Healing Rock Reflexology
Rock Reflexology at Calming Winds is coming in July.
Reflexology rests on the ancient belief in qi (pronounced “chee”), or “vital energy.” According to this belief, qi flows through each person. When a person feels stressed, their body blocks qi. This can cause an imbalance in the body that leads to illness. Reflexology aims to keep qi flowing through the body, keeping it balanced bringing blood flow to your feet which then brings energy to the body’s systems.
In Chinese medicine, different body parts correspond with different pressure points on the body. Reflexologists use these points in the feet, hands, and ears to determine where they should apply pressure. The Basalt Lava rocks retain heat very well. The ancients believe that these lava rocks have nurturing, cleansing and healing effects on the body. The heat radiating from the stones is expected to relax the muscles in the feet and, at the same time, allowing the therapist to work deeper into the reflex areas.
This ancient tradition which goes back thousands of years; sends energy flowing through these pressure points to a person’s body until it reaches the area in need of balancing. Each session of “Healing Rock Reflexology” lasts for 60 minutes.
