REFLEXOLOGY

Big Sur is a place of healing energy, and reflexology is based on the principle that this energy flows freely around the body when we are in good health — and that there are reflex areas on the feet that correspond to every part of the body. Sit back and relax as your therapist applies varying degrees of pressure to specific points on the feet to unblock energy flow and promote the body’s natural healing from within. This treatment focuses on the feet, hands, and scalp, creating a deeply restorative therapy.
