October 12   Intuitive Bodywerks with Reflexologist/Massage Therapist, Erik Schreier

Come join us to learn more about the benefits and techniques of foot reflexology therapy and how massage and foot reflexology can help alleviate pain, tension/stress and promotes homeostasis. Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. These reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, which has a beneficial effect on a person’s health. Erik has been incorporating this modality with massage for some surprising results!
