*Foot Reflexology (*denotes chair)
Reflexology is an alternative and complementary medicine involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. The theory of reflexology is based on the idea that reflex areas and points correspond to specific areas of the body. Through manipulating these reflex areas and points, one can improve health by balancing one's qi (physical life-force).
The Reflexology sessions offered at VCA include a gentle foot massage along with activation work of qi through stimulating reflex points on the feet. There are reflex points that correspond to every single part of the human body. We customize each treatment according to our client's individual needs.
Studies show that a series of reflexology sessions can assist in increasing circulation, lowering blood pressure, reducing pain, anxiety, assist digestion issues, headaches, and provide relief from back, hip, and joint pain, to name a few. The ultimate purpose of reflexology therapy is to promote wellness and return the body to homeostasis.
