REFLEXOLOGY: is both an art and a science that is at least 2,000 years old.  It is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in your feet and hands that directly correspond to all parts of your body.    Applying gentle pressure to specific areas helps unblock energy, improves circulation, releases toxins and greatly reduces stress.
