Reflexology is an holistic treatment which helps restore the body to a state of balance. Reflexology is a scientific art based on reflex areas in the feet which correspond to all parts of the body. By applying pressure to reflex points, a message travels via the nervous system to create a physiological change in the body - it creates a healing response in the body. Reflexology is widely used & supported by clinical trials and research and FMRI studies. Modern science has discovered the connection between universal matter and energy waves that relate to the functioning of the body. Many health problems have been successfully treated as well as serving as a form of preventative maintenance. Reflexology is a safe, easy & beneficial method of treatment. Studies hove shown that Reflexology can reduce stress & related problems.
What does Reflexology do?
- Reduces stress, tension & calms the nervous system promoting deep relaxation.
- Diminishes pain & muscular tension.
- Improves circulation & the delivery of oxygen & nutrients to all cells in the body.
- Improves nerve & blood supply.
- Enhances vitality & energy.
- Strengthens the immune system. Improves assimilation of nutrition & elimination of toxins.
- Facilitates the body’s natural healing process returning the body to balance (homeostasis).
- Aids sports injury & workout recovery.
- Improves performance & concentration.
Approximately 80% of disease can be related to stress & nerve tension. Reflexology is a powerful antidote to stress as it deeply relaxes the body. It allows the nervous system to function normally & enhances the immune system. The body can then find its own homeostasis which is essential following a stressful event. Reflexology balances the whole biological system. It is a sense of well-being all levels. It is a gentle therapy - If sensitivity is felt, it is an indicator of where the body is out of balance. Because Reflexology is a holistic therapy, treatment response may be on many levels not just the physical - alleviating the cause and not just the symptoms of a health issue. Imbalances within the body cost be detected and treated before a physical condition even appears so Reflexology is an effective preventative therapy.
The ancient Usui system of hands on healing helps the free flow of stagnant energy in the body and chakras. Following illness, stress, injury, surgery or disease, it is in a state of imbalance, and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reiki is a precise holistic treatment of the body, mind & spirit and restores balance and promotes healing on every level. Reiki promotes relaxation & well-being and is a powerful tool for personal transformation & growth.
- Restores the balance of body, mind & emotions

IONIC DETOX FOOTSPA
An Ionic Footspa operates on the principles of electrochemistry producing positive & negative ions in the water (an ion is a charged particle that forms when an atom gains or loses or electron). Studies have shown that increasing negative ions produces stronger growth in plants, reduces negative symptoms in humans & leaves people with an overall increased sense of well being. Our modern environment, that exposes us to pollutants & toxins, is generally deficient of beneficial negative ions. Chemical pollution as well as EMF (electromagnetic frequency) pollution have been stripping our environment of positive energy. This greatly contributes to our bodies being out of balance. We can restore balance by increasing the amount of ions in our environment. Ionization, through the process of electrolysis, stimulates a detoxification process within the body through the process of osmosis. The principles of Reflexology outline how the feet are connected to all the vital argon systems and natural detoxification pathways. Toxins are eliminated through the feet into the water and after treatment through urine, breath & perspiration. The goal of an ionic footspa is to stimulate the body’s own natural detoxification systems & create a positive cellular environment.
Ear Candling is an effective treatment gentle enough for use on children and those with painful ear infections. Hearing aid wearers, swimmers, divers and surfers also find it very useful. Those who have pain during flying also find it great to do beforehand. Ear candles are useful in assisting:
- The relief of ear infection or sinus pain caused by blockages which bring about excess pressure.
- Drying excess ear wax to allow it to fall out;
- Drying debris from post and current infections to allow it to fall out;
- Drying fluid in the ear canal (especially people who swim or surf a lot);
- Relieves Pressure from flying
- Tinnitis/Headaches/Sore throat relief

WHAT DO MY CLIENTS SAY?
I highly recommend the Ionic Detox footspa treatment. I had a course of about 6 and it was amazing to see the difference in the colour of the water from the first to last treatment. I felt amazing afterwards, so cleansed and toxic-free!! My skin and hair were "gleaming". Had lots of positive comments. Also have had quite a few of the MonaVie juice packets. Love these! My 10 year old daughter has had a Reflexology session with Michelle when she couldn't shack a nasty cold. It did wonders for her. Have never seen her so relaxed. Seemed to help her recover more quickly. I will be taking both my kids to see Michelle for more treatments as I think they could both benefit from regular Reflexology. Thanks Michelle. Katie Daeche, Christchurch Michelle is a really warm and friendly person that makes you feel comfortable and like you have known her for years. She provides a truly outstanding professional service that allows you to leave feeling refreshed and fabulous! She really cares for her clients well being and always keeps you updated with interesting additional information which is great. Her expertise certainly stands out for me from others and its great value for money as well. Kirsten Jones, HR Consultant, Christchurch I have been a regular client at Sole Touch Therapy for the last ten months. A few months prior to that I suffered from a very bad broken ankle (three breaks). The reflexology treatments have given me immense relief post-surgery, and have assisted immensely with my mobilisation and rehabilitation. I always leave my reflexology treatments in a state of absolute relaxation, calmness and with a feeling of well-being. I would recommend the reflexology treatment to anyone, whether you are recovering from an injury, or are just looking for a state of wellness. Absolute bliss! Tracy Wilson, Company Director and keen sportswoman, Christchurch I first met Michelle in 2009 when she gave me several Reiki treatments. At the time I was distraught with losing my Mother. After 2 to 3 treatments I felt so much better and able to cope with life (and death). My husband and family all noticed a change in me. I continue to see Michelle for regular reflexology, ...she is an amazing healer and I wish her well with her business. Lynda Hay, Christchurch Michelle gave me a wonderful reflexology session. It is obvious that she is a dedicated Reflexologist. I really appreciated the special effort she made to create an inviting relaxing atmosphere. It enhanced my whole therapeutic experience. I felt very nurtured. Thank you Michelle. Elisa Lanau Reflexologist / Tutor Thank you for the Tone sway therapy. It was an "unexpected great experience". I was kind of emotional all day, but after two days, I could laugh at my self, because I realized "it is past and no one care about it anymore. Why should I??". Thank you Michelle!

We are beings of energy whose cellular structure is interwoven with vibrations ranging from high to low frequencies. To experience wholeness, the body’s energy must be free to flow unimpeded through the meridians. Unfortunately, as a result of unresolved emotional issues, energy flow gets interrupted which results in physical and mental disorders or dis-ease. We can stimulate our bodies and minds without the use of harsh medicines. Thoughts and emotions ore interconnected with the physical and play a vital part in our state of well-being and body/mind health. The human body has the ability to heal itself. You can improve your health by using natural healing tools to revitalize the natural healing process of the body and return to a state of homeostasis. Tap into radiant health, wellbeing and success!
