Reflexology: Making Space

Injuries and traumas of all kinds, along with emotional stress, create a protective tightening through our musculature that restricts space and limits how we move and function. This protective tension is often unconscious and difficult to detect on our own.
Reflexology is very effective for opening space because it can dramatically reduce these sometimes long held tension patterns. Special techniques and gentle articulations—especially around the toes, ankles and inner arch—have a subtle but powerful effect on the nervous system. The parasympathetic (self-regulating) nervous system gets switched on, which activates essential processes like respiration, digestion, general nervous system regulation, cardiovascular and immune function, among others. Opening joint space can dramatically ease muscular and joint pain while allowing fluids and energy to flow evenly.
Reflexologists simply but powerfully support the opening and unwinding of each client’s tension patterns so they can experience more space within their bodies. More space means the healing can happen more freely.
