Reflexology is a type of therapeutic foot massage that relaxes and releases tension from the entire body. Using a soothing touch on the feet and gentle movements of the legs, reflexology may elicit a number of effects that vary from person to person, including:

  • physical and mental relaxation
  • pain relief
  • emotional release
  • anxiety reduction
  • better sleep

While it is not a cure for any disease or condition, many clients find that reflexology is a beneficial addition to their physical and mental health routines. Clients report that sessions can “create space” for the relaxation, healing, centering, and other changes they are trying to make in their lives.

Emily Springfield began studying reflexology in 2017. Her practice draws from Reflexolo-chi, t’ai chi healing, yoga, and western energy and musculoskeletal techniques.

This was the first day in a while that I didn’t have any Achilles soreness as I walked down the stairs in the morning.


My anxiety was nonexistent for days after my session.
