I have clearly seen first hand that reflexology has kicked me in the butt and it is now with stronger advocacy that I can highly recommend such as worthy therapy.
Scott had no problems pin pointing problem areas I had (I didn’t say much about them before the session) so he literally went by feel. He knew I had some digestion difficulties (stress anyone?), a problem with my back (which has really ticked me off because it has been affecting my training in the gym) and my adrenals are slightly pooched (I already guessed that one! Did I mention stress??)
When stress hits me, it hits me right in the belly. I don’t feel like eating, I get bloated and just feel like yuck.
And let me tell you, this guy could bring you to your knees when he it’s a sensitive pressure point!!!
White knuckled and holding my breath, he has me breathe through some of the spots until the pressure eased off somewhat.
You may feel deep pressure as the practitioner probes the feet, going over all reflexes to look for congested and sensitive areas. When those congestion areas are found, deep pressure techniques will be applied to decongest those reflexes, which may be painful (um, YEP!), but the pain will only last as long as his/her finger are working on the congested area.
The practitioner will also chart your reflexes for sensitivity and blockages, which will give them a picture as to what parts of the body are stressed and ‘overworked’. By utilizing this approach, the body returns to its normal state over time, if you keep up on appointments, and will tend to function naturally without interference eventually.
I can tell you honestly and completely how the next few hours went after the session. I didn’t feel particularly hungry which was kinda weird for me since that’s all I think about is food. My back didn’t really seem to be bothering me at the time, which as doubly weird because I was sporting some cute wedge open toe heels. The big benefit was that my stomach was talking up a storm to me…gurgling a LOT and let’s just say, Scott definitely got things moving!! Being as discreet as I can, I visited the washroom 4 times that day! Holy smokes! — Kristine S. – St. Catharines
Botanical Essence Therapy really? So here I was 45 years old and I just suffered a heart attack. I just completed the first year of school for the Practical Nursing program, going through a horrible divorce, I couldn’t take anymore. The stress in my life was unbearable, I was exhausted from writing reports studying for exams and I just wanted to feel better. Dealing with the fact I just had a heart attack at my age I was really scared and worried. I needed to make a lifetime change.I was informed about floral essences and I thought…what do I have to lose. So I called and made an appointment. Scott was very professional and very supportive. Scott said I would deal with a lot of issues during the first week of taking my first formula, which I did. It took approximately 5 months and 4 formulas but WOW I cannot believe the difference in the way I feel. I got rid of all that baggage I was carrying around for years. I dealt with a lot of issues personally and I feel better about myself.I would definitely recommend Botanical Essence Therapy as it really does improve in the way you feel but in how you look….Christine T…Welland (see her before and after photos on the Botanicals page.)
Karrie C.Surpassed any expectations I did had!Peeka-Boo! I See U! 3D/4D Fetal Ultrasound Studio
I was introduced to Reflexology without really knowing anything about the procedure. I thought to myself “Why not try it? I’m sure it couldn’t hurt.”
To my surprise, it pleasantly surpassed any expectations that I did have!
Healing Your Sole has a beautiful, soothing and mystical room set up for Reflexology. Knowing that I had no previous experience with Reflexology, Scott quickly made me feel comfortable and calmly explained everything that he was doing, step-by-step. Since I have had previous surgery on my feet, he was mindful of that and adjusted his pressure accordingly. The whole time, he reminded me to let him know if anything hurt or was uncomfortable.
During my first visit, Scott had pointed out some things in my body that he would never have possibly known about! There were some issues that specifically deal with the female body that he found in my FOOT!! The best part about it was that he handled it in a very gentle manner and in the least embarrassing way possible!!! Since Reflexology is meant to help the body reach a balanced state, I went through some bodily changes in the days after my first visit, but after that, I was totally fine…. and balanced! I felt wonderful!
I was so pleased with my first few visits that I decided to bring my young children for some sessions too. Scott was very gentle with my children. Although children may not be able to express so easily what they are feeling or experiencing (in comparison to adults), Scott was very calm with my kids and tried to pick up on little physical reactions that they were giving him (like tickles, twitches, eye contact, etc). I knew that even if Scott wasn’t able to pinpoint any issues from the Reflexology sessions that he would at least be able to trigger their bodies to work toward a balanced state.
I had developed a symptom that was similar to heartburn and pain in my upper chest. It was so painful and persistent! On one of my most recent visits to Scott, I decided to put him to the test! I DID tell him that I was having a major issue/symptom, but I wasn’t going to tell him what it was exactly. I really wanted to know if it would show up in the Reflexology session. I felt bad to put this kind of pressure on Scott, but he didn’t seem to be bothered by it! In fact, I think he enjoyed this challenge and the chance to really prove his belief in Reflexology!!! The majority of the session was good; probably because I’d been receiving Reflexology treatments for a couple of months already! And then…. I felt this terrible, awful pain near my left big toe when he was stimulating some of the nerves there. After seeing my reaction, he quickly adjusted his pressure and explored that area a little more carefully. I still didn’t tell him what symptoms I was feeling. He was able to pinpoint a very EXACT location which was higher than my stomach, in my upper chest and specifically upper esophagus! This is exactly where I was feeling the problem. Any x-rays or ultrasounds have shown no issues with my stomach! The issue was in my esophagus. After that Reflexology session, this issue with my esophagus subsided!
I have recommended Reflexology to so many people. I suppose I may have been somewhat of a skeptic before attending the sessions. The holistic approach seems like it is still on its way to becoming popular with most people. However, I can speak first-hand at the positive experiences that I’ve had with Reflexology and how it has benefited me personally. There is no reason to be embarrassed by going whether you are a woman, man or child, older or younger. There is no reason why you should not give it a try!
Christine B.My first Reflexology experience.St.Catharines.
I would like to share my first Reflexology experience with you. I was having a slew of health issues that came on suddenly and were unexplainable through the battery of tests that the doctor (MD) had done (only by my persistence of course). It was concluded, in not so many words that this must be “all in my head” and was given a prescription for anti-depressants.
Disgusted with this, I turned to alternative treatments; reflexology being one of them. I was asked by the reflexologist if there was something wrong with my heart. I didn’t think so and nothing was ever mentioned or tested for by my MD. Fed up with everything, I ended up going to a private clinic (where you pay for your services) and was tested from top to bottom. I learned of a few issues that I had, one of them being a valve problem with my heart! (MVP). Nothing overly concerning but it was contributing to what I was feeling. I just can’t believe how it came up in a reflexology session!
I don’t want to scare anybody by thinking all areas that show up on your feet mean there is a serious problem with that organ or system, but I’ve used this as a tool to help change my lifestyle (both in my eating habits, stress control etc). It has definitely been an asset in my health regime!
Sophie Lakis - AestheticianYou're in good hands.
I recently had a reflexology session with Scott after previously going to another practitioner for many years, who’s since moved out of the province–wow, what a difference!
Scott charted my personal areas of concern/findings as a result of my session, and after I’d filled in a medical history form–both which should’ve been professionally done by my previous reflexologist. His findings at the end of my session were completely accurate without any hints from me–I was greatly impressed! I will now work together with Scott and my doctor to take care of these issues, optimizing my health potential.
His passion for and in-depth knowledge of his new chosen profession is very evident from the first session a client experiences. I long ago learned we must all be very proactive in taking care of our health, using numerous modalities and not just passively going to our doctors for a single opinion and the standard “annual physical”.
I highly recommend Scott’s talent and services, assuring you that “you’re in good hands” with Scott at Healing Your Sole. Anyone is welcome to contact me for further reassurance/recommendation at (905) 684-8861.
Laurie S.I highly recommend Scott and his Reflexology treatments!
After just one Reflexology session with Healing Your Sole, I was impressed with Scott’s professionalism and expertise.
The atmosphere was peaceful and I felt relaxed, even though I was new to Reflexology and a little apprehensive beforehand. Scott spent extra time answering all my questions and made me feel comfortable through his friendly personality and approach. During my first appointment, he was able to target areas of my body that I was having issues with, without me mentioning them. In subsequent sessions, Scott was also correct in his assessment that the issues were improved.
Reflexology is not only an excellent source for discovering ailments, but also a means to help your body heal itself. It has been a refreshing approach to maximizing my own health in a natural way. I highly recommend Scott and his Reflexology treatments!
Paula B.I was amazed at how this all works!
During the initial visit, forms had to be filled out stating a brief health history. I had forgot about some past ailments and didn’t list them on the sheet. To my surprise, during the session, I was asked about my gallbladder. That area on my foot was extremely sensitive. I totally forgot about listing the fact that my gallbladder was removed several years ago. The lack of the organ being there was causing the sensitivity on my foot and Scott was able to detect this….WOW!
I would like to add that the whole atmosphere of the room the session is done in is very soothing. It is very easy to achieve a relaxing state during the session which is important to the overall outcome of the session. I love Reflexology and this is a great tool for pointing out areas of your body that may be in duress. It is a great stress reducer as well. I’d highly recommend it!
