Description of Services
Reflexology for Health and Wellness. Services are offered for 30 or 60 minutes. Reflexology is an ancient healing modality that has been used by most cultures as a means of healing the mind-body and spirit. Most cultures have used some type of practice of healing on the feet for centuries. These Reflexology techniques can also be applied to hand and face. The most notable examples are the Egyptians, Chinese, and Hindu cultures. The principle philosophy is there are points on the feet that relate reflexively to all parts of the body. Manipulating the feet with a specific thumb and finger reflexing technique, activates the foot reflexes and stimulates, balances the part of the body represented by the foot reflex zone. Reflexology is different from foot hand face massage. Reflexology is a systematic and thorough manipulation of the feet using very specific techniques as opposed to random rubbing of the feet, hands, face during a massage. Reflexology can be done for relaxation purposes or it can be used for a very specific therapeutic purpose. Just as massage has relaxing and soothing techniques, reflexology can be done gently for relaxing purposes or with deeper pressure for a more stimulating healing effect.
Foot and Hand Reflexology $65 1 hour $35 - 30 minutes
Facial Reflexology and Wellness $80 1 hour
Services by Appointment only. Text Jayde at 699 238-5134 for more information and to schedule a session with Jayde.
