Reflexology & Wellness
Imagine walking into a softly lighted, tastefully appointed room, taking off only your shoes and socks, sitting in a comfortably cushioned reflexology chair, or a massage table, and for the next hour, while a Licensed Reflexologist nurturingly works on your feet, you experience profound relaxation as wave after wave of accumulated tension and stresses leave your body. You walk away feeling more relaxed and better than you felt for quite a while.

What is Reflexology
Reflexology is the application of specific pressure by the use of the practitioner's hands, thumbs, and fingers to reflex points in the client's hands, feet and outer ears, using alternating pressure, and such techniques as thumb walking, finger walking, hook and back up, and rotation on a reflex.
...And what does that mean?
A reflexology session with Annette involves you comfortably sitting in a reflexology chair. As you relax for 30, 60, or 90 minutes, Annette will use her hands and fingers to thumb-and-finger walk all over your feet and/or ears to apply proper pressure to your reflex points to assist in relieving bodily congestion and tension. These reflexes correspond to every gland, organ, system, and region of your body. By working on your feet reflexes, Annette can help influence total body relaxation, stress reduction, and increased circulation as your body instinctively strives to attain and maintain a healthy state of natural balance known as homeostasis. It is important to point out that reflexology is NOT massage. Reflexology is NOT a foot-rub. Massage therapists perform massage and reflexologists perform reflexology.
The bottom line is...It is Effective and it Feels Good.
What does it cost?
30 minutes $35 / 60 minutes $65 / 90 minutes $90
