Reflexology is a therapy of relaxation. Circulation improves. Everything flows promoting balance and self-healing.
Passionate about self-care, Aleta loves to offer self-help guidance when asked.
FOOT & HAND REFLEXOLOGY
Aren’t the feet and hands amazing!?
Aleta is fascinated by and respectful of the many layers and aspects of the feet. One layer
is the actual structure of the foot, composed of various types of tissue, muscle and bone.
In each session, attention is given to relieving the everyday stress of using the feet
as well as the symptoms of projects like plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, arthritis, etc.
Another layer of the foot asks that we consider that there is a map of the entire body on the foot. Specific points, areas, and zones of the feet correspond to all the parts, organs, and glands of the body. By applying a feel good, yet therapeutic pressure, signals are sent via the nerves in the feet to the spine and brain and then to the parts, organs and glands of the body. Where there might have been resistance, there is now flow. When the circulation is stimulated in this manner, all systems receive nutrients, bringing the body back to homeostasis.
The same applies to reflexology on the hands. Hand Reflexology can be very helpful for people who work with their hands. They may find relief from or prevent repetitive strain injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, neuropathy.
FERTILITY & MATERNITY REFLEXOLOGY
The session begins with Basic Foot Reflexology and evolves to include Reflexology Endocrine Balance Technique and Reflexology Lymphatic Technique. This approach as well as the resulting deep relaxation enhances fertility and creates the conditions which make pregnancy possible. Over the years, Aleta has worked on numerous women who were able to find the time for their own relaxation through reflexology, go on to conceive
and maintain a full term pregnancy.
Maternity Reflexology is great for the mother as well as the developing fetus. It addresses the hormones of pregnancy, the rhythm of the trimesters, the biomechanics of the feet during pregnancy, the challenges of pregnancy, stress and anxiety, as well as preparing for birthing and the postnatal period.
FACE REFLEX THERAPY-SORENSENSISTEM TM
Lone Sorensen from Denmark began her career by learning reflexology at the age of 18.
Her natural curiosity and passion lead her to study and combine ancient methods from all over the world with modern techniques. She defines it this way:
“Facial reflexology is a therapeutic method in which stimulation of zones and points of the face are utilized to alleviate health conditions in other parts of the body.”
This method can be used for a variety of ailments and symptoms, such as:
Organ related symptoms
Muscle pain and tension
Stress related symptoms
Neuropsychological and brain diseases
JIN SHIN JYUTSU
Aleta’s interest in learning Jin Shin Jyutsu came out of her curiosity about listening to the pulse at the wrist, similar to Acupuncture pulse listening. Here is the definition from the website www.jsjinc.net
“JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.
Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.”
SOME OF THE ISSUES THAT CAN BE ADDRESSED & RESOLVED:
*Foot and hand discomfort
*Plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, arthritis
*Repetitive strain injury, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
*Constipation and other digestive issues
*Symptoms related to organs
*Stress and emotional imbalance
WHAT CLIENTS SAY:
“Over the last 10 years through my experience with Aleta Braun and reflexology my health has been touched in many positive ways. Several conditions, Plantar Fasciitis, Baker Cyst, back issues, menopause and hypothyroidism have been relieved as I have felt better and experienced a healing calmness. Aleta’s peaceful enviroment, caring conversation and soothing methods allow me to experience a relaxed state of being which I believe treats my entire body, mind and spirit. I feel Aleta is very intuitive and gifted. She expertly administers treatments that always leave me relaxed and restored. I am grateful for the time I have had to enjoy and benefit from her skill.” Jackie Taylor
“I have been receiving reflexology from Aleta Braun for over 15 years. Every session with her is golden. When I am on her table, I achieve a level and quality of relaxation that I have not found anywhere else, including massage and meditation. I imagine that while in this level of relaxation, every cell in my body is resting and healing.
Aleta’s hands are remarkably intuitive, skillfull, and effective in providing an experience of heightened well-being, as well as addressing specific health concerns. Through her reflexology practice Aleta has helped me manage physical challenges [including back pain, and problems with wrists, elbow, and hip] reduce emotional stress [e.g. work deadlines; raising a teenager!] and find balance and clarity during life transitions.” Dd
“I am so grateful to have been treated for years by Aleta. From master level reflexology, to singing bowls, to Jin Shin Jyutsu, to facial reflexology, Aleta respects her client’s body wisdom, listens carefully to what her client is asking for. She uses her voluminous resources to plan the session, and I’ve always felt so loved and well-tended. In times of need, Aleta has given me incredible self-care techniques to try. They always work.” Rosalie Jacobi Hutchens
“I remember feeling more balanced. The reflexology had a calming effect. I had anxiety about not becoming pregnant. Reflexology seemed pro-active and like I had some control. I was diagnosed with PCOS and chose the medication route first, but I had unpleasant side effects. I decided to pursue a more natural/holistic approach after my massage therapist recommended Fertility & Maternity Reflexology. For seven months, I received one-hour sessions every two weeks. The focus was on relaxing and balancing my system, especially my hormones. After seven months, I had a session as usual and announced that I was pregnant! I continued to receive the bi-weekly visits until my daughter’s birth. Women who want to conceive can be assured that Fertility & Maternity Reflexology is an option for medication sensitive patients. Their patients may prefer a holistic approach or want a team of professionals and strategies/modalities to help them.” Elizabeth Myers
