Reflexology, or zone therapy, involves the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on what reflexologists believe to be a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
Reflexology is one of the most used alternative therapies in Denmark. A national survey from 2005 showed that 21.4% of the Danish population had used reflexology at some point in life and 6.1% had used reflexology within the previous year
Norway showed that 5.6 % of the Norwegian population in 2007 had used reflexology within the last 12 months
Foot Reflexology 50 min $55 A gentle cleansing and exfoliating of the feet starts this relaxing and healing theapy. Reflexology is a gentle, noninvasive, totally holistic therapy based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to every organ, gland and part of the body. It is a whole body treatment – not just a foot massage. In a reflexology treatment, pressure is exerted on these reflexes by the thumbs and fingers, combining this with massage, relaxation and joint mobilization techniques. The result is complete balance in the body.
Hand and Foot Reflexology 90 min $80 Reflexology has been used since ancient times and is now starting to get the recognition it deserves. It seems that everyone loves to have their feet and hands rubbed! A Reflexology session is extremely relaxing and stimulating. Since the feet and hands are the only areas being addressed, there is never any need for removal of clothing. Reflexology can be used as a self healing art as well. It can be used to balance emotions, restore circulation throughout the physical body, and increase spiritual awareness. It may help improve concentration and the ability to meditate. Reflexology may relieve insomnia and help in lowering blood pressure.
Ear Reflexology and Scalp Massage 45 min $50 Like hand or foot reflexology, ear reflexology can be applied in situations where other forms of reflexology may not be suitable. It works on the same principles as foot and hand reflexology. There are reflex points in the ears which correspond to specific areas of the body and the internal organs. Massaging these reflex points stimulates the organs to improve circulation, reduce tension, and balance the body’s energy.
