety of conditions; Anxiety, depression, insomnia, IBS, hypertension, plantar fasciitis, migraines, back and other pain, weight loss, adrenal fatigue, stress related conditions, menstrual cramps, fertility issues etc.
Many clients have reported an increase in energy and improved sleep and an overall feeling of well being. Some say they feel light on their feet and more balanced.
What to expect during a treatment
Reflexology is a non-invasive treatment. Clients remain fully clothed except for their socks and sit reclined in a zero gravity chair or lie on a massage table.
The reflexology therapist will apply pressure to bottoms, sides and top of feet using the RAC sequence, which stimulates every corresponding part of the body. Though some reflexes on the feet can be tender, this treatment is relaxing and calming. When your body is relaxed, natural healing takes place.
