What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is an opportunity to work your whole body and mind, through accessing pressure points on the feet and lower legs. This process activates nerve pathways, affecting mind/brain and body, massages organs, facilitates circulation, supports the lymphatic system, releases blocks, helps regulate internal rhythms and reduces pain, all creating pathways for healing to take place. These pressure points are like portals to the while body’s internal “workings”, allowing access for supporting and encouraging optimum health and wellness.
Our bodies have amazing sustainable and recuperative powers. In reflexology, as other healing modalities, there is an understanding that given time and encouragement, the body and mind will have the opportunity to work together to improve, rejuvenate, restore, and heal.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy carried out by applying pressure to specific reflex points on the feet which correspond to parts of the body. A treatment works the whole person by stimulating the nerve endings, energy channels and vascular flow to the various organs and structures within the body. Reflexology is a non-invasive technique requiring only the removal of socks and shoes. Effective and powerful, reflexology dramatically reduces the feelings of stress and tension, and brings a natural state of balance to the mind and the body. Reflexology helps to restore balance in the body, and encourage the body to heal itself.
Reflexology can be used to treat anyone, young or old and pregnant moms after 12 weeks.

Indian Head Massage
The journey to the Spiritual and Healing path began more than 20 years ago when two serious health issues led Leslie to discover the power of meditation, holistic healing and positive thought. It became very apparent that healing the physical body also required healing of mind and spirit too. Blessed by having worked with several gifted Healers, and after having her own, “AHA” moment in 2009, she realized that providing the healing would be the greater gift and thus began her training and holistic career. She also continues to take classes regularly adding new tools to the belt!
