Elite Massage Therapy


Reflexology is based on the premise

that every part of the body, inside and out, has a corresponding spot on the feet, hands, and ears. With a specific thumb and finger technique, the goal of Reflexology is to guide the body back to homeostasis (a state of equilibrium and balance).

A reflexology session on the hands, feet, ears, and scalp is just as relaxing and therapeutic as a whole body massage, if not more.  Reflexology is a highly detoxifying modality and is considered to be a "recalibration" of both mind and bodyDuring a session the client usually experiences a heightened state of relaxation, often drifting into a deep sleepIt is important that the client drink plenty of water following their session and an Epsom salt bath is highly recommended.
*Due to the heightened state of relaxation, some clients have reported a lack of concentration following their appointment; therefore, sessions should be scheduled accordingly. 

Common benefits of a Reflexology session
