Reflexology is a popular therapy that was first introduced to the west in the early twentieth century as "zone therapy." This technique involves the physical act of applying pressure to the body, with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. Specific points are targeted and worked on in order to send signals to the brain and balance the nervous system. Today, reflexology therapy not only targets the hands and feet, but also the entire back in order to improve health benefits and promote relaxation. Acupressure and deep tissue techniques are applied to the entire body, starting from the feet and legs and working up to the arms, ears, and head. Used sometimes an alternative to Western medicinal treatment, reflexology works wonders as it can heal not only the mind but also the body and its aches.

Reflexology is an ancient art of therapy that promotes relaxation, improves circulation, encourages overall healing, improves the immune system, and reduces pain, tension, and toxins. As it stimulates your nerve function, reflexology generates a deep tranquil relaxation that helps the body balance itself and allow healing energy to flow. This treatment method can even be effective in offering relief from ailments such as (but not limited to) back pain, migraines, infertility, arthritis, insomnia, digestive problems, and hangovers.

Our therapists will stretch and move your hands, feet, and limbs, applying pressure on reflex areas that correspond to specific organs, glands, and muscle groups. You can't help but feel relaxed as endorphins are released in your body, reducing stress, and returning the body to equilibrium. As you surrender your body into the care of our trained professionals, your mind will go off into a state of serenity. The reflexologist will accommodate your personal needs, spending extra time on tender areas in which the soreness will decrease with pressure. Let us take care of you, whether it's just to relax or to heal your medical condition!

Traditional Chinese Deep Tissue

The deep tissue technique is commonly designed to help with muscle damage from injuries and sports, but also if you are deeply stressed. This treatment will loosen your body up and relieve it of toxins with its slower, more forceful strokes as it targets certain areas for greater relief. The deep tissue process is known to vastly improve the condition of many different body parts.

Let our reflexologists take care of you with this session that not only brings pleasure and relaxation but also superior health benefits. Our therapists are able to use all parts of their hands and arms to rejuvenate muscles and body tissues beyond the external level.


A typical Nirvana signature session begins by cleansing the feet with a warm tea bath or with a steaming towel. After the feet are cleaned and warmed, the treatment begins. While your feet are soaking in a hot detoxifying tea bath, let our reflexologist work out all the tensions in your neck, temples, and scalp as you lay down and close your eyes. After the foot bath, reflex points on both hands and both feet will be tended to with knuckle and finger pressure. Next, you will be asked to turn over in the treatment chair onto your stomach, where your reflexologist will employ acupressure and traditional Chinese deep tissue techniques to your arms, back, shoulders, and legs to complete your full-body treatment. The combination of the different techniques provides a thorough and satisfying experience that will leave most people in a state of emotional bliss and internal harmony.

At the outset, we may ask you if you want the pressure to be applied soft, medium, or strong. You can adjust the pressure mid-session with the therapist if you change your mind. Also notify the front desk if you have any problem areas or requests, so the therapist can focus on the reflex points that will help alleviate these issues.

A complete session of reflexology focuses on the 65 reflex points on the feet, each of which corresponds to a particular gland, organ or muscle group. The reflexologist applies pressure with specific thumb, finger and hand techniques to the reflex points, looking for 'crystals' near the nerve endings. The theory advocates that nerve endings are unable to transmit proper life-energy because of these crystalline deposits that build up and block the pathway. Reflexology's techniques for breaking the deposits is believed to be helpful in restoring balance between your hands and feet (two if the most sensitive areas of your body) and your organs, glands, and muscles.

A reflexologist will look at your facial expressions and body reactions and notice you tensing or jerking to avoid pain, adjusting the pressure accordingly. As the reflexologist applies pressure to the various points, you can help him/her out by indicating if the pressure is too hard or too soft. Different people have different pain tolerance levels, and though reflexologists are skilled at reading your queues, nobody knows your own body better than you know it. Feel free to ask which part of the body a particular reflex point is affecting, especially if you feel discomfort there. We keep charts of the reflex points for your reference in the spa. It is normal to feel some pain during a reflexology session, especially if there are knots to work out of your muscles.

Should you ever have any trouble communicating with your reflexologist, please do not hesistate to get the front desk manager to assist. He/she is trained and given translation software for this very purpose. If you ever have any issues at all, no matter how minor, allow him/her the reasonable opportunity to make it right. Laying there frustrated is the worst way to spend your time with us.

Some customers report coming out of reflexology and traditional massage sessions feeling great, but also beat-up. The kneeding, perscussion, and rubbing techniques on your muscles causes your muscle fibers to loosen up and bruise, increasing energy and blood flow circulation. Your body begins the process of reparation immediately, and releases endorphins, giving you a feeling of pleasure and euphoria. Expect pleasure and euphoria every time you finish a session with Nirvana Reflexology Spa.
