Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

For the therapists at Kingston Reflexology, the feet are like the telephones of the body: they have a direct line to virtually every organ. During signature reflexology sessions, this team administers pressure to strategic points on the feet to trigger wellness and relaxation throughout the organs and limbs. They also utilize Western techniques such as custom Swedish and deep-tissue massage to melt shoulder and back tension resulting from poor posture or mistaking a boulder for a beanbag chair. All these methods of relaxation unfold in Kingston Reflexology's private treatment rooms, which can hold anywhere from one person to a private party.
