You will receive a combination of soothing foot massage and reflexology treatment.
Relaxing foot massage is done by applying lonsion and massaging your feet and calf muscles working on the energy lines all the way up to your knees.
In the other part of the treatment, using a reflexology stick or thumb, a different amount of pressure is applied on your foot reflexology points promoting healing response in corresponding organs.
A typical treatment is about 60 min long and begins with consultation about your health history and lifestyle. Based on that I can customize the reflexology part of the treatment.
While seated in a comfortable chair and your feet will be cleaned with a non-alcoholic natural disinfect spray before we start the massage.
Using lotion (vitamin E and coconut oil) I will massage with my hands and fingers relaxing and warming up your feet. I may also use thumb pressure and reflexology stick for the reflexology points.
Most people find reflexology very relaxing.
Reflexology shouldn’t be painful. But, some points may be sore or tender, which can indicate disbalance in the related organ. In that case more time will be spent on the problematic area.
If you are ticklish, don’t worry, the pressure on the foot is firm.
Most people feel calm and relaxed after the session.
While they are walking away, people often comment that they feel like having a new pair of feet.
Due to a sedentary lifestyle we don’t use the feet muscles properly and we also wear tight footwear, all this hampers the circulation of feet.
The foot massage helps transporting oxygen to the body’s cells, which is essential for overall health.
Our feet which bears the weight of the whole body allows locomotion and does a lot of work. Still they are the least pampered part of the body. To pamper your feet and keep them strong and flexible a foot massage is recommended.
You will be provided with a pair of thai massage pants to wear. Otherwise, come in lose clothes so that I can pull your trousers up to the knee and that you can sit comfortably during the session.

Foot reflexology is a traditional Chinese healing practice based on the belief that different points on the foot correspond to different organs in the body.
By applying different amount of pressure on these points the flow of vital energy (qi, “chee”) is promoted, preventing disease and keeping the body balanced.
A foot massage may sound the same as a reflexology treatment, but in reflexology the focus is on promoting a healing response in the corresponding organs and natural flow of energy.
While in foot massage the point is to work on your muscles and other soft tissues to improve circulation, relieve pain, and induce overall relaxation.
I find the combination of the two being the most rewarding.
