Reflexology Benefits

foot-reflexology-chart-top-of-foot

Whether you’re an athlete, work full time, or are a stay at home parent, a lot of weight and stress are put on your feet. This causes stress to be distributed throughout your body and manifest in different ways. If you experience neck or back pain it may be because of the amount of walking or standing that you do throughout the day. One approach that people have taken to the pain and stress they experience in their body is massages. They’re great but are even more effective with a reflexology session.

 

 

At Bella Vita Spa and Salon, for the month of March, we will be offering a free 15 minute reflexology with a 90 minute massage. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of reflexology!

 

 

The Benefits of Reflexology:

Reflexology is an alternative treatment for a variety of conditions. It has been practiced for thousands of years. Most notably by the ancient Chinese and Egyptians.

 

 

Reflexology involves the therapist applying pressure to specific areas in the hands, feet, and ears that affect certain reflex areas of the body. A few of the benefits are:

 

 

Nerve Function – As you age your nerve endings become less sensitive. Reflexology is able to stimulate over 7,000 nerve endings in a single session causing them to see an increase in function.
Energy Levels – Reflexology aligns the functioning of various organs and muscle systems and will cause an increase in your metabolism and energy creation process within your body. This is great if you are needing a boost in energy because you feel sluggish.
Circulation – The most recognized benefit of reflexology is the improvement of circulation throughout the body. This means that blood and oxygen are cycled throughout the body more effectively. With more oxygen reaching your vital organs you optimize their function and further increase your metabolism.

 

 

These are just a few of the benefits of reflexology. If you would like to read more on the subject Organic Facts has a detailed article that is a great read for anyone new to the practice of reflexology.

 

 

If you’ve never experienced reflexology and are interested in experiencing a session for the first time, or have been enjoying its benefits for a while, make sure you do not miss out on this great deal Bella Vita Spa and Salon has going on for the month of March. With any 90 minute massage or your choice, you will get a free 15 minute reflexology session. Please contact us through our website or call us at (918) 369-8482.

Show Your Tootsies Some Love

February is “Fabulous Feet” month at Bella Vita Spa and Salon, because how you care for your feet during the winter is what you’ll be seeing in the summer! During the cold, winter months, when our feet are hidden and confined in Uggs, Nike’s or other close-toed shoes, we tend to forget about them. However, it’s during this time that nails can become dry and brittle, and calluses and corns are at their worst. This is why we recommend pedicures on a monthly basis that include:

  • Exfoliation: to keep feet soft and hydrated.
  • Nail care: to prevent painful splitting and breakage.
  • Reflexology: to loosen feet muscles, assist in joint performance and increase blood circulation in the feet and toes.

cmh2goClear My Head To Go

Convenient liquid roll-on version of Clear My Head Herbal Inhalation.

  • Economical & Convenient roll-on ensures you’ll get the RIGHT amount every time

  • Apply to sinus areas as needed
  • Quick relief for congestion

  • .35 ounces of quality Jojoba oil and pure essential oils

What do the essential oils do?

Sinusitis most often develops after a cold (a viral infection) and may improve on its own with home treatment. More than half of sinus infections improve on their own, but sometimes they develop into a bacterial infection. Swelling, inflammation, and mucus production caused by the cold can lead to blockage in the nasal passages, which may encourage the growth of bacteria. The powerful essential oils in Clear My Head can help kill both viruses and bacteria – keeping a secondary (the yellow and green mucus) less likely.

Get Whipped! Shea Body Butter

You’ve probably heard a lot of buzz about Shea (pronounced “shay”) Butter lately, and that’s because it is well deserved. Intensely rich, this body butter will sink deep into the skin’s tissue for all-day moisturizing and unparalleled softness, chasing away any chance of winter dryness or cracked, chapped skin.

Get Whipped!™ is made with pure Certified Organic Shea Butter, which we’ve whipped and whipped to a lighter, friendlier, more spreadable texture.

Sea Salt Glow

Our exfoliating, moisturizing, skin-smoothing sea salt glow is a whole-body spa treatment in one simple step! For a warming treat, use on dull, dry skin to reveal your own naturally healthy, vibrant, glowing complexion.

How it Works: WoodSprite Sea Salt Glows are made with finer salts than most of our competitors. This results in gentler exfoliation and smoother skin. Salt Glows work by exfoliating dead skin cells, increasing blood flow and stimulating skin cell renewal, while deeply moisturizing skin with nourishing oils. Our combination of oils is unique; only the finest exotic nut and fruit oils are chosen for their rich vitamin content and quick absorption. Finally, pure essential oils uplift your spirits while toning and stimulating your satiny new skin!
