We have over 7,000 nerve endings on the soles of our feet, making them quite sensitive and responsive to the sensory input of Reflexology. The body is reflected in your feet. Reflexology approaches the body as a whole with interrelated systems. The practitioner uses a skillful application of pressure to specific reflex points in the feet or hands, which creates physical changes that can bring about balance, ease, and enable healing energies wherever in the body they are needed.
Reiki uses “Universal Life Energy” to address both chronic and acute conditions, which gently and powerfully promotes balance among all the body’s systems, as well as the normal regenerative processes of the body and mind. Many ancient cultures embraced the belief that life energy flows throughout the body and deeply effects our wellbeing. Any imbalances or disruptions in the life energy flow can correlate to physical, mental, and emotional illness. Reiki complements medical treatment, massage therapy, pschological counseling, and is appropriate for patients in any state of health. Reiki is gentle enough to offer support and reduce discomfort of pain on many levels. Many patients report a feeling of deep relaxation and a sense of wellbeing. (We also offer Reiki Training)

Everyday we are exposed to about 50,000 chemicals from the environment, water, and food we eat thus resulting in hazardous heavy metals that get stored in our body. When toxins are present in the body, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired, which inhibits the body’s immune system, making it difficult for the body to fight disease. In order to maintain a productive life, detoxification is a necessity. Detoxifying the body has been a familiar modality to all ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic, Egyptian, Chinese and Native American for thousands of years. The Far Infrared Sauna and Ionic Footbath are two simple, painless, comfortable, soothing methods that can aid in the detoxification process.
I am very impressed with the IonCleanse machine (what we use at Abundant Wellness) and recommend it highly to any parent who is wanting try everything to help their child improve. It is simple to use and my son enjoyed doing the footbaths so it was never a struggle to use. I honestly don’t understand everything that the ionic footbaths did for Daniel, but what I do know is that it was the last treatment I did for my son that allowed me to finally say he had RECOVERED from autism.
