The International Academy of Medical Reflexology's Patented Definition for Medical Reflexology is:
Medical Reflexology is a complementary, biological, integrative, blended health science, through which an exercise pressure is applied to reflex areas formed by 7,200 nerve endings in each hand and foot, encouraging improved instruction to each and every specific organ, gland, and part of the body, thus persuading the body to biologically correct, strengthen, and reinforce itself, to reach balance, normalization and homeostasis.
Reflexology allows the body to self-correct and every time a person has a reflexology session, it is an examination, an evaluation, or a re-evaluation of the entire body and all its 12 systems. Reflexology improves the nerve, blood and lymphatic supply. The goals of reflexology are to re-educate, re-pattern and re-condition the nerves. When the nerves improve, the instruction improves, the body must improve, thus, an overall health enhancement therapy program through Medical Reflexology.
R.N. and Medical Reflexologist
"I am a proud graduate of the International Academy of Medical Reflexology. As a Registered Nurse, Medical Reflexologist and a Reiki Master Practitioner, I have learned that living beings have enormous wisdom to self correct and balance. I appreciate the body's wisdom every time I provide Reflexology to those I serve. The success of Medical Reflexology can be seen in many case studies. It is safe, non-invasive and a necessity to maintain a healthy body. Medical Reflexology compliments all health care."
"Julia is an amazing practitioner. I've looked a long time to find a reflexologist who brings superior technical knowledge to the practice as well as having a spiritual, healer side. She brings it all. I look to Julia to mend both my body and soul. So thankful I found her."

"After a foot reflexology with Julia, I feel like I've had a whole body massage. I love hearing her comments afterwards to see what areas need more attention."
"I started reflexology to improve my overall health. Even after my first visit, I was so extremely impressed. Prior to walking into the visit, I had not given Julia much information about my medical background, or prior issues, because they weren't a nagging concern for me. However, once Julia was finished the session, she named each of the concerns she had found - she hit the nail on the head for every medical issue I have ever experienced & even some I had always swept under the rug and ignored. It was as if she read my medical records, or was briefed on any complaint I had ever shared with my primary care doctors! A true mind reader through the feet. Over the years, I have spent so much money and time going to different specialists visits to diagnose and fix problems (not always with success). But, Julia managed to do this for a fraction of the cost in just under an hour. To think - if I had only found her sooner! After continuing reflexology with Julia, my body feels better, ailments have subsided, I am overall calmer, and I have a better understanding of how to help my body once I leave her office. With her combination of experience in the medical field, her education, and her kind personality, she is truly a talented health care professional that I would recommend to everyone in my life."
