GREAT NEWS !
Maureen-Stress Relief Reflexology now offers Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD). I had the privilege of training with the creator of this dynamic protocol this past fall in Vermont. Sally Kay is from the UK, she developed the RLD technique while working in a cancer clinic and teaches her method to Reflexologists all over the world. This is great news to anyone dealing with lymphedema after surgery or any other condition that causes inflammation/swelling such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, allergies, or pregnancy related edema. Don’t hesitate, call or text today to schedule an appointment that will help you feel your best!
Reflexology is both an art and a science of touch that addresses the whole person – mind, body and spirit. It is based on the premise that there are reflexes in the feet, hands, ears and face that correspond to every organ and system in the body. By stimulating these reflexes with specific thumb and finger techniques, the body can be brought into homeostasis or balance. This sets up the perfect environment for the body to heal. I invite you to join me on this wonderful journey of overall well-being.
Balance Your Chi
EAR & FACE REFLEXOLOGY
Both Ear and Face reflexology promote the healthy flow of energy throughout the body by stimulating acupressure points, meridians and ‘reflex’ areas. Fingers and palms are used to provide pressure and sweeping movements to stimulate specific points, tapping and vibration to relax the face and head, and rotations to soothe the nerves. Stimulation to these parts of the body is powerful because the pathways from the nerve cells to the brain stem is shortest.
An Ancient Science
Foot Reflexology is an ancient technique based on the principle of free and uninterrupted energy flow and helps activate the natural healing processes in each client's body to restore their physical and emotional well-being. In foot reflexology, the body is gently nudged to a balanced state by applying specific thumb and finger techniques to stimulate points and areas on the foot that represent organs, glands and systems in the body. There are nerve endings (over 7,000 in each foot) and energy meridians that are stimulated during a session resulting in a profoundly relaxing experience. Reflexology helps to reduce stress and anxiety and brings the body into balance.
The hands are a convenient alternative in situations where the feet might be injured, inaccessible or the client is just more comfortable with having the work done on their hands. Reflexology activates healing energy waves under the skin that travel through the body, invigorating and renewing connective tissue, and restoring supportive cells. Holding firm pressure on a reflex area causes it to heat up and this warmth triggers the release of endorphins, the neurochemicals that ease pain, thus bringing comfort to the body. Once pain is relieved, nerves will relax and the body can function peacefully.
