At Oriental Foot Reflexology, we provide Asian Spa bodywork therapy through an authentic Chinese foot reflexology treatment session
Our staff will ask if you have any particular ailments or areas where you experience tension or stress. We begin with a rose water mineral bath for your feet. During the soaking process our therapists will give you a relaxing neck and shoulder Asian spa treatment utilizing Tui Na techniques to relieve stress in these areas known to be where the body retains stress and tightness.
Our professionally trained staff is also experienced in Tui Na, a form of body work that utilizes the body's – meridian system to clear obstructions in the natural flow of energy in the body. For thousands of years the Chinese have used this system to relieve stress and promote overall health.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Does this really work?
A: This type of therapy has been utilized by hundreds of millions of people in China for thousands of years. Just about everyone who comes to Oriental Foot Reflexology leaves telling us they feel better from the experience.
Q: How often do I need to come for this to be effective?
A: This varies greatly depending upon what the therapy is being used for. For certain types of ailments regular visits are recommended. Other times, if the need is just to relieve stress or help your tired feet, a one off visit is all that is required.
Q: Is this therapy best done individually or as a group?
A: In China, reflexology spas are in many ways a social event. Groups of people will come together and have a good time together. In some cases where a particularly difficult ailment is being treated it may be best to be in an individual room to work one-on-one with your therapist.
Q: Where have the therapists been trained?
A: Most of the therapists at Oriental Foot Reflexology have been trained in China. There are a number of schools in America that now teach Reflexology which some of our therapists have attended. Many LMT’s have been exposed to reflexology as part of their training.
Q: Do I need to disrobe?
A: No, you need only take off your shoes and socks and we will roll up your pants. For Tui Na, disrobing into your undergarments is preferable and more comfortable and you will be under a sheet for the therapy.
Q: Do the therapists get tips?
A: Tipping is optional, but we think if our staff makes you feel great your generosity would be greatly appreciated.
«I have been to the other foot reflexology stores around and this is the real deal. I have traveled to China many times and can tell you this place is just like the spas in Beijing. The staff was really friendly and the treatment was simply wonderful.
The owner, Bonnie, met me at the front desk and was so cheerful it immediately comforted me. The place is very well decorated and very clean. The rooms are just like in China. The therapist started off with a rose water soaking, a great massage and then spent the next 45 minutes working on my feet. As I said, everyone was just so friendly and the service was great. I cannot recommend enough. I will be back.»
