Reflexology massage has been practiced as a powerful complementary therapy for over 5,000 years.

The origins of reflexology massage have been traced back to 2500 BC in ancient Egypt. Evidence suggests in the ancient documentation that reflexology may have been used as it illustrates medical ancient Egyptian practitioners performing hand and foot treatments to patients.

The theory behind reflexology is that specific points of the foot correspond to certain organs and systems of the body. In reflexology massage, it is believed that the pressure applied to these points on the foot brings healing and relaxation to the corresponding body area.

Reflexology provided by a trained practitioner is believed to increase energy, aid relaxation, boost circulation, and eliminate toxins from the body.

What To Expect During a Reflexology Massage Treatment Session in Our Wellness Center in Portsmouth, NH

Massage & Wellness Collective provides a sanctuary that is the ideal setting for reflexology treatments. A trained reflexology practitioner provides measured pressure on specific points on the hands and feet to stimulate the thousands of nerve endings called “reflex points.” The pressure applied releases blockages in corresponding areas of the body to support the body through injury, pain, and illness.

Reflexology is a non-invasive treatment that perfectly complements any massage and wellness treatment that addresses various injuries and illnesses. With a relaxed atmosphere, our reflexology treatments can also provide benefits for your mental well-being as well as help address your health issues.


Benefits of Reflexology Treatment in Portsmouth, NH

With the help of experienced and trained reflexology practitioners, you can enjoy the following benefits of reflexology in our massage and wellness center in Portsmouth, NH:

Ease Pain Caused by Arthritis

The most popular benefit of reflexology massage is a complementary therapy to help relieve pain associated with inflammation in joints, such as the wrists, knees, and hips. For instance, to relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis in the knee joint, a practitioner works on the knee reflex point in the foot. They may also work on the spine reflex points on the foot to strengthen the spine and address excess pressure on the knees.

Eliminates Toxin Buildup in Various Areas of Your Body

You may notice tenderness in certain areas of your feet during a reflexology session. These tender spots correspond to congestion in other parts of your body. These congestions also contain toxin buildup and blockages. By applying pressure on these points, reflexology helps release blocked energy in specific areas to help detoxify your body.

Aids Relaxation and Eases Anxiety

Combined with the relaxed atmosphere provided by our Portsmouth wellness center, the therapeutic touch provided by reflexology helps people achieve a deeper state of relaxation. The firm pressure applied to the feet during the session results in a loosening of tension through the mind and body.

Helps Relieve Pain

Reflexology works with thousands of nerve endings and reflex points on the feet and hands that result in pain relief in specific points of the body. Reflexology effectively addresses headaches, stomach and digestive pain, muscle and joint pains, and fibromyalgia.

Reflexology Massage Helps Increase Energy

The primary goal of reflexology is to restore the energy balance throughout the body. By helping remove blockages, reflexology boosts the body’s ability to heal itself and return bodily systems back to proper function. As a result, people feel better and more energetic. Another way of increasing energy is by addressing fatigue by stimulating points on the feet and hands. For instance, by stimulating the reflex point on the hands or feet corresponding to the adrenal gland, the recipient can feel a boost of energy after suffering from exhaustion.
