Treatment Spotlight: Reflexology
Ideal Client: Anyone

I was recently asked by someone, what my most favorite treatment to give (and receive) was. It took me no time to reply with the answer, reflexology.
When reflexology is preformed correctly, it not only balances the physical body, giving a great sense of well being, and total relaxation, but it also can help your emotional state as well. This transformation is achieved by stimulating the reflexes found on the bottom of the feet, which transfer electrical impulses of energy (also referred to as Meridians), to different parts of the body. For instance if you are suffering with a migraine headache, it may not be possible to massage the head, as it may be too sensitive to touch, however by applying pressure to the big toe (the head meridian) the pressure that you are feeling in you head, will begin to subdue.
Anyone can receive Reflexology, though extra care is given to pregnant women. It is a wonderful treatment to help the body heal itself, and the frequency depends on the condition you are working on erasing. I find many of our facial clients at Fountains add it onto a facial service to give themselves the added benefits of well being and relaxation.
At Fountains, we give 25 or 55 minute reflexology sessions. If you have back aches or other stubborn pain issues, then I would recommend the longer treatment. Come in and try a little bit of heaven, and judge for yourself.
