I recently did a reflexology segment for the Lisa Oz Show. She’s a big fan of reflexology. The aim of her show is to empower others to live well. I can get on board with that wholeheartedly!
I talked with Lisa about things you can do at home to find balance and achieve wellness, including a 5-minute reflexology routine you can do to alleviate allergies and congestion, PMS and hot flashes, and stress.
I also recommended my favorite reflexology gadgets, and even a few easy reflexology techniques you can use with your kids. Here’s a previous post on DIY reflexology gadgets in case you missed it.
Here’s the clip: watch to find out the unusual reflexology gadget I keep in front of my kitchen sink (a favorite with visitors to my apartment), along with the #1 most powerful point in reflexology (it’s a good one).
What can Reflexology tell me about my health?
I hear this question a lot.
Throughout your Reflexology session I assess any stress cues your feet may have and evaluate them to come up with a personalized treatment plan.
Stress cues show how your feet adapt to stress and this reflects stress in other parts of your body. For example, adaptation is shown with visual signs such as callouses, knobby toes, or a bunion. Additional indications of stress are sensitivity to technique application and change in tissue texture.
This assessment allows me to target areas of stress and design a session specific to your individual needs. By focusing on any areas of imbalance, your body can move immediately toward homeostasis.
Research shows that a single Reflexology session creates relaxation, reduces anxiety, diminishes pain, improves blood flow, and decreases high blood pressure.
So getting a Reflexology session is a valuable addition to your wellness. (Though remember, as a Reflexologist, I don’t diagnose or prescribe!) Ready to book a session?
