Reflexology is a natural, holistic healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet that correspond to every gland, organ and part of the body. The practice of reflexology dates back to the ancient societies of Egypt, India and China. Reflexology has been practiced in China for over 5, years. Treatment includes a warm towel wrap to the feet and a reflexology foot massage with a soothing peppermint foot lotion.

Primitive reflexes lay the foundation of development for posture, learning, emotions and behaviour. RMTi is done on the floor to mimic the movements babies naturally and automatically make. People who find it hard to have the rhythm actively, or who have jerky and uncoordinated movements with asymmetry of their body, can indicate dysfunction of the cerebellum and active primitive reflexes that are unintegrated.
Practice and passive movements someone helping with the movements can help the person feel and work on getting the rhythm and coordination to do the movements actively. The movements daily are less than minutes to start out and work up slowly to minutes daily or every second day. Short periods of time is all that is needed to benefit; too much will overstimulate the brain.
The rhythmic movements are needed for the brain to link up its parts and act as one unit. In infancy we need to be touched, hugged, rocked and allowed to move around freely. This signals the brainstem for tactile, vestibular, and proprioceptive senses. Without this there will be developmental delays. For example, babies born prematurely or the use of baby props that prevent infants from moving freely can limit the stimulation to the brain and affect development and primitive reflexes to be integrated.
Also any kind of injury or trauma, like whiplash or concussion, can cause these primitive reflexes, which are for survival, to need integration again. RMTi has been used in Sweden for over 25 years. The movements improve posture, breathing, endurance, and will gradually normalize muscle tone and over flexible joints.

My passion is to help people and that is why I went into massage therapy.
Some would say I am a natural born people pleaser. I have a very quiet and calming personality, which makes massage therapy a perfect fit for me. My hands are strong and my heart is tender. Every massage therapist has there own strengths and weaknesses and I feel my strength is with deep tissue work - especially with the neck, shoulders and upper back. I love the challenge of deep tissue work and trying to figure out the patterns of a persons tension and which trigger point it's coming from.
Sometimes it's like trying to solve a mystery, and when you solve it, there is no better feeling in the world for me. I strive to learn more and more with continueing education courses. Bodywork Services Special Offers.
