HEALTH & WELLBEING
Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet, hands and ears. Reflexology is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress.
The theory behind reflexology is that these areas correspond to organs and systems of the body. Proponents believe that pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person's health.
Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care of people with cancer.
Reflexologists claim that reflexology also can treat a wide variety of medical conditions, such as asthma, diabetes and cancer. However, scientific evidence is lacking to support these claims.

We have been in the Foot Reflexology our entire careers, working first in China, then the California , after nearly 10 years in the practice, opening our new reflexology lounge in Leawood, KS.
A foot reflexology may be just what your feet need at the end of a long day. From the moment you enter our elegant and peaceful Reflexology Lounge, your nerves calm, the stress of your day subsides, and you succumb to the tranquility of Tao Reflexology’s world.
You remove your shoes or sandals. Peaceful music soothes you while your feet soak in a tub of Tao Reflexology’s exclusive hot, mineral-infused elixir. Gently, one of our reflexologists begins to relax your shoulders, back and neck. Your journey to heaven has begun.
Once your body is relaxed, your feet are dried and you settle back into one of our special reflexology reclining lounges. Warm, clean towels surround you, as your experience reflexologist sits before you and begins to knead your feet and calves. At once, you are enveloped by music, tranquility and pleasure. The stress of your frenetic day is gone.
An hour later you are rested and relaxed. “Could someone just carry me home,” you wish, as you plan your next visit to Tao Foot Spa. A small price to pay for Nirvana. Indulge yourself. Call us for an appointment today.
