I received an on-line discount opportunity to experience reflexology at a discounted rate.  I’ve had reflexology recently at another shop, but was disappointed in that I didn’t feel that it had any positive after affects for how my feet felt.  Wearing high heels, and the aggressive workout I enjoy can leave my feet sore and tired sometimes.  When I tried this new vendor I was happily surprised!

This man practices thai massage and reflexology.  We discussed his practice’s beliefs.  Thai reflexology and massage believes that at different points on the foot there are corresponding organs that pressure on these points can affect.  They also believe that putting pressure on these points creates healing energy for the body.  It was relaxing and invigorating for my feet and lower legs.  He utilized stretching the calves, shins, ligaments and tendons and also he also moved around the meta tarsels in the feet.  Energy points on the feet and lower legs are flexed and balanced.  Thai study believes that these points correspond to the different systems of the body like the nervous system and the internal organs.

All I know is that I experienced increased circulation, and it made my feet and legs feel relaxed and pampered!
