What reflexology massage is?

Reflexology is an age-old therapeutic art that takes a unique approach to wellness and relaxation. It is based on the theory that certain parts of the hands, feet, and ears connect to particular organs and systems in the body.
The foundation of this complementary therapy is the idea that by applying pressure to these particular reflex sites, the body’s inherent healing powers can be activated, enhancing general well-being and reestablishing equilibrium. Thus, this massage has the power to treat a variety of ailments, combat stress, and improve general health.

Fundamentals of Reflexology Massage Gig Harbor WA

The basic principle of reflexology is that different organs, glands, and body parts are associated with distinct reflex points on the hands, feet, and ears. Our reflexologist’s goal is to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms by applying pressure to certain reflex spots, which promotes improved circulation, relaxation, and stress release.
Compared to regular massage therapists, our reflexologists have specified knowledge of the body’s anatomy to make sure you get the true essence of the massage. Their training includes not just the study of the body’s anatomy, but also pressure application and certain techniques and ways to make sure that you get the essence of the massage.
