Our Reflexology is better
While you may just be looking for a relaxing foot and hand massage, our spa offers traditional Thai reflexology for the foot and hands. It’s a healing massage that can leave not just your feet, but your whole body walking on air. Reflexology is a holistic therapy that applies pressure to specific points of the feet and hands to treat problems in all parts of the body. Reflexology is based on the principle that the body has natural energy that flows freely around the body when the person is in good health. Applying pressure to points on the foot treats the corresponding part of the body. austin foot massage

More to know about Reflexology
The Theory Of Thai Reflexology
Similar to the concept of Thai Massage therapy, reflexology is based on the principle that the body has natural energy that flows freely around the body when the person is in good health. The body’s energy flows in zones and is dynamic, balancing itself to meet the individual’s needs. With stress, tension, anxiety, poor diet, or lack of exercise, the energy flow becomes disrupted. In reflexology, specific points on the feet and hands are thought to correspond to each part of the body. Applying pressure to points on the foot treats the corresponding part of the body. How can your therapist tell when there’s an energy block in your body? One sign of energy imbalance is a gritty feeling, crystal-like in texture, that the reflexologist can detect beneath the skin. The location of the grittiness indicates the problem area in the body. Our reflexologist will try to break down this grittiness in order to restore the energy flow to that part of the body and flush out the toxins. The patient may feel discomfort when pressure is applied to problem spots. This helps your therapist identify the origin of the imbalance in the body, and treat the area by releasing the energy block. austin foot massage
The Origin of Thai Reflexology
The practice of foot massage has been known to man since the earliest civilizations and is depicted on Egyptian tomb paintings. Reflexology as we know it today is a modern therapy developed in the early 20th century. It was an American woman, Eunice Ingham, who identified and mapped out the body’s reflex zones in a form of zone therapy, referring to the method as reflexology. austin foot massage
