The feet are gateways to the soul.
Our feet take us everywhere we are going. When we connect with the earth, especially with our bare feet, it is an activation. The ground/soil we walk on as well as the ocean floor have negative ions that supply us with positive vibration, natural balance and well-being. This 'life force' energy we receive replenishes us. This is the power of the feet connecting with nature, natural water, with Earth. In our busy lives, or when the weather is cold, we aren't always able to touch foot to soil or to the ocean's floor. It is important to find another way to connect through our feet and receive life's energy-base to help keep us balanced. Reflexology is a bridge for this.
Reflexology is an ancient healing form that has been used for thousands of years in Egypt, China, India. These three countries in particular have all referenced the importance of feet in health & healing. The ancient healers knew the power of the foot.
How Reflexology works and what it does
The reflexes found on the bottoms of the feet are powerful tools of communication to the rest of the body. As the reflex points are gently and firmly pressed, they connect to an energy intelligence in your body. With these calls of energy, Reflexology then helps support the body in its own natural relaxation and healing process. Each reflex point correlates to a particular body part, organ or system. For example, if you were having difficulty sleeping, I might address the reflex points on your feet that correlate to the spine and head in order to bring in more relaxation for your entire nervous system.
Deeply relaxing, Reflexology is also a natural aid in assisting the body and mind to organically tune in. Extremely grounding, Reflexology assists in healing many systems of the body while calming the nervous system. A session will help restore and rejuvenate your body and mind. Your body systems will work in unison with your nervous system creating a recalibration. Health practitioners often refer to this recalibration as 'homeostasis' and it is a healthy, balanced state to be in. Physical conditions can be soothed & healed as well as emotional and energetic traumas, blockages. (*Some information sourced through Wendy Coad, CR & Teacher
A SoleHealing Reflexology Session
A private session is unique and tailored to you. All aspects of your being are considered, physical, emotional, mental, soul, spirit. You will experience a deep calm during your reflexology journey. I invite you to set an intent..a desire or reason for your visit.. or we can establish one together. An intent gives direction and helps sets the tone for you to receive the changes you wish to occur. Whether you choose to set an intention, fall asleep or want to know more about what is transpiring within you, your session is always confident and a safe place to truly let-go. This is tailored for you. As a Reflexologist, and in my SoleHealing sessions, I work as a guide for you..taking you into deep relaxation and bringing you back so you can feel results. Done in a reclining 'gravity' chair that feels heavenly. Massage tables are available if you prefer, please let me know ahead of time.
If you are having physical pains or concerns, your body will have an opportunity to experience significant levels of deep relaxation which helps ease pain. Spiritually and/or emotionally, some say they experience a feeling of connectedness or oneness, giving them greater personal insight. Nurturing and grounding, a session for you may allow you to simply recall what is most important in your life right now. Naturally linking the body and soul with grace, SoleHealing Reflexology reminds you of the sacred relationship to yourself, others and life.
A gracious article written by one of my clients:
Loved it. As soon as I saw the offer for Foot Reflexology, I had to jump on it. I love what this modality does for my body, mind and spirit. As Dena worked her magic, I went on a journey out of time...revisited memories as they arose, and came back to the present time and dimension refreshed and revitalized. It also appears to have helped my lower back problem that had been bothering me for over three weeks.
