Can Foot Reflexology help with anxiety?

Can reflexology help with anxiety?
The special massage used by reflexologists unblocks nerve endings in the feet, rebalances the lymphatic and endocrine system and boosts the circulation. 
In this way, reflexology induces a state of calm throughout your body and mind, leaving you feeling less stressed and anxious.

Reflexology $65/hour, super relaxing

 What is Reflexology?

A harmless therapy using finger pressure on specific points of your feet corresponding with parts of the body. I have studied the Eunice D. Ingham Method.

Therapists can stimulate the body to heal itself to return to harmony and balance in your life.
Reflexology is a holistic health treatment (working on the whole body not just a sore spot).

I had a 75 minute Reflexology and leg massage, it was very relaxing. I felt tension in my body go away.  I  highly recommend Karin Lummis studio for massage treatments.
 Paulette, Motueka

Hour              $65
75 minutes    $80 including gentle lower leg massage.

For an appointment

Fundamentally, mindful eating involves:

  • engaging your senses by noticing colors, smells, sounds, textures, and flavors
  • learning to cope with guilt and anxiety about food
  • eating to maintain overall health and well-being
  • noticing the effects food has on your feelings and figure
  • appreciating your food
