Reflexology, acupuncture and massage all have their roots based in Chinese medicine and share the concept of using pressure points on the body to relieve pain and promote the body’s ability to heal itself.


The underlying theory is that there are predefined pressure points or "reflex areas" on the feet and hands that are connected energetically to specific organs and body parts through energy channels in the body. By stimulating these pressure points the corresponding body areas will experience a beneficial effect through the nervous system. By applying pressure to these reflex areas, it’s possible to remove energy blockages and promote health in the related body area.


At Rise Acupuncture we often combine reflexology with acupuncture and massage with the purpose of promoting wellness in the whole body. Reflexology can help to balance the nervous system, stimulate the release of endorphins to reduce pain and stress, manipulate muscles and other soft tissues to improve circulation and heal injuries in the area or to induce overall relaxation.



Some conditions reflexology may help with include:


* Stress * Headaches and migraines


* Digestive disorders


* Arthritis * Insomnia


* Sports injuries
