What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance. Reflexology is a serious advance in the health field and should not be confused with massage.

Is Reflexology New?

The idea behind Reflexology is not new - in fact, it was practiced as early as 2330 B.C. by the Egyptian culture. Reflexology as we know it today was first researched and developed by Eunice Ingham, the pioneer of this field. Her first book on the subject was published in 1938. 

What Does Reflexology Do?

The Ingham Method® of Reflexology is used primarily for relaxing tension. Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension. Reflexology improves nerve and blood supply, and helps nature to normalize.

What Special Equipment is Needed?

Only the hands are used, making it a safe, simple, yet effective method without the use of gadgets. Let your fingers do the walking.

 

Can Reflexology Make a Condition Worse?

No, it will not make any condition more acute. Reflexology helps to normalize body functions. A Reflexology session relaxes the stress that can affect your health. It is a safe effective way to Better Health.

What is an ionic foot bath?

The ionic foot bath is based on the bioenergetics technology that creates an energy field similar to the human body’s. The principal is similar to how a magnet works, except in this case the magnetic force functions to help cancel out and eliminate harmful free radicals and other toxins from the body.

 

How does an ionic foot bath work?

The ionic foot bath is a foot soak that uses water charged with positive and negative ions – electrolytes – which help draw toxins from your body out through your feet through a process of exchange between the positive and negative ions in your body, and their opposite numbers in the water. 

 

Why use an ionic foot bath?

We are constantly reminded to wash our hands and bathe daily to keep our body clean and prevent illness from outside germs but what about the inside of our body and the toxins exterior cleaning can't reach?

Consider our regular contact with:

  • Air pollution

  • Acid rain

  • Rancid foods

  • Food additives

  • Growth hormones from many foods

  • Fertilizers

  • Contaminated water

  • Over-chlorinated and fluorinated water

 

They can simply overwhelm the ability of the body’s internal mechanisms to cleanse itself. They play a critical role in your long-term emotional, mental, and bodily health.
