Reflexology

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.

How does Reflexology work?

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.

What are the benefits from a Reflexology Session?

  • Provides rest to a body to assist in healing and balance; and, it is during rest and sleep that we heal
  • Known to reduce the unpleasantness of illness and cancer treatment i.e., pain reduction, nausea, diarrhea, constipation and much more
  • Effective for pain management as it enhances the release of endorphins
  • Improves sleep
  • Improves digestion and elimination
  • Reflexology can be used as both a preventative and restorative health maintenance
  • Plus... it feels so good!!!

When not to have Reflexology

  • If you have a blood clot
  • If you have any foot or lower leg open ulcers, wounds, burns or recent foot/leg surgery. In these cases, Reflexology can be provided on the hands.

LORENE BOTTOMS
Certified Reflexologist and Yoga Instructor

About Lorene: Sharing the gifts of Reflexology, Yoga and Meditation has been a privilege, allowing me to guide my clients on their health journey. These are ancient and timeless practices. My goal is to share them, and empower others in taking active roles in attaining more optimal health. My first experiences of the holistic practices were with yoga, sacred hula dance, tai chi and chanting. Once you are touched and opened, there is no going back. The spark was ignited, and I inherently knew more was in store! In 1998 Yoga, and then in 2008 Reflexology formally began as an adjunct to my career as a special education teacher. Gradually they grew into an integral and then sole part of my professional life. In July of 2018 I moved to Bucks County from Brooklyn, N.Y. I look forward to connecting with and making a difference in others' lives through these methods. In Reflexology I am Certified and trained in working on the feet, ears and face, and am certified in Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Pre-natal Yoga.

Reflexology: As intentional and pressurized touch is applied to the, i.e., feet, the entire body is stimulated and positively effected. This also results in deep relaxation, fostering the natural self healing process in order to maintain balance and well being. During our time together, I create an individualized session to support your whole body, mind and spirit, and emphasize areas of concern to bring relief and promote healing. My clients have always been delightfully surprised that working within a small area can reap such results.

"My reflexology session with Lorene was remarkable. I had a feeling of great neck release, and the deepest relaxation I ever experienced. I have had reflexology before, but this was the best by far."
- Maria B.

"I have had the good fortune of taking yoga and meditation classes, and receiving reflexology sessions with Lorene. She is extremely encouraging and so highly skilled. In terms of reflexology, Lorene's reassuring and calming manner helped me relax enough to have my first positive experience with 'touch'. I then sought and welcomed regular sessions that have made long lasting effects on my well being. Aside from the actual sessions, Lorene always offers suggestions and teaches me things to do to support myself both in between sessions and in general. I really can't articulate all of the things I am grateful for."
