Reflexology is a form of bodywork that focuses primarily on the feet. There are "reflex" areas on the feet that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. A session begins with a consultation about your health and lifestyle. You are then asked to remove your shoes and socks and sit comfortably in a reclining chair or on a massage table. Otherwise you remain fully clothed. The reflexologist will assess the feet and then stimulates various points to identify areas of tenderness or tension. Then pressure is applied from the toes to the heel according to your comfort.
Lotion or oil may be used. Some of the benefits are: Stress and stress-related conditions Tension headaches Digestive disorders Arthritis Insomnia Hormonal imbalances Sports injuries, Menstrual disorders, SHIATSU MASSAGE Is a type of massage consisting of finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other techniques. Shiatsu is traditionally performed on a mat, with clients fully clothed. When visiting a practitioner of shiatsu massage, wear loose, comfortable clothing. Most people enjoy shiatsu massage as much as they enjoy deep tissue massage, but expect some differences. Shiatsu will involve deep breathing, rotating and stretching your joints, as well as manipulating pressure points. When these points are pressed, people describe the sensation as feeling tender, tickling, intense, or slightly uncomfortable, unlike anything else. After the massage, you may feel strange, but not sore as in a muscular tissue massage. Many believe Shiatsu is both preventative and healing, so getting it done on a regular basis, along with stretching, exercise, and a healthy diet, may improve your health. Some of the benefits are: Depression, Anxiety, Nausea, Stiffness, Headaches, Arthritis, Cramps or pulled muscles.
