Foot Tuina Therapy
Stay Healthy Institute- Phoenix/Mesa/Tucson, Arizona
What is Foot Tuina Reflexology?
In Ancient China and Japan & India Micro-systems included hands / feet & Head. These Micro-systems are interlinked with the entire body and are used for both Therapy or Preventive Health Care as well as as Relaxation which the ancients knew was a form of Preventive Medicine. The added benefit of these ancient Tuina Massages is that there is no need to disrobe & since these systems are interlinked with Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine & the Power it holds in aiding healing.
Bodywork from Thailand is a powerful Medicine. It is massage that has a 5000 yr history and is used by many for Stress relief plus to address health concerns. Our Integrative Reflexology is a marriage between the ancient healing arts of Reflexology, Chinese Tuina, Japanese Shiatsu and Indian ayurvedic yoga. When we do Foot Reflexology we are still working on a meridian so a session will cross up to the Knee. Reflexology is offered either on a massage table or chair. Working with the feet, lower leg and knees, this 5,000 year old, highly reputed session frees up blocked energy within the body’s many sens lines (Thai- based meridians) to produce a deep and unique feeling of balance, relaxation and well-being.
Thai Foot Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumbs and fingers to stimulate nerve endings in the foot, hands and ears. Its basic philosophy is that the foot, hands and ears each hold reflex areas that mirror and connect to all parts of the body. Nerve ending stimulation helps to eliminate energy blockages to different parts of the body, including organs and glands. These energy blockages are thought to produce pain or disease in the related areas and by moving energy, or ‘chi’, through the body the results can be quite profound.
Over 50,000 nerves find their way down to the feet! Hence, a proper foot reflexology session can leave a client speechlessly in total relaxation and for some who are really in tune with their bodies the benefits cross even further into Healing organ systems ! Many people who are in tune with their bodies use the sessions to nudge the body into the right direction – and it often appears to work. Most people use the sessions along with therapy from other health providers as there really are few to no contraindications to Foot reflexology.
What to Expect?
During a typical Foot Massage session a Thai practitioner will apply a special Thai balm and use a variety of hands-on techniques including graceful two handed palm movements, stretches, circular massage movements and thumb pressure. The Practitioner needs to have very strong hands and fingers so as to adjust pressure into specific acupressure /acupuncture areas so as to stimulate organ reflex points on the soles of the feet. Clients leave the session feeling relaxed, balanced and invigorated.
To receive this Foot Reflexology massage according to tradition, it is important to be comfortably seated with the feet resting on a footstool.
A mix of creme and oils are progressively applied on the feet and legs for a duration of an hour.
When we are aware that our feet support 100% of our body weight and that 7000 steps on average are inflicted upon them daily… we owe them the respect that they deserve!
2 inches Taller !
I get therapy weekly with Stay Healthy Institute and I request Anees.
I have been going because it just feels good- but something amazing happened when i went to see my doctor. He says, Im standing an entire 2 inches taller !
Needless to say my doctor says, \"Keep doing what your doing\"
I got a gift card to see Stay Healthy Institute. My best friend kara who loves body work from him for her tight back gave it to me as a Wedding Gift.
Since I did not have any issues I selected to get a Relaxation Session Rather than a Medical Session. OMG I didnt get a traditional Massage I was clothed the entire time and it was amazing- I will be back again.
His hands are like butter- and he wringged stress from my body I did not even know was there !
