Maui Massage Seashells offers Reflexology in Maui! The holistic art of Reflexology Massage Therapy dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China.
Dr. William Fitzgerald introduced this therapy to the West as ‘zone therapy’ in 1913. He noted that reflex areas on the feet and hands were directly linked to other areas and organs of the body.
In the 1930’s Eunice Ingham further developed Dr. Fitzgerald’s zone theory into Reflexology. She observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body.

Everyone benefits from Reflexology!
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. Many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments ( after a set of treatments) in order to maintain health and well-being.
While many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress, at the same time many doctors, consultants, and other healthcare professionals recognize reflexology as a well established, respected and effective therapy.
With ever-increasing levels of stress, it is important people take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology helps us to cope with a physical, mental and emotional level thereby encouraging us to heal and maintain health in all areas of our lives.
What happens when I go for Treatment?
On the first visit, the reflexology practitioner will have a preliminary talk with you to determine your present and past health and lifestyle.
The reflexologist will then use their hands to apply pressure to the feet.
A trained Reflexologist can detect subtle changes in specific points on the feet. Working on these points may affect the corresponding organs or systems of the body.
How will I feel after a Reflexology Treatment?
After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very definite way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation; sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is transitory and is a part of the healing process.
Sometimes you can have a burst of energy after a reflexology treatment and then you’ll sleep like a baby that night. Be sure to give feedback to your reflexologist so he/she knows how your body is responding to treatment.
