What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a form of bodywork that focuses primarily on the feet.

Specific reflex areas on feet and hands are massaged producing a therapeutic response in the corresponding organs, glands and other parts of the body.

 

History of Reflexology

Foot work treatments and practices have existed since history of human kind. It was further developed and researched in Russia and Germany. Modern Reflexology as we know it is primarily based on American physiotherapist Eunice Ingham`s research and experience.

What to expect in a Reflexology treatment with The Art of Balance

A typical treatment is 60 minutes long and begins with a short consultation about your health and lifestyle.

You are then asked to remove your shoes and socks to receive a warm and soothing footbath. Otherwise you remain fully clothed.

Then I invite you to recline comfortably on my massage table. I will now further loosen your ankle joints and warm up your feet with gentle massage movements of my hands. I will then apply pressure, stretch and movement methodically to your feet using specific thumb, finger and hand techniques.

The pressure applied to your feet is guided by you and will be within your comfort zone. Not too heavy and not too light, at a level within your personal preference.

Every reflexology treatment will leave you feeling both relaxed and invigorated.

You will feel like walking on air.
