The End of the Line!
In Eastern Medicine, the hands and the feet play a more complex role than they do in Western Philosophies. We are brought up to tend to our nails and try to avoid blisters. Eastern philosophies hold that our hands and feet contain points and regions that correspond very specifically to regions and lines of energy in our bodies. Work on these points can influence our body systemically. If you have never had a foot massage or hand massage, especially one that involves heat and cryotherapy, I highly recommend it. These sessions are especially good if you are feeling drained, stressed, anxious or depressed. Come in and try a 50-minute session on your feet or hands or BOTH and experience the amazing difference your whole body will notice.
