What is Reflexology?

What is Reflexology? | Calgary WOW Centre | Integrated Wellness Centre | SW Calgary

Reflexology is a science-based healing art that dates back to the time of the ancient Egyptians. It is built on the principle that there are reflexes found in our hands, feet, face and ears that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body.

Day to day stress, pain, injury, or poor sleep may push our bodies out of balance and activate our fight or flight stress response. By applying pressure to the reflexes, we stimulate the rest and repair response, promoting our own body’s natural healing power. 

As a gentle and non-invasive practice, Reflexology is safe for most people. It compliments many eastern and western health care practices as well as being a powerful stand-alone treatment. Mainly preformed on the feet Reflexology is much more than a “foot rub” and the beneficial affects can be felt through out the whole body. 

Reproflexology(TM) is preformed on the feet and uses specialized reflexology protocols to help regulate the menstruation cycle, perimenopause and menopause. It can help women going through fertility treatments like IVF, IUI, and ICSI. Pre pregnancy, Pregnancy, and postnatal can be supported with this protocol. 

Reflexology for Lymphatic Drainage (RLD) is a reflexology protocol specialized in stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet. Although performed on the feet, RLD stimulates the lymphatic system for the whole body. RLD can help people who have had lymph nodes removed and have swelling in a limb as a result, as well as people who have Lymphedema.
