I am a certified Reflexology Therapist since 2001 and registered with the (RAC) Reflexology Association of Canada). Over the years I have worked with clients suffering because of cancer, those in palliative care, pre and post surgery clients, children with special needs, individuals who are active in sports, as well as many people simply interested in maintaining a healthy life style and understand the benefits of Reflexology.
My experience, the reaction of my clients to Reflexology and the positive feedback I have received over the years, has solidified my beliefs, understanding and commitment to Reflexology. It is with this strong conviction along with nearly three decades of working within the corporate sector, that I have made the decision to focus on helping others improve their lives by establishing Reflexology 5.
I have witnessed, first hand how today's environmental stresses have manifested themselves into a variety of health issues that face many people both young and old, and how the strong benefits of Reflexology has helped.
The time has come to become more proactive with our health. Let us not forget Mr. Benjamin Franklin, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
Reflexology is a non-invasive therapeutic massage. Based on the premise that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears that correspond with every gland, organ and system in the body.
Through that application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology helps treat a range of conditions, including:
Fatigue / Anxiety / Stress
Hormonal / Menopausal
Digestive Bloating / IBS
Circulation / Numbness / Tingling
Pins & Needles
Plantar Fasciitis / Heel Spurs
Pre and Post Surgery
Sciatica / Back Pain / Neck Pain
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Increases Immune System
Filling in a brief health history

Recline on table or
Sit in zero gravity chair to recline

There are reactions that people may have from very minimal to more pronounced.
It is recommended that clients take a warm salted bath on the evening following treatment as well as drink plenty of water to help eliminate toxins.
Following are some of the reactions that may be felt during the session:
Perspiration of hands or feet
Sensation of being Cold or Chilled
Coughing/ Runny nose
Laughing / Crying
Increase in Energy
Most common reaction. The Best Sleep EVER......
There are thirty-three joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and tendons in the foot that hold the structure together and allow it to move through a multitude of environments. The 52 bones in your feet make up about one quarter of all the bones in your body. There are more nerve endings per square centimeter in the foot than in any other part of the body
Each of our ears contains a complete reflex map of our bodies, full of nerve endings and multiple connections to our central nervous system. Like foot and hand, ear reflexology is based on zones and points in the ear that relate to energy centers in the body known as meridians.
There are 6 major pressure points on the ear that help with an array of issues 1. Back and Shoulders 2. Organs 3. Joints 4. Sinuses and Throat 5. Digestion 6 Head and Heart
Reflexology 5 strongly believes that the benefits from reflexology are an essential ingredient to the success of every company.
The effects of stress and minor ailments can snowball if left untreated. This can adversely affect an individual’s performance at work, and impact their home life as they become increasingly tired and lack motivation.
Did you know that prolonged stress also depletes the immune system, leaving staff prone to further sickness?
Should this occur, the cost to a company and to the individual is considerable.
Good Health is Good Business
What are the benefits to your company?
Reflexology 5 has found that while many employers provide excellent working conditions, sickness benefits and support programs, their approach to employees’ health tends to be more traditionally focused on reactive rather than preventative measures.
The role of reflexology in preventative healthcare is rapidly becoming more widely acknowledged.
Let us be clear. Your are your biggest investment. When you take the time to take care of yourself, you benefit you and those who depend on you the most.
Reflexology is not only for clients with chronic health issues it is for everyone.
Reflexology is all about maintenance, rebalancing and cleaning the body. One session will leave you walking on a cloud and with a new perspective.
Take some time to be good to yourself. Let's not forget. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
