One step into Timothy?s Salon & Spa (formerly Happy Feet), and it's immediately clear that it's a place of relaxation. Herbal fragrances fill the space and low lighting shades the minimalist decor. Soft music plays in a few different styles. It's an easy setting in which to feel relaxed and sets the stage for the reflexology treatments Timothy?s is known for.

But the massage practitioners here have talents that go well beyond toes and soles. Many of their services combine signature reflexology with other techniques, including shiatsu for the shoulders and neck. Or they can focus entirely on Swedish and deep-tissue massages or other custom kneads. Beyond providing that kind of internal bliss, aesthetics are a priority here too, with stylists who add value to any spa day with haircuts and aestheticians who apply permanent makeup and eyelash extensions.

Much in the way that veins circulate blood throughout the body, meridians facilitate the flow of the bodies' electrical energy?or chi?from organ to organ. Armed with this understanding, the specialists at Meridian & Facial Spa aim to keep meridians flowing smoothly with a variety of Chinese practices performed inside vibrantly colored treatment rooms. The team members frequently perform the spa?s signature Meridian massage, which aids in the body?s natural detoxification process by targeting chi highways and breaking up traffic jams like a siren-blaring ambulance strapped to the top of a monster truck. And as the spa's name suggests, the staff performs more than just meridian-inspired services, including facials and peels administered by cosmetologists.

Though it’s still enjoying the fresh feeling of being a new business, Lan Foot Spa offers the thousands-year-old practices of acupressure and reflexology. Founded on principles described in a document written between 2697 BC and 2596 BC, acupressure applies targeted pressure to specific points on the body. A similar treatment, reflexology taps into specific points on the feet. Each point on the feet corresponds to specific organs in the body; tips of the toes reflect the head, the balls of the feet reflect the heart, and the arches of the feet reflect the liver, the pancreas, and all tickle spots.

Reflexology: Tracking Energy from Head to Toe

Though reflexology shares much in common with acupuncture, it has its own unique properties and origins. Read on to learn more about the practice.

In the early 20th century, you might have been able to identify patients coming from a reflexology appointment by the clothespins on their fingertips. Today?s reflexologists generally carry out their treatments by hand in a wellness clinic or a massage studio, but the principle remains the same: apply pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, or ears, prompting responses in organs throughout the body.

Similar to acupuncture and acupressure, the practice posits that energy pathways run throughout the body. Reflexology?s system, however, is a bit simpler than Chinese medicine?s complex map of meridians. Envision vertical lines running from each toe up through the leg, joining lines running from each finger up the arm toward the neck and coming together in the head, and you have the body divided into 10 attractively slimming reflexology zones. Within each zone on the palm or?most common in reflexology sessions today?the sole, certain pressure points are thought to correspond to organs, joints, or other tissues elsewhere in the same zone.

Dr. William Fitzgerald?originator of the clothespin technique?began practicing what he called ?zone therapy? in 1915. While research has yet to find a concrete link between modern medical thought and the millennia-old idea of imperceptible bodily energy, that doesn't mean reflexology can't be relaxing. Patients can expect the benefits of a treatment to include at least those of a good foot massage: increased circulation, relieved muscle tension, and decreased stress and susceptibility to tickle attacks. Even early proponents of the technique accepted that results might vary from person to person. Writing in 1928, physician Bernard Lust was content with claiming that ?the adoption of the method is attended with absolutely no danger or disagreeable results, and may be the means of lengthening short lives and making good health catching.?

Since becoming a certified acupuncturist in 2001, Dr. Ying Li has helped clients suffering from carpel tunnel, migraines, frozen shoulders, and back pain. Though her approach to each of these ailments is tailored to the client in need, her philosophy remains the same for everyone: address painful symptoms and pursue a healthier, more balanced body. At her clinic, she combines acupuncture treatments with other types of Eastern and Western medicine, including acupressure massage and nutrition programs. These services strive to help clients with both chronic and acute conditions, as well as those on-again, off-again conditions that just won't move on with their lives. Visitors can also benefit from reflexology sessions, during which different areas of the feet are massaged to affect corresponding body parts.

Relieving symptoms isn’t enough for the therapists at Nabacu Eastern Medicine. Instead, they strive to promote the sort of holistic wellbeing and balance that helps people live full and healthy lives. Founders and mother-daughter team Dr. Aifei Wang and Julia Zhou rely on ancient healing treatments as well as elements of modern medicine. By combining a variety of treatments including acupuncture, massage, cupping, herbal remedies, and nutritional guidance, they can help correct the energetic and hormonal imbalances that contribute to chronic pain, discomfort, or anxiety. These corrections bypass the symptoms entirely to address the underlying concerns instead, which gives the body a chance to exercise its natural ability to stave off illness and injury.
