All About Reflexology

reflexology massage nyc

If you are suffering from insomnia, stress, hormonal imbalance, irritable bowel syndrome, sinus congestion, digestive problems, and neck stiffness, reflexology can come to your rescue. It can help improve the quality of your life and promote a sense of well-being. A form of alternative or complementary therapy, reflexology is based on pressure-point massage to reflex points in the feet. According to the practice, left foot corresponds to the left side of your body while right foot to the right side. Reflexology at wellness spa NYC is focused on healing the body as a whole as represented in the feet, treating both symptoms and causes. At Spa Aura, we believe reflexology is more than a foot massage that induces a healing response in corresponding organs connecting the nodal points being pressed by the reflexologist.

Reflexology Foot Massage Offered in a Relaxing Massage Spa Setting

Reflexology massage therapy is based on the theory that there are a few pressure points in your feet and hands that when pressed with thumbs and/or fingers can offer a healing touch. Initially, when the reflexology at spa wellness NYC session begins, the imbalanced areas corresponding to different parts of the body may feel slightly uncomfortable or tender. The degree of tenderness is an indication of the degree of imbalance.

Reflexology can help promote the circulation of blood and nutrients, which can further help clear channels of blocked energy that cause pain.

While the feet sensitivity may vary from one person to another, our trained practitioners are highly experienced in the correct application of pressure. They can leverage their experience and knowledge to interpret the tenderness felt by the client. Reflexology at Korean spa NYC is done with smooth hands by applying pressure on the nodal points to relieve pain.

The technique uses a combination of massage techniques, which include pressing the pressure points on the sole of the feet, palms, and ear edges. It also involves squeeze and release movements to improve blood flow to the area.

How Reflexology Foot Massage Works

The reflexology massage therapy is based on the premise that the reflex points connect the bottom of your feet to the head, connecting all vital organs. Just like in acupressure and acupuncture, reflexology believes that relieving blockages can have a healing effect on the pain points in the body.  We believe that the application of appropriate pressure on the nodal points can have a therapeutic effect on the organs and help improve overall health.
