Oakville Reflexology: The stimulation of reflex points on the feet, available at Halton Chiropractic Clinic
Reiki Oakville: Channeling the Universal Life Force Energy
Reflexology is used to alleviate physical symptoms through stimulation of one "zone", the feet. Reflexology is an ancient technique from over 5000 years ago. In reflexology there are approximately 7200 nerve endings in each foot.
During a reflexology treatment, massaging foot muscles allows blood to circulate more freely. In a reflexology treatment a client will remove all footwear and relax on a table with their feet raised. The feet are cleansed prior to a reflexology treatment and then relaxed. The reflexology practitioner will stimulate the reflex points all over the feet, taking note of any pain or tenderness. Tender spots found on the feet during reflexology indicate that you may have a problem in the corresponding part of the body.
Reiki Oakville: The universe is filled with an inexhaustible supply of energy. It is this universal & productive source of power that flows through the hands of the Reiki practitioner and into the body of the receiver. Reiki is effective wherever the hands touch because Reiki hands radiate energy at any time. The Reiki practitioner directs energy to a problem in the body that is most out-of-balance.
Reiki brings the body and mind into an even balance and works on all levels; physical, spiritual and emotional. A Reiki treatment is a simple, non-intrusive process. Reiki encourages self-healing, strengthens body and soul, reduces stress and rebuilds harmony.
