Spotlight On Advertiser: Reflexology and Your Health

Kathleen Ismael, Certified Reflexology Practitioner

Touch is a basic human need. Studies have shown that infants who receive minimal care and seldom experience touch in early months will experience emotional and behavioral impact.

This recent year has been challenging for many people who have become isolated and have missed the human connection we all need. Interaction keeps us thinking with a positive attitude and contributes to good health. We all know that people need human contact. It is good for our health.

Most people agree that community interaction with handshakes and hugs feeds the soul. One way to interact for healthier 2021 is human connection with Reflexology.

What is Reflexology?

During our yearly checkup, we feel the “reflexes” in our knees react when the right “spot” is tapped with that cute, little rubber hammer. That always makes me grin!

In the same way, each human organ and system has a point of reflex. Most are in the hands, and especially in the feet! A knowledgeable practitioner will gently tap, brush, roll, or massage these reflex points to influence a specific organ, system, or emotions.

This awakening can stimulate physical and emotional healing and balance, as if the organ itself is being massaged.

How can Reflexology help?

A Reflexology session is typically 60 to 90 minutes. It may include relaxing foot-soaking and soothing massage oils. A reflexology session may include mobile services in your home.

People who are recovering from a trauma, injury, or illness can benefit.

If you feel stressed about a physical or emotional experience, you can benefit.

To relax and focus strength for the upcoming golf or pickleball match, give it a go!

If you have any pain or inflammation, you can benefit.
