If you work from home or at the office facing in front of the computer screen for a long period of time, the tendency is if you have a bad sitting posture, you will end up hunching over your chair. If you constantly slouch you will end up hurting your back and also your shoulders. So, if you are stuck sitting all day, take five-minute breaks from sitting every 30 to 45 minutes, stand up and walk around the area. Try also to stretch your back, neck, and shoulders. If subsequent breaks are impossible because of your work overload, how about a day off and a pampered, relaxing experience at a reflexology massage in Chesapeake, Virginia?
Let Relax the Feet restore vitality to your body and enjoy an hour or more of applying pressure to your tensed muscles and painful extremities. Our qualified reflexologists will help you channel a harmonious connection between your mind and body.
Siked to hang loose, destress, and spoil your body with a rejuvenating massage? Expect the following on your first visit!
- Meet the reflexologist
A practitioner will conduct a brief health history to assess whether reflexology is appropriate for you or not. He or she will explain about reflexology, how is it done, and what happens in a session. The goal of reflexology is to ease tensed and strained muscles and keep a balanced mind and body. It should not be indicated as a medical treatment for your illness. You may be asked to sign a consent form. Ask questions if necessary.
- Reflexology sessions
You will be asked to lie or sit down by the reflexologists, with your clothes on and expose only your feet. The practitioner will soak your feet with warm water, dry it, and may or may not apply lotion (depending on your personal preference). He or she will examine for rashes, plantar warts, open wounds or bunions that can hamper the treatment. During sessions at Relax the Feet, we play a soothing music and keep a relaxed atmosphere to give you that restful ambiance. Our therapy sessions can last from 60 to 120 minutes, completely up to you! Yet definitely, the longer the better.
- Massage commences
When therapy starts, it does not target on the areas where you are having problems with (for example headaches, sciatica, etc.), the reflexologist concentrates on the standard order of how reflexology works (covering entire areas) beginning from your toes running towards your foot. Gentle pressure is applied working around pressure points on your foot to allow the release of the tension generating a relaxed body response.
- Positive reactions after sessions
Reactions can vary from person to person and some of these are the following: pain relief, enhanced mobility in joints, energised feeling, bowel movements, spots or rashes (toxin release effect), or tiredness (that feeling of a needed rest for the body).
