There are two body treatments I am passionate about being on the receiving end of, the first is Reflexology and the second is Indian Head Massage. Why? Because I feel absolutely amazing afterwards - they are tension busters. And it's all about de-stressing the body, the mind and the spirit.
I am excited about offering these treatments at the studio, by yours truly.
Our Reflexology treatment involves your lying on the massage table while your feet are tended to in a therapeutic way. The feet have zones that correspond to part of the body, stimulating and balancing energy in those meridians and organs. A foot treatment may actually release endorphins as well as reduce stress hormones.
Benefits of Reflexology include its ability to stimulate nerve function, increase energy, boost circulation, induce a deep state of relaxation, and eliminate toxins from the body. Moreover, it helps stimulate the central nervous system, prevent migraines, and treat urinary tract conditions. This type of massage speeds up recovery after an injury or surgery, reduces sleep disorders, and relieves depression and pain. It also helps in relieving side effects associated with cancer treatment and even soothe the pain of pregnancy, even the one occurring after delivery:
- 1 hr: $75 (can be combined with Indian Head Massage)
- For those that are registered at classes at the studio – $65/hr (can be combined with Indian Head Massage)
Please contact the studio to book your appointment. See you on the massage table!
I had not tried either so I booked in for both. After the session I became aware of my body’s full release of tension. I had no idea that it was in such a tight and constricted state. I made a note to myself to remember this new feeling,
which makes sense because both of these therapies address areas of the body where there are multiple nerve endings. My body was limber and relaxed. I felt lighter and strangely ‘unlocked’.
I am a gardener by profession and am aware of how to conserve and utilize my body but this energizing experience was a perfect marker for the way my body should feel, at least at the beginning of my season.
With this new awareness I am looking forward to indulging in these treatments down the line. I’ll keep you posted.
