Anne-Marie Sterckx,R.Ac. provides foot and hand Reflexology and Chinese Medicine Therapies
in Bedford-Halifax-Sackville - Nova Scotia
foot Reflexology works with the reflex zones in the feet.
is a holistic form of therapeutic foot massage where pressure is applied to
specific points on the feet. This pressure stimulates the body's natural
ability to rebuild and repair itself.
This systematic method of foot massage uses a variety of finger and thumb techniques that help to stimulate circulation and promote a deep state of relaxation.
Inducing the relaxation response through reflexology reverses the stress response and enables the body to re-balance, rest, repair and regenerate.
Hand Reflexology is based on the same principles and healing techniques, using the reflex zones on the hands. As with foot reflexology this therapy has a lot of health benefits from pain relief, digestive system support, improved blood circulation and relaxation.
Although most clients choose foot reflexology only, there is benefit in receiving both Hand and Foot reflexology.
The stress response, although beneficial when we need a burst of strength or speed, a sudden stress response can be debilitating, even life threatening when it is left unresolved. Since modern stressors are often symbolic rather then real, stress tends to go unresolved for long periods of time often causing illness.
Reflexology is a non-invasive therapy that requires only the removal of your shoes and socks. This makes it a convenient treatment which may be suitable for people who may not be comfortable with full-body techniques.
Foot and Hand Reflexology can be combined with other TCM therapies in one session; Acupuncture, Cupping, Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Tui-Na, Gua-Sha, and electric nerve stimulation.

Q I feel healthy and do not suffer from any condition, will I still benefit from a reflexology treatment?
A Yes, foot or hand reflexology stimulates all organs and brain function. It re balances the body by interacting with the meridians and channels, it redirects static or stagnated energy fields. It resets the nervous system which results in a total relaxed state.
