Reflexology can be defined as specific massage like techniques applied to the feet. When these techniques are applied with intense enough pressure they provoke an action potential. An action potential is a self-regenerating wave of electrochemical activity that allows nerve cells to carry a signal over a distance. When action potentials (also known as nerve impulses or spikes) occurs in the body through pressure, many structures of the body are affected by this stimulation including nerves, muscles, the central nervous systems, organs, and glands. Reflexology is healing experience through deep relaxation or stimulation that allows the body to initiate its own internal healing mechanism.

"The layers of the onion that were peeled away from my personal experience by getting reflexology showed me how incredible reflexology is and how the energy flows. The friendship shared and sharing that I experienced but most of all, I want to thank you Charlotte for being the Messenger that has helped me move to the next level of my ersonal and spiritual growth. Your passion and commitment are so genuine and I am blessed to have you in my life. My sincere thank you for the bottom of my heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you, You ROCK!"
