With an increasing number of clients complaining of aches and repetitive stress injuries in their hands, wrists and forearms, Wendy Lewis, owner of Prana Reflexology, in Warwick, has added hand reflexology to her sessions. Drawing on her training in hand reflexology and anatomy, Lewis developed an extended 90-minute reflexology session that includes 60 minutes of foot reflexology plus an extra 30 minutes exclusively for the hands, wrists and forearms.
Lewis targets reflexology points on the hands and adds relaxation techniques and gentle stretches. The goal is to help soothe and release tension in those areas as well as support the prevention of repetitive stress injuries. All sessions also include face relaxation and warm foot towel wraps.
Lewis says, “Although reflexology is thousands of years old, it’s great for modern-day health issues. Within the last few decades, computer and cell phone use has exploded, and I think that’s the biggest reason why we’re seeing an increased need for hand care. I’m using reflexology to help provide that support.” Regular clients include musicians, restaurant servers, floral designers and others that use their hands for work or hobbies.
