A reflexology massage is unlike any other type of massage. The pressure is applied on specific points on the feet which in turn correspond to other organs of the body.
This is very different from other forms of massage and is unique in itself as it employs a technique that is indirect and yet deep stimulating. HealthCure Massage provides you with an experience that is unlike any other.
While a number of therapies are spoken of, foot reflexology has been around for centuries, without much mention of the amazing ways and means in which it can heal unexplained aches and pains.
With its roots tracing back to Egyptian tombs, foot reflexology is assumed to have had its origin in Indian and China. Areas on the feet and palms were found to be sensitive and connected to the deeper areas of the body. This led to the feet and hands being divided into reflexes corresponding to these areas, and this technique was thus known as ‘zone therapy’, which is today known as reflexology.
The science behind foot reflexology
The foot is a map. You simply need to know how to navigate your way through it and find the right spot for relief from pain, stress, or any kind of soreness. Foot reflexology is not to be confused with reiki or acupuncture.
The three have their own ways of stimulating the body’s healing process to begin. Let us understand what each of them can benefit your health:
Foot reflexology: The application of pressure on certain areas of the foot in order for it to have a deeper effect on the corresponding organs and tissues is the aim of reflexology.
Reiki: The palms or soles of the feet are stimulated in order to pass the energy from the Universe onto the patient’s body, thus promoting healing.
Acupuncture: Specific points of the body are triggered by placing needles strategically, in order to stimulate the energy flow and cause healing.

What does a relaxation massage in Auckland do for you?
It is evident from research, that a foot massage and the specific stimulation of points does have a multitude of benefits that translate to improving different processes in the body.
This is greatly beneficial and helps to alleviate the pain in many diseases. It is also used to complement treatment during other conditions such as:
- Cardiovascular disorders
- Kidney problems
Often while medical treatment is taking its course of time, massage has been considered as great palliative care. It improves blood flow and causes the treatment to act faster.
Along with this, it also combats any side-effects that may crop up due to the medications.
During a reflexology session, our therapists will begin by asking you questions about your health, the complications you are suffering from, the areas that hurt.
Based on this information, our therapists will then be able to assess which areas of your feet need stimulation.
A note to remember is that we do not provide any form of sensual massage in East Auckland.
