Winter is upon us in beautiful Denver, Colorado. Holiday stress can take hold quickly. Need a way to relax? Foot Massage is extremely relaxing for most everyone. Reflexology is a technique used on the feet(and hands)for treating not just your feet, but your entire body and mind! If you’re interested in trying a unique approach to holistic healing and stress relief through your feet, Reflexology might be just what you need this holiday season.
Reflexology is an ancient healing art. Reflexology has been documented on four continents: Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America. The most common theory is that the earliest form of reflexology originated in China, as much as 5000 years ago!
Reflexology was introduced to the United States in 1913 by William H. Fitzgerald, M.D., an ear, nose, and throat specialist, and Dr. Edwin Bowers. Fitzgerald believed that applying pressure had an anesthetic effect on other areas of the body.
In the 1930s and 1940s Eunice D. Ingham, a nurse and physiotherapist claimed that the feet and hands were especially sensitive, and mapped the entire body into “reflexes” on the feet. It was at this time that “zone therapy” was created.
The Zone Theory presents the foot into multiple zones that correlate with all of the organs throughout the body.
Reflexology is not a replacement for regular medicine or medical treatments. It is certainly something that has no proven medical results and its theories are rooted in eastern medicine.
One thing I can guarantee is Reflexology has a very deep relaxing affect. Most of the time my clients fall into a sleep like state or completely fall asleep. There is no denying the blanket of peace that wraps around the person AND the massage therapist during a Reflexology treatment.
Reflexology can take up to 30 minutes out of an hour or more treatment. During this time, deep breathing will be done by the client while the massage therapist addresses points of pain the client expresses are present in other areas of the body.
If this sounds like something you’d like to experience at the simple cost of $1 a minute or $60 per hour, with $10 given off if you’re a new client, please visit www.denverpeaceofmindmassage.com for more information on booking a Reflexology Massage in Denver today!
