Your Health and Reflexology

Kathleen Ismael, Certified Reflexology Practitioner

Touch is a basic human need. Studies have shown that infants who receive minimal care and seldom experience touch in early months will experience emotional and behavioral impact.

Each organ and system in our bodies is influenced by a respective touch point in our hands, and especially in our feet. It is incredible to think about that connection!

We all know that the “reflexes” in our knees ignite when the right “spot” is tapped with that cute, little rubber hammer at the yearly check-up. That always makes me giggle a bit.

Reflexology is a gentle pressure or massage to specific areas of feet and hands where points of connection to organs, systems, and emotions can be awakened. This awakening can stimulate healing and balance.

Reflexology is safe and gentle. A knowledgeable practitioner will discern areas of need and address them with care.

An ancient art, Reflexology has been a part of relaxation, healing, and comforting people around the world for hundreds of years.

A Reflexology session is typically 60 to 90 minutes. It can involve a comforting foot-soak and soothing oils and gentle massage of hands and feet. Reflexology is often offered in a health spa or as a mobile in-home service.
