Reflexology and Massage..What’s the difference???

Reflexology on the hands

Both reflexology and traditional massage are natural healing arts that are deeply relaxing, help to relieve stress, and promote circulation. In traditional massage various techniques are used to manipulate the muscles and connective tissue. Reflexology does not necessarily focus on the muscles.  Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflexes on the body which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Many therapists work on the hands and feet because they contain the highest concentration of points and are easy to access. There are several methods that can be used to work the reflex points, to help to restore balance to the related areas and systems of the body.

Reflexology is an ancient art. The earliest known references to reflexology in history date back to inscriptions found in the tombs in Egypt.

At Soakology, our licensed massage therapists perform traditional foot/lower leg massage in 20 and 40 minute massages.  Reflexology can be done in 40 or 60 minute sessions.  Both of these services can be paired with any of the Foot Soaks that we offer for the ultimate relaxing experience!
