Reflexology, sometimes called “zone therapy”, is a highly specialized type of massage. Applying different amounts of pressure to the feet, hands and ears. It’s based around the concept that these body parts are connected to certain organs and the skeletal system via meridians or energy lines. The reflexology offered at Yoga Heart focuses on work with the feet. There are over 7,000 nerve 'endings' in each foot and by applying pressure to specific points, the corresponding parts of the body are activated to heal. Various studies have shown how reflexology: boosts the immune system helps overcome colds and bacterial infections clears up sinus issues prompts recovery from back problems corrects hormonal imbalances boosts fertility improves digestion eases arthritic pain reduces stress and anxiety, enhances relaxation and better sleep Anecdotal evidence indicates it is a far-reaching therapy that can effectively treat many human ailments and diseases, used as a complementary therapy or practiced on its own. What Is a Typical Session Like? A typical treatment lasts for 60 minutes and begins with a health history form and consultation about your health and lifestyle. This information helps to customize your therapy. You will then be asked to remove your shoes and socks and sit comfortably in a chair or massage table. The reflexologist will assess the feet and stimulate various points to identify possible problem areas which may be tender or tense. Movements, like rubbing, stretching and pin point pressure application in certain areas of the feet, are used to stimulate blood flow throughout the body and specifically to the areas that are in need of special attention.
