Foot reflexology is an ancient technique used for balancing the body and maintaining wellness.
We believed that when the reflexes become blocked or congested, the energy flow is interrupted and the body will become ill and diseased. By decrystallizing the reflexes, we open the energy lines allowing the body to rebalance. No one really knows how this works, but it does.
No feet are the same.
Animals are very protective of their feet. This is understandable, considering the significance of their feet. They will begin to love reflexology once they know what is happening. This process assist the body in clearing toxins, thus the importance of beginning slowly and gently.
Beginning slowly it is even more important when working with elderly animals, with the endocrine reflexes.
Your animal may give subtle cues like deep breathing, licking or whining. When hitting a sore spot the cues may be more obvious such as pulling away. Sessions should be spaced at least every other day, giving the body time to release toxins. Once a week is fine, especially with older animals. A healing crisis can occur after the first session. This crisis is created by an increase of energy to the body part and a release of toxins from the body into the blood stream.
Symptoms may include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, thirst, etc….
In case of vomiting, diarrhea, fever, chemotherapy (within 48 h) or shock, we are not processing this technique. If previous work wasn’t done on her, we will not work on an already pregnant female.
Be aware this process can stimulate elimination immediately or slightly differed. After the session after the therapist offered water, take your animal immediately out.
Please remember: Reflexology is a technique of release of toxins.
Isn’t replace medical treatment.

Using herbs to treat illness is the purest and simplest way to use medicine just as Mother Nature created it. As easy as cutting a piece of parsley from your garden or buying from the store already washed and adding the leaves to your pet’s dinner. In many cases a single herb contains substances that treats the specific problem and also provides nutrients and photochemical that support the body’s immune system and ability to function in many other ways. In comparison, a drug that is manufactured in a lab to have a specific action in the body – even if this drug is derived from a plant simply cannot provide the full benefits available in a single herb. Herbs can also be combined to treat specific problems.
Herbs are commonly used to: support immune system, for nausea and motion sickness, as a gentle diuretic, for liver problems, and to treat arthritis.
BECAUSE HERBS INTERACT WITH CERTAIN DRUGS ALWAYS CONSULT WITH YOUR VETERINARIAN BEFORE YOU COMBINE HERBS WITH A DRUG PRESCRIPTION.
FAILURE TO ADJUST THE DRUG DOSAGE OR CHANGING IT TOO MUCH COULD BE DISASTROUS.
