Originally known as reflex zone therapy, it is a holistic healing method, which involves pressure and massage of the reflex points found on the feet and hands. Reflexology involves massaging, squeezing or pushing parts of the feet, hands and ears with a goal of encouraging health throughout the body. In the context of reflexology, however, reflex is used in the sense of reflection, or mirror image.
These reflexes are found on the soles of the feet, or the palms of the hands, which act as a small “mirror” reflecting the whole organism. It teaches that a vital energy, or life force, circulates between the organs of the body, permeating every living cell and tissue. If this energy becomes blocked, the part of the body relating the blockage is affected. By using specific pressure techniques, they can be detected through the experience of pain, or through the presence of “gritty areas”, often referred to as crystal deposits.
These occur in the part of the foot or hand that relate to the part of the body that is imbalanced. The pressure and massage techniques that taught in the reflexology are designed to dissipate the energy blocks, and break down the crystalline structure. Through stimulation of the circulatory & lymphatic system, and by encouraging the release of toxins, reflexology promotes the body to heal itself. Reflexology is an extremely effective therapy in cases of stress, tension, and tiredness. It can be used as a preventive measure against ill health. It allows the body to be in charge of healing itself.

Ultrasound cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Cavitation is a body sculpting treatment with no anesthesia, no scars, no discomfort, no down-time and presents a risk-free alternative to liposuction. The result is instant loss of fat cells.
Cavitation causes tons of microscopic air bubbles to surround the lipocyte (fat cell) membranes and with its resonant frequency, the bubbles cause a high enough pressure to cause the fat cells to break up instantly. The broken lipocytes can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system; they are then moved to the liver and safely metabolized out of human body which is assisted by drinking a lot of water, lymphatic drainage and exercise.
Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 35-40 minutes where a single part of the body is treated. 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. The minimum suggested number of fat cavitation sessions is between 6 and 10, depending on the body type and client goal.
