REFLEXOLOGY(1, 2 or 3 Focus Treatment)
The practitioner may choose to work only on the feet, or the hands, or the ears, depending on your specific issues. Some problems respond better to the reinforcement of work on all three—hands, ears, and feet. If the reflexologist chooses to work on your feet, you will lie or sit down, remaining fully clothed except for your shoes and socks. The practitioner may wash your feet and soak them in a warm foot bath, then transition you onto the treatment table. The practitioner will begin by assessing your feet for open wounds, rashes, sores, plantar warts or bunions and will ask you about any foot or leg pain that could hinder treatment.
Generally a session lasts between 30-60 minutes. You can rest or talk during the session at your discretion. If you fall asleep during the session, you will be more open to receive the benefits of the treatment. Feedback during the session is encouraged, and of course, you can request that the session stop at any time. Regardless of your health condition(s) (for example, migraine, nausea, sciatica, etc.), the reflexologist focuses on the entire pattern of the reflexology therapy, starting at the toes and working down the foot. A complete reflexology therapy session uses many different techniques and includes reflex points on both feet (and perhaps the hands and ears). By working reflex points, the reflexologist addresses internal organs and glands as well as muscle groups, bones, nerve ganglions (solar plexus, brachial plexus) and nerves (sciatic) during a session. If you have a specific condition, such as migraines, the reflexologist will carefully feel and work the area corresponding to the presenting problem. However, they will also work all areas of the foot with gentle pressure, because, according to reflexology theories, this allows the nerve pathways and congestion to release and promotes the relaxation response for the entire body.
How pain and discomfort is handled
The first thing to understand is that the reflexologist stimulates the nervous system to do the work of balancing and releasing; it is not the therapist who "fixes" discomfort. In other words, “releasing pain" is not the model; the goal is rather to bring the whole body into balance, and then the pain will subside. If reflexologists find pain, congestion, or tightness during the session, they will apply pressure to work on bringing the body back into balance. The reflexologist can return to that area or spot at the end of the session, confirming the pain has released. Throughout the session, the reflexologist will stay present, grounded, and in a calm and centered state of awareness.
What reflexology feels like
Experiences with reflexology sessions vary from a general feeling of relaxation, to a sense of "lightness" or tingling in the body, as well as feelings of warmth, a sense of "opening," or "energy moving" from the practitioner's pressure to the specific body area or organ. There is often a physical perception of energy flowing through every organ, valve, gland, or muscle, as well as a sense of communication between each body system.
Other reactions during the session range from physical to emotional and may include:
✔ Perspiration of hands or feet ✔ Sensation of being cold or chilled
✔ Feeling light-headed ✔ Coughing
✔ Laughing ✔ Crying
✔ Sighing deeply ✔ Overwhelming desire to sleep
✔ Disappearance of all pain and discomfort ✔ Loose, relaxed muscles and organs
✔ Thirst ✔ Rarely, contraction of muscle groups (pain)
Reflexologists do not diagnose
Reflexologists do not diagnose or tell you about any congestion or tension they observe on the foot, hand, or ear during a session that may suggest abnormalities.
One of the theories of reflexology is that the body will nurture and repair itself once released from stress. If the body is extremely stressed, the reflexologist may refer you to a medical team or another treatment, if appropriate, but at no time will he or she give medical advice or diagnosis.
The end of the session
[reflexologist talking to a patient] Most reflexologists have some type of calm, peaceful way of closing the session that involves stroking the hand or foot and holding the limb in some manner. The important aspect is for you to feel comforted and nurtured.
Now that the session is complete, you should not feel rushed. Gently bring yourself back into the present moment, and orient yourself. As you feel comfortable, gather yourself and your belongings to leave.
The practitioner may recommend that you drink water, rest if necessary, and pay attention to your body in the next few hours. If any questions or concerns arise, you should be able to call the practitioner.
After a reflexology treatment
Various reactions may occur following a reflexology session. These, too, are subtle, and are often not recognized by many people as a result of the reflexology therapy. Many of the reactions are positive signs that the session is part of a healing process; other symptoms are indicative of the body's attempts to return to a state of balance and harmony. Symptoms usually last for 24-48 hours.
Reactions to reflexology treatment may include:
✔ Increased energy ✔ Enhanced sleep
✔ Relief from pain ✔ More mobile joints
✔ Tiredness ✔ Skin rashes, pimples, or spots (due to elimination of toxins)
✔ Kidney stones passed with ease ✔ Frequent bowel movements, diarrhea (cleansing, elimination of toxins)
✔ Increased mucus (nasal discharge, vaginal discharge) ✔ Emotional or psychological release (crying)
Scheduling follow-up sessions
The number of sessions varies and is determined by the client's health and reasons for seeking reflexology. But in general, results from reflexology are often subtle and are cumulative. Thus, you are more likely to see greater benefits from regular sessions (for example, once a week for six weeks) than once a month for "tune ups"
REIKI (1, 2 or 3 focus treatment)
This ancient Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation also promotes healing energy. Reiki is administered by laying on hands and has been used for thousands of years around the world. Reiki is a natural and safe form of healing the mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Using this powerful universal energy aids to realign our chakras and remove blockages that may be holding you back from your potential. A wonderful and powerful treatment for everyone at any age. This treatment is usually blended with Chakra Balancing and massage in 2 and 3 focus treatments.

CHAKRA BALANCING (1, 2 or 3 Focus Treatment)
The word Chakra in Sanscit translates to wheel or disc and are best described as centers of consciousness. They are centers of activity that receives assimilates and expresses life force energy known as chi, qi or prana. They are responsible for the person's physical, mental, and spiritual functions. They absorb and transmit energies to and from the universe, nature, celestial entities, from people even from things. The most significant ones are the Seven Main Chakras located along the central line of the body, from the base of the spine to the top of the head. They are located in the ethereal body and they express the embodiment of spiritual energy on the physical plane. Although Chakras are not physical or emotional yet they interact with both of these realms. The chakras are constantly rotating and vibrating. The activities in the them influence our:
Body shape, Glandular processes, Chronic physical ailments, Thoughts, and Behaviour.
When one (or more) of the chakra is blocked and the energy does not flow harmoniously through them, or it is wide open, it will result in imbalance that is manifested in all areas of life. Chakra balancing will clear, align, attune and expand the Chakra centers using vibratory alignment and intention.
The clearing of the energy can balance our emotional state of mind, our physical bodies and our connection with our soul. If you have achiness, tension or stiffness, or certain reoccurring emotions and fears, Chakra Balancing may be right for you.
One of the best ways to balance the chakra frequencies is through meditation. By focusing on a particular color, sound or mantra, we balance the Chakra so there isn't a blockage of energy or overabundance of energy flowing to this center.
3 Focus Treatment Includes: discovering which chakra/chakras are imbalanced, aromatherapy, light therapy through led facial mask, chakra meditation using gemstones and crystals, Reiki (laying of hands) and acupressure massage on particular chakra points and Reflexology points (on feet, hands and/or ears.
MERIDIAN FACIAL CONTOURING (1, 2 or 3 Focus Treatment)
Adapted from the ancient Chinese technique, meridian massage fuses the theory used in acupuncture into modern techniques by massaging key meridian facial points along energy pathways that is great for anti-aging, sensitive and acne prone skin. This extremely relaxing and healing technique will increase circulation, sculpt, lift and tone fascia and muscles, reduces wrinkles, clears acne and blemishes, clears lymphatic pathways, soothes nerves, relieves stress due to the skin, headaches and sinus pressure, and decreases inflammation. Leaves skin looking more radiant, vibrant and glowing.
LED LIGHT THERAPIES (1, 2 or 3 Focus Treatment)
LED lights treat different skin conditions: Blue light has antibacterial properties and has been FDA approved to treat acne. The light kills the p. acnes bacteria as it absorbs it. Red LED light is anti-inflammatory, repairs damaged cells, and is also said to regulate sebum production so it is often used in conjunction with blue light to treat oily skin, as well as inflammatory skin infections and conditions. Red LED light also has been shown to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin after regular use over time, because when it penetrates into the dermis, it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin: the proteins responsible for keeping our skin plump, firm, and intact. It also helps repair cells that were damaged by the sun and other extrinsic factors, and reduce inflammation caused by free radical damage. Green LED light is used to balance color pigmentation, reduce redness and assist in wound healing. Yellow LED improves exchange of oxygen in the skin, enhances immunity and promotes lymphatic drainage.
Each color also represents the 7 Chakras and assists in balancing the energy associated with a particular Chakra that is out of balance.
