Janice's Feet First Reflexology Services

Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient technique based on the premise that every organ, system and part of your body has a reflex point in your hands, feet and ears and by massaging these points we can feel where the body is not performing at 100%.  Reflexology increases blood flow, encourages relaxation, and helps the body get back to its healthy state.  

Reiki

Reiki is a hands-free energy healing modality.  Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing  through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing and wellness. 

Hot Stone Reflexology

Hot Stone reflexology gives a spa-like essence to a regular reflexology treatment by adding a hot river stone massage of the feet and lower leg at the end of a regular reflexology session.  The heated stones add to the circulation benefits of a traditional reflexology session and also add that little touch of pampering to the client.

Gua Sha

A black Gua Sha tool

Traditional Chinese modality of healing, a part of acupuncture techniques, where the skin is gently rubbed with a special tool to help release toxins that are near the surface of the skin.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi (Chi) in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.

Moxa is usually made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vulgaris), but it can be made of other substances as well.  This is a common practice in Tibetan and Chinese traditional medicine and is a great complementary therapy to cupping, reflexology, and acupuncture o name a few.
