Reflexology – Great For Your Body, Mind & Spirit

By Natalie Flores,
Licensed Massage Therapist

Have you ever experienced a Reflexology session? While other major U.S. cities have many reflexology centers all over town, St. Louis has been a little slower to embrace this healing modality. Until Now. Holistic Health & Fitness in Shrewsbury has created a dedicated reflexology space with specialized seating created just for this unique service.
Some people think this service is just for sore and aching feet. Not true! Based on acupuncture meridians that run through the entire body, Reflexology can benefit much more than just the feet. In fact, this list shows just a few of the benefits of this ancient healing technique.

Primary Benefits of Reflexology:

  • Relieves stress and tension
  • Improves sleep and relaxation
  • Revitalizes energy
  • Improves Circulation
  • Reduces Neuropathy numbness and pain
  • Improves Sinus Function
  • Promotes a sense of well-being
  • Clears congested energy pathways
  • Helps with foot and calf pain

Before your Session
Each reflexology session begins with a warming foot soak, in water infused with herbs to relax the feet and calm the mind. In Chinese medicine, warm water and massage of the feet both help ground the body, improve sleep, and reduce irritability.

Trigger Points in the Feet
There are many correspondences with different areas in your body. During the session, the therapist will check in with you about any spots that are unusually sore. This can indicate underlying health issues in the corresponding part of the body.

So, come treat your body and mind to a therapeutic and relaxing reflexology session. You can even bring a friend – it’ll do so much more for your long term health than that mani/pedi you get every month. Through June 30, initial reflexology sessions are discounted to $45 (usually $55). Call 314-647-3999 or hop online at www.holistichealthstl.com to book your session.
