She deeply believes in the power of touch and her approach is to deliver a service that calms the mind, spirit, and refreshes.
Reflexology is not only a wonderful technique to help sore feet but also assists in the total health of the body. It helps the body by pressure points in the feet which correlates to different areas of the body. It can balance energy flow throughout the body and alleviate ailments through foot reflexology.
