Reflexology with June Atherton
December 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 3:45 pmFree
Since April, the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center has shifted its many services online and has continued offering support and information by phone while navigating the current pandemic. During this time, the doors of the Center have been closed to the public, but soon a limited number of people will be permitted to return for appointments with reflexologist June Atherton. Appointments will be offered on every 3rd Tuesday and 3rd Wednesday of each month to cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers free of charge.
Reflexology is based on the idea that stimulating specific points on the feet and hands can improve the functioning of corresponding organs, glands, and other parts of the body. This hands-on modality uses a thumb and finger-walking technique to apply pressure on the reflex points of feet and hands. It is an ancient practice that has developed over thousands of years. Reflexology reduces stress, improves circulation, and is used to encourage relaxation throughout the body. Treatments are done while seated.
Precautions will be taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19. All staff, practitioners, and visitors are required to wear masks and practice good hand-washing practices. In addition, traffic flow through the building is limited, rooms are well-ventilated, all touchable surfaces are disinfected in between sessions, visitors will be allowed in the building one at a time and expected to wait in their car or outdoors until their appointed time. Visitors can expect to have their temperature taken, answer questions about possible exposure and past travels, and sign waivers upon arrival.
If you have questions about this service or if you would like to make an appointment, please call the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center at 664-0339 or email [email protected]
