Take time for yourself and enjoy a 90-minute Full Body Massage & Reflexology or a 45-minute Hand & Foot Reflexology.

Diane provides her services once a week at Bridging the Gap Wellness Center. She is currently retired but offers 3 appointments a week to our clients.

Since she was a child, Diane has loved caring for people. She trained in Reflexology originally to help family members. And moved into massage. She started using it in her volunteer work at a nursing home while also doing dog therapy with her dog. She loves the ability to work with people, to help them through physical and emotional problems using essential oils, reflexology, massage, and visitations with her dogs Maggie & Mindy.

Massage and reflexology have been used together for many years to complement each other.

Massage works with the muscle and connective tissue to reverse postural dysfunctions that cause pain and discomfort.

Reflexology works to rebalance the body by returning it to a state that promotes self-healing. Reflexology works with reflex points on your feet that when activated, create an involuntary and spontaneous reaction in the body.

Our whole body is mirrored on the foot (and hand). When an area of the body becomes injured, the corresponding reflex point on the foot can be painful. The injured area of the body may be too tender, sensitive, or damaged to be treated directly.

However, Diane Howe can use the tender area on the foot to treat the injured area indirectly. Treating the sensitive area of the foot allows the practitioner to activate the body’s natural healing response, and reduce swelling and encourage healing of the area.

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet (or the hands).  It is generally relaxing and may help alleviate stress, anxiety and enhance relaxation and sleep.

The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. When pressure is applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.

Registered Reflexologists, like Diane, use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas. Reflexology is sometimes combined with other hands-on therapies such as massage, and may be offered by chiropractors and physical therapists, among others.

Some people with medical conditions find that they feel less pain and discomfort if they have less stress. Reflexology may help with alleviating the pain and discomfort. The psychological benefits of the therapy and found that it boosted feelings of well-being and made it easier for people to manage their conditions.
