Got Pain? Get Relief in Saguache Today!
By Kathy Bedell © Saguache Today
Do your feet hurt? Or maybe you know someone who complains about discomfort in their hands? Well then, it’s time to take your boots off and get to the root of the problem! Your feet – and hands – are a major part of your overall health, so it’s important to take care of them.
Every Thursday, Suzanne Rouge holds a “Reflexology for Self-Care” class at BeBop studios in downtown Saguache. Each session offers a knowledgeable overview of Reflexology, also known as zone therapy. The technique is considered an alternative medicine involving the application of pressure to the feet and hands without the use of oil or lotion. Think of the feet – and hands – as the road-map to your good health.
For example, if you are experiencing kidney discomfort, there’s a spot on your foot where, when pressure is applied, painful symptoms can be reduced or eliminated altogether. In other cases, foot or hand pain can point to more complicated issues with other organs.
Suzanne is a true professional and has years of experience and instruction, allowing her patients to immediately feel at ease as she takes you on a journey of your feet and how you can experience the benefits of this ancient technique. Not only do you come away feeling more relaxed, but she provides you with a bit “homework,” including techniques that you can easily do at home. And if you’re a bit shy about someone taking a look at your feet and touching your tootsies, Suzanne put you right at ease; she’s seen it all!
Research studies demonstrate the many benefits of reflexology, particularly in reducing pain, enhancing relaxation, and reducing psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression. It’s certainly worth a try if you’re in pain or possibly taking medication for your discomfort.
It’s time to get to the root of the problem! So if you, or someone you know, has been experiencing foot – or hand – pain or simply want to learn more about your overall health, stop in to the Reflexology class in Saguache Today. The session starts at 11 a.m. and usually runs until 12:30. Gift certificates are also available if you’re looking to motivate someone to take the next step towards their good health.
BeBop Studio is a part of Saguache Works, a local non-profit, which include the thrift store and 4th Street Food Store. It is located in the back of the building at 317 San Juan Avenue, with access to the room next to the Wapiti Coffee House.
