This treatment method is based on a theory that each of the named body parts are connected to other body systems and organs. Our massage therapists who provide this service are referred to as reflexologists in our industry.
With this treatment, we have found that the application of pressure to these areas of your body will provide several health benefits.

The Roots of Reflexology
Reflexology dates back to ancient Chinese medicine and is based on the belief of qi (“chee”). This is vital energy that is believed to flow through every person. When you feel stressed, your body begins to block your qi. This results in an imbalance in your body that often results in serious health issues and illnesses. With reflexology, it is possible to “realign your qi.” This realignment and opening of the blockages that have occurred can be mitigated, helping to keep your body energized and disease-free.
According to Chinese medicine, various parts of your body correspond with the pressure points on your body. Our reflexologists will use these points as a map to help determine where they need to apply pressure to help with what is ailing you.
