Bare your toes this summer... 

The weather is finally consistent with the season called SUMMER! Free those toes from shoes and treat your bare feet to some nature; the grass in the park, the sand at the beach, or experience the many textures of a reflexology path. The Seattle area is fortunate enough to have several outdoor reflexology paths open to the public. Walking on a reflexology path stimulates reflex points in the soles of the feet connected to various organs and systems in the body. Gravity combined with pressure on the stones provide a therapeutic exercise that stimulates health. Elizabeth Marazita, fellow reflexologist and creator of paths with Paths of Health, Inc. says, "Walking a foot reflexology path has been part of the traditional wellness practice of many Asian cultures for thousands of years, and scientific studies have shown real benefits of walking the path," which include increased circulation, improved relaxation, and decrease in stress levels. Walking outdoors on a sunny day is a bonus!

Tips for Walking a Reflexology Path:
  1. Each path is unique. Follow instructions posted at the path.
  2. For best results, walk barefoot, in socks, or with soft-soled shoes. 
  3. Your feet may be tender at first, so walk at your own pace. Breathe slowly and deeply.
  4. Use provided handrails for balance assistance and for rocking exercises on your arches. Rest on provided benches between walking sessions and massage areas of soreness on your feet.
  5. After walking a reflexology path, drink water to help flush away released toxins.

What about YOU?

It's late at night after a day filled with work, social engagements, and family; you feel lucky if you have a few spare moments to yourself. Keep in mind that you are better equipped to "take care" of business and others if you take care of your needs. Commit to one thing for your well-being in the next few weeks. Need ideas? Take a walk at lunch time, stretch your limbs before getting out of bed, plan a healthy meal, relax in a warm epsom salt bath, make a cup of tea and stare out the window, limit multi-tasking for a day. When you are relaxed, your body and mind can recharge, refresh, and reset allowing you to feel ready to face the day with energy!
