Reflexology (Excerpt from Annie Glenn's brochure)
Restore Health Using the Non-Invasive Natural Healing Map of Your Own Body
Reflexology is the practice of using therapeutic touch techniques on reflex maps that resemble the shape of the human body and that are found on the feet, hands, and outer ears. Pressure is applied to the outer ears, hands and feet (by use of maps) channeling energy to parts of the body that are affected.
By viewing our miraculous bodies as being connected via the nervous system, we can understand how reflexology works. The same tissue that our internal organs are comprised of, is connected via the cerebro- spinal fluid and shows up as a map of our organs and skeletal system on our extremities: feet, hands, and outer ears. When the feet, hands, and outer ears are massaged or “reflexed” circulation is brought to the body parts that correlate to the maps.
During the first session you are requested to fill out a health history questionnaire. Then you either sit in a recliner chair or lay on your back on a massage table. Socks and shoes are removed and soft music is played in the background. The hands, ears, and feet are then thoroughly massaged or what is known as reflexed. This is your time and if you prefer silence, conversation, or to ask questions it is up to you. A full session takes an hour.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Reflexology has changed my life. ‘Relax’ was just not in my life. Now I have just to think about being on the table in Annie's very capable hands and I start to relax. She can get rid of a migraine that only a trip to the emergency room and hours of sleep used to help. My daughter has also benefited from sessions with Annie. She has severe allergies and seems to always have a cold or sinus infection. Since she started with Annie, about eight months ago, she has only been sick twice! Her respiratory and immunity systems have improved greatly! We can't say enough how Annie has helped our health and lives improve.” ~Debbie
“Well, I have to let you know the fantastic news, after you left (and that wonderful reflexology session) I took a solid 45 min nap. It was an incredibly deep sleep. Last night I went to bed around 10, fell asleep and did not wake up until 5:45! I feel rested today. Yippee!" ~Sarah
“When I had my first session of Reflexology by Annie Glenn I immediately knew that she also had the gift of very healing hands. Intuitively she knew how much pressure to apply to make my pains go away and at the same time relax and revitalize me. Annie is truly a joy and is just magical. She is very giving of her time and knowledge and genuinely cares about making one feel improvement in all areas. I am so grateful for Annie giving a quality life back to me.” ~Robin
