SheFinds Solution: Sole Connection with Lavender

When I woke up with a terribly sore and stiff neck for the third time this week, I knew I was in need of some professional help. Sweet relief came in the form of reflexology when I surrendered my feet to Michael, the reflexologist at Lavande Spa in San Francisco. Reflexology is a therapy that dates back to ancient Egypt, India, and China. Reflexologists believe that each region of the foot corresponds to a part of your body, and using their hands to apply pressure to different parts of your feet can relieve ailments like back pain, migraines, and insomnia.

The reflexology treatment experience might vary greatly depending on your body temperament, according to Michael. Parts of your body that need attention will make certain regions of your feet more sensitive. For me, some areas of my feet felt a warm tingle while other areas of my feet just felt more relaxed from the treatment. Reflexologists recommend regular weekly treatments for maximum benefits, but my shoulders felt looser and more relaxed as I walked out of the small spa. You can learn more about reflexology or find a licensed reflexologist in your area at the National Association for Reflexology in America website.

In the mean time, try Barielle Therapy Cucumber Foot Soothericon for warm days when my feet need some cooling from walking around town in my pointy-toe shoes. Massaging the foot soother into your feet at the end of the day is an easy way to de-stress. Soak up aromatherapy and skin soothers with Pharmacopia Lavender Bath Saltsicon and mositurize with Pharmacopia Lavender body lotionicon.
