Reflexology is a holistic science that uses reflex areas in the feet and hands as a mini-map of the body. Pressure is applied to these reflexes and nerve zones to help the various body systems, and the body as a whole, achieve homeostasis. The Body Systems Method, designed by Roz Zollinger, is used for optimal results.
What is the Body Systems Method?
This approach works through each of the major body systems in turn. Beginning with the Nervous System, we also address the Endocrine, Muscular, Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary, and Lymphatic Systems.

How does aromatherapy increase the benefit and what essential oils are used?
The soles of your feet have about 5,000 pores which makes it very easy to absorb the healing compounds in essential oils. These oils aid in detoxifying and restoring balance to the body. Their aromatic quality has a relaxing effect when inhaled during a session.
The essential oils I use are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG), and are diluted in coconut oil for reflexology applications. I have a variety of single oils and blends available depending on your individual needs, sensitivities, and preferences.
