Reflexology is an ancient practice that uses massage and pressure point stimulation to relieve pain and increase the flow of energy throughout the body.
This healing massage therapy technique has been successfully used for centuries to treat a variety of emotional and physical conditions. Today, we use reflexology to promote pain relief, healing and relaxation.
In northern Utah, Body Balance Massage and Float offers reflexology treatment as a part of our comprehensive suite of massage and healing therapies. At our American Fork massage clinic, we focus on healing treatments tailored to your individual needs.
What Is Reflexology?
Reflexology was originally used in China, for the purpose of stimulating the body’s vital energy, or qi (chi). Stress, toxins and other influences can block the flow of energy, causing imbalances that lead to pain and dis-ease. This discomfort can be emotional, physical or both. It may be felt generally throughout the body or concentrated in certain areas.
We use reflexology techniques to release blocked energy, rebalancing and restoring the body.
Different organs, systems and parts of the body are connected to specific pressure points, typically on the soles of the feet. The therapist – called a reflexologist – focuses on those pressure points that relate to your discomfort. The therapist exerts light pressure and uses a variety of massage techniques to achieve the desired results. Some treatments also stimulate specific parts of the hands or ears during the treatment, as these also contain pressure points that respond to reflexology.
