What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a very ancient healing system dating back 4000 years. The oldest known recordings were found in the tomb of an Egyptian Physician. Reflexology Vancouver is used to relieve stress and create balance in the body by working specific areas and points mapped out on the bottom of the feet.
Does Reflexology have to be Painful in order to work?
No! Although there are various techniques and forms of Reflexology that can be extremely painful, it definitely does not have to be painful in order to see results. Most feet may have tender spots or areas of the feet, which by the end of the treatment are either less tender or not tender any longer.
What kind of Reflexology Treatments do we offer at Elements?
Come in and experience our Elements Signature Treatment in our Bamboo Lounge. Relax in our oversized chairs while we care for you from the feet up. We start our signature treatment by soaking your feet in essential oil infused waters while our practitioner soothes your hands with a gentle massage. Our reflexologist accesses the body through specific points throughout the foot to re-establish energetic flow and promote relaxation in the muscles of the feet. Many clients fall asleep during the treatment due to the feeling of extreme relaxation.
What if I have Fungus on my feet or toe nails?
We use a product called Triguard, which is very effective in killing fungus. Just let us know a head of time and we can prepare a foot soak for you at an additional charge with Triguard.
