The People of J&J Kawartha Massage Therapy
Rika offers a unique treatment to her clients that involves the combination of Reflexology with hot stones. Reflexology is a focused pressure technique, usually directed at the feet. The treatment starts by using hot stones to massage the lower legs relieving any tension in the calf muscles while enhancing the energy flow through pressure on each reflex points. The heat from the stones helps to relax the muscles in the feet allowing to penetrate deeper into the reflex area. The warmth deeply relaxes and soothes, melting away tension and anxiety restoring balance of body & mind. Rika also provides a hot stone neck and shoulder treatment that eases daily strains and tension. Rika's clients can experience deep relaxation feeling completely refreshed and rejuvenated.
Rika's goal is to provide a unique Reflexology experience to patients as well as be an integral practitioner in the holistic health community of Peterborough and the Kawarthas.

You may be wondering... how can the same chiropractic treatment which effectively treats my back pain also optimize my health? The answer can be found by looking into the relationship between the spine and the nervous system.
As you may already know, the nervous system is the master controller of all living cells, tissues and organs; orchestrating and coordinating all cellular functions. The spinal column encases the nervous system (spinal cord and nerve roots) and is responsible for its protection.
Because of this intimate relationship, biomechanical and structural problems in the spinal column can irritate parts of the enclosed nervous system. This irritation can result from noxious inflammatory biochemicals released during tissue injury or may result from direct mechanical pressure. In either case, the functioning of the nervous system is negatively influenced as is the functioning of the cells, tissues and organs which are supplied by the affected nerve(s).
The resulting ailment(s) depends on the cells, tissues and organs affected as well as the extent of nervous system compromise.
In short, because the body's innate recuperative powers are affected by and integrated through the nervous system, correcting spinal abnormalities which irritate the nervous system can lead to a number of favorable results in patients suffering from various, seemingly non-spinal health conditions.
