Wide ranging benefits and long-lasting

The benefits are wide-ranging and long-lasting. The theory behind this ancient form of body work (or massage) is that the body will nurture and repair itself once released from stress. Beyond putting you in a state of deep relaxation, reflexology may benefit with Pain Reduction, Circulation, Facial Beauty and much more.

In a typical reflexology session I gently and carefully use my hands, and sticks of wood for Thai Reflexology, to assist in massaging your feet. The theory supporting this art is that we have reflex points that correspond to the body’s organs (liver, kidneys, lungs etc.) and systems of the body (lymphatic, endocrine, muscular, etc.), so by applying pressure to these reflexes we are positively affecting our organs.

The toxins produced when our body’s energy is out-of-balance impacts our entire health. When stressed, our body copes by producing short term defense mechanisms. Over time, if not treated holistically, these toxins can have serious long term affects such as heart disease, ulcers, stroke, and other complications. When you are in sync, meaning when you are relaxed and your energy is balanced, your body works more efficiently so you are able to enjoy life to its fullest.

“In 2000 I had an epidural to remove a tumour in my bladder, the next morning my toes and soles on both feet were numb. This never went away obviously they had hit my spine. Ten years later I decided to try reflexology. After my first treatment I had quite noticeable relief. After the second treatment my left foot was nearly normal again, my right foot is noticeably better and I will continue the treatments. I would recommend trying reflexology to anyone with foot problems.”

Beyond helping to relieve stress and tension, what other benefits does reflexology offer?

I am happy to tell you that reflexology is a non-evasive therapy used to alleviate so many common ailments, from headaches to sinus congestion, from sore aching feet to sore throats, insomnia, constipation, and more. Read my blog to learn about all the wonderful ways reflexology contributes to your well-being and improves your quality of life.

Believe it and feel it! Dien Chan (also called facial or multi-reflexology, or face therapy), is here in Calgary to serve you.

Similar to the principles that support reflexology, facial reflexology focuses on manipulating 257 points and reflex zones (see illustration below) located in the face. Simulating them with hands and gentle tools helps alleviate neck and back pain, and other discomforts. It’s aim is to promote facial rejuvenation, as well as bolster the state of our health and well-being. To more fully describe it:

By combining the theories of I-Ching and Tao, and relying on detailed observation of similarities and differences in facial shape, plus clinical trials on thousands of patients, Professor Châu created a map to show the fixed points of his system called Dien Chan. In 1984, he proved that pressure point simulation has rapid and profound effects. As a result, he no longer needed to use acupuncture needles in his treatments.

Professor Châu created 25 diagrams or face charts to illustrate various ways to receive relief from:

  • Migraines
  • Digestive complaints
  • Lumbago
  • Poor Circulation
  • Cramps
  • Sciatica
  • Torticollis or twisted neck
  • Weight loss
  • Wrinkle removal
  • Cellulite loss; and so many more distresses.

In partnership with using hands, fingers and thumbs to stimulate the facial reflex points, gentle tools are used too.

This equipment is handmade by artisans in  Vietnam, who use only sustainable materials such as wood, horn (recovered from farm animals at the end of their natural life), and high quality metals.

Indian Foot Massage also known as Kansa Vatki (KV) Foot Massage, or Padabhyanga Massage, is lusciously therapeutic. It emerges out of India where Ayurveda, the ancient system of Indian medicine, was developed. The health of your feet mirror your general health as foot ailments can be in initial signs that other health problems are emerging. Therefore, by massaging your feet I’m treating your whole body as your nerves, blood and lymph vessels run up and down your spine to all the other regions of your body.

Indian Foot Massage is given while you lie on a massage table. The treatment includes using a small metal bowl, made of copper, tin and zinc, and warm ghee or clarified butter. The treatment begins with some relaxing foot and lower leg massage. The heart of the therapy involves rubbing the soles of the feet with this bowl, ending with a sequence of further massages. This entire treatment aims to detoxify and re-balance the body’s energy.

What better way to be awarded the release of stress and tension in these body regions that often can be so stiff and sore? As we know, the brain is the core of the nervous system. By massaging the scalp and neck, I’m treating your whole body as your nerves, blood and lymph vessels run down your spine to all the other regions of your body.

Pregnancy should never be considered an ailment or a burden. It is a very special time in a woman’s life. Yes, pregnancy is a long period that can be tiring; it involves having raging emotions, fear, anxiety and stress. I try to put in a lot of time and effort into educating expectant mothers about how it’s possible to have a safe and enjoyable pregnancy, and create the best environment for a safe and successful birth. The hormonal changes that occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy provoke many physiological changes. When the following symptoms appear, reflexology can help to restore homeostasis or balance to the body, working to alleviate:

Anaemia, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, edema, blood pressure issues, constipation, hemorrhoids, and backache.

Reflexology to induce labour is used to help deliver a child using acupressure points and other reflexology techniques to provide a woman with one of the more enjoyable, calming and pleasing methods used to aid labour. Naturally induced labour using reflexology works best when the expectant mother and baby are ready for birth. This method often help prepare the cervix to ripen so labour is quicker and easier. This is for women who are overdue and want to start labour the natural way.

Reflexology energizes you. It gives you a healthier and often easier pregnancy with the added benefit of offering a greater chance of experiencing a shorter, easier labour and post-natal recovery. Scheduling a few reflexology sessions while you are pregnant is the perfect opportunity to unwind and focus on yourself and your unborn child.

Reflexology is one of the safest most supportive therapies for pregnant women AND is effective postpartum too both mother and baby. When you are both are calm and relaxed it helps to ensure better mother-child bonding, and easier breastfeeding. It assists with:

  • The baby latching on
  • Post-epidural pain
  • Recovery following a cesarean birth
  • Calms and relaxes and revitalizes mother and baby
  • Balances and harmonizes the body and mind after giving birth

“I had the pleasure of working with Lis during my second and third trimester of my pregnancy. With this being my first baby, my body was constantly changing and my back and hips began to feel a lot of discomfort and pain. After seeing a chiropractor unsuccessfully for over six weeks I thought I would try some maternity reflexology as I heard good things and it seemed to relate to my belief systems about how the body and mind is connected.

To my surprise, from the very first visit I felt a big change. My back and hips almost immediately started to feel loose allowing more movement and much less pain. I also felt an incredible sense of relaxation before, after, and during our sessions which was something I began to really look forward to on a weekly basis.

I delivered a healthy, beautiful baby boy one day after my due date. Three days prior I had seen Lis and asked her to do a treatment specifically to help along and perhaps induce labour as I was ready to give birth. I remember leaving the session feeling almost light headed and so relaxed and at peace. Lis mentioned to me that she worked on my uterus and used a lot of compassion during our session and to this day I truly believe she did. It was one of the most powerful and beautiful sessions we had ever shared.

My labour and birth was nothing short of incredible. I was in labour for just under seven hours from start to finish and was able to endure the whole process drug free. It was the hardest test I had ever put my body through physically, and I was able to meditate through the very intense and frequent contractions. My sister and husband who were by my side the whole time said it was almost as if I had left the room during the contractions as my mind and focus went to another place.

I believe my labour and delivery story was as successful as it was because of the work I had done with Lis during my pregnancy. Reflexology prepared me for the birth of my son not only physically, but mentally and spiritually. Being connected to your body the way you are in a session with Lis brings great benefits to your health and I am forever grateful for having her in my life.”

Kelley Abbey, Calgary, Alberta

In a typical reflexology session, Lis will apply pressure using her fingers and thumbs to the reflex points that are specific to the pain you’re experiencing, whether you have neck and shoulder pain, sore feet, back pain, insomnia, headaches or migraines, and more. Reflexology works with the central nervous system. It’s a form of bodywork where gentle to firm pressure is applied to specific areas or reflex points on the face and feet that, when targeted, transmit a calming message to the central nervous system.

The body responds in kind by adjusting its pain, stress, and tension levels. Don’t live through the pain. Instead, let reflexology alleviate your pain to enhance your health and well-being.

“I have been a client of Lis’s for well over a year. She is a very professional, compassionate person and I can say that I feel my overall health has improved because of her treatments. She is very knowledgeable and I feel confident that her treatment is helping me move in the right direction for my health.” ~ Monica S.

Today we are exposed to more toxins in the environment as ever before. With the vast array of pesticides, herbicides, additives, preservatives, and chemicals that pervade our water, air and food, the body can become bombarded and overloaded with toxins. These toxins and chemicals get stored in our joints, organs, arteries, nerves and tissues, disrupting their function and creating an environment for disease, allergies and immune system breakdowns. An ionic cleanse foot spa provides a thorough and efficient way to detoxify the body of these wastes, helping you to maintain high energy levels and long term wellness.

How does it work? The foot spa generates a stream of positive and negative ions, or charged atoms, which attract and attach themselves to oppositely charged toxic particles. It cleanses our cells and charges them up as if they were tiny batteries. Some of you will immediately feel more energy immediately, while others will feel their energy increasing over time. Through osmosis, toxins are drawn out of the body through the 2,000 pores in our fee. Over the course of a thirty minute session, the water in the foot spa will change from clear to something else. The toxins gathering in the foot spa water is only about 10% of the total detox that is occurring; the remaining 90% happens in your body up to several days after treatment.

The benefits of receiving an ionic foot spa are numerous.

Many people with pain, edema, gout and swollen or deteriorating joints report considerable symptomatic relief after experiencing an ionic foot spa session. It is important to note that this treatment does not heal or cure any disease or condition. Rather it’s a valuable way of assisting the body to detoxify different organs and tissues, which may aid the healing process, and improve your quality of life. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Increasing energy and vitality;
  • Reduces stress
  • Normalizes blood pressure and increases circulation
  • Offers pain relief
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Alleviates joint pain
Each session takes 30 minutes. As with any method of detoxification, It may often take several sessions to obtain the best results. Because the Dyna-Chi Ionic Foot Spa is gentle, sessions can be scheduled every other day, but once a week is considered quite adequate. A complementary water and electrolyte sachet is given at end of each session.
