Harmonize to restore
Haven’t been feeling in yourself lately?
Our body is a miraculous institution that depends on the harmonious cooperation of all those thousands of parts of our body and mind. A better emotional and physical health can be encouraged with the help of healing hands and reflexology.
Reflexology aims to create balance, harmony and a sense of well-being of your overall health. By encouraging the body’ own healing capacity to promote the recovery of your overall physical, mental and emotional state of health, in a natural gentle way.
It brings you into a deep relaxing state, helps calm the mind and your inner emotional world. Unlike massage that manipulates the outer layer, reflexology heals from the inside out. Generating a response over the neural pathways and energy lines or meridians, stimulating the nervous system to release tension and begin repair.
What to expect…
Reflexology is based on the principle that the anatomy of the body is reflected on reflex points of the feet and the hands. Your feet and hands are like a treasure map for a reflexologist with different zones on it that reflect your body. The shapes, lines and grooves of your foot and toes and the colour, tone and temperature of your skin tell a thousand stories!
Tiny imbalances can be detected by touching the feet and hands. During a reflexology session pressure is applied to sensory nerves endings, utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques. A response is initiated to the relating organ, glands or tissue in the body, triggering the body’s the natural healing power to kick in.
A fusion of Western and Chinese reflexology techniques is used at MarisSage. Implementing meridians, acupressure points, energetic and hand or feet reflexology, clearing impaired or blocked neural pathways and stimulation of the free flow of energy. Addressing both the physical and energetic system increases the efficiency of the reflexology treatment.
In general, the treatment feels wonderful, relaxing and soothing. (No, it doesn’t tickle or give you excruciating pain. And yes, we cleanse your feet.) When working on your feet you may experience some discomfort in certain areas. However, this will usually be brief indicating areas of imbalance in the body.
