Healing through the complimentary & integrative practices of Reflexology, Massage Therapy & Reiki.

Reflexology & Therapeutic Massage have been proven to help relieve many conditions including headache, plantar fasciitis, low back & hip pain, neck & shoulder pain, whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, insomnia, auto-immune disorders, stress reduction, chronic pain, and injury recovery.

Reflexology and Massage Therapy helps your body to heal itself by:

• Relieving stress and muscular tension.
• Improving blood circulation.
• Opening congested or blocked energy/nerve pathways.
• Cleansing the body of toxins.
• Revitalizing bodily energy.
• Promoting homeostasis (balance) throughout the body.

Statistics from the medical profession state that 70% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension. Reflexology, Reiki, and Massage Therapy have been proven effective in relaxing tension and stress, relieving pain, and addressing many health problems.

MASSAGE THERAPY: Offering Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Oncology for people living with cancer, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, and Sports Massage.

REFLEXOLOGY is a science that is based on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all of the glands, organs and systems of the body. It is a unique method of compression using the thumb and fingers on these reflexes to relax the body while stimulating electrical nerve impulses, which opens blocked or congested nerve pathways. This improves blood & lymph circulation, promotes the stimulation of sluggish glands and organs, and helps normalize the body’s natural balance.

REIKI (pronounced, ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning "Universal life-force." It is a practice used to promote relaxation and healing and to reduce stress. This is done through the “laying on of hands”—a technique that has been practiced for millennia; it can be done with or without touching the receiver. Reiki energy flows through the practitioner to the receiver. Reiki removes negative energy blocks and raises the vibrational frequency of the recipient’s energy, thereby facilitating physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing.

Philosophy and Comments        

I offer quality massage and reflexology sessions to clients in the Kentuckiana area. I take the time to communicate with you and listen to your needs and concerns. Each session is designed and customized accordingly, be it a relaxing or a therapeutic massage. I incorporate massage into reflexology, when needed, and use various techniques for massage therapy: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Oncology, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point, and Sports Massage.

I am located in the East End of Louisville (Anchorage/Middletown).

My Therapy Room is quiet, clean, and beautifully decorated to ensure a safe atmosphere of relaxation and peaceful comfort. Reflexology and Reiki sessions are done fully clothed on a comfortable plush massage table. Massage is done unclothed to your level of comfort.

"I have been a client of Rory's for both Reflexology and Massage Therapy for pre and post back surgery, as well as, regular wellness sessions.

I am a very active and busy individual and my Reflexology and Massage Therapy sessions with Rory release stress and leave me feeling balanced and peaceful. Highly recommend.

My pain level continues to improve in my feet, hands and wrists. I have recommended Rory to several of my friends and look forward to future sessions."

"Prior to having a reflexology session with Rory Foster, I had been to another "Relexologist." I found out after my session with Rory that what I thought was reflexology was only a foot massage. Rory is very knowledgeable and experienced in this field. He has helped me immensely and I always feel better after a reflexology session with him! Rory Foster is an excellent Reflexologist and the atmosphere of his location in Anchorage is warm, inviting, and allows for a relaxing experience."

Can Reflexology Change your life? By R. Johnson        

Well, I am not sure if it will, however, it has changed my entire world!

My first experience with Reflexology was due to injuries and with very little relief, not even with massage (I have been a Massage Therapist for 13 + yrs.). While searching for answers, I called a Reflexologist in my area. It turns out she was certified by the International Institute of Reflexology (I.I.R.). After my 1st session, I actually slept and was not in as much pain. I immediately called her to see where she received her training. While still walking with a cane (after my hip replacement), I traveled to Florida to follow her path. This is the beginning of my transformation!

Since that trip to Florida, I have and continue to implement Reflexology with my Massage. I feel it has been the missing ingredient to help take my clients to the next level of quality in life. I describe Reflexology as internal relief versus massage, which is external relief. I have been blessed to work with Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Holistic Medical Doctors, Acupuncturists and Cancer Specialists. To the amazement of some, Reflexology has done what nothing else can do. I had a Chiropractor test my abilities, to prove the science behind Reflexology (and did)! We have seen people with Fibromyalgia have decreased pain, Neuropathy patients increased feeling in their feet, Insomniacs actually get some sleep and clients with I.B.S., their symptoms begin to diminish. These Doctors all believe in the benefit of complimentary care and see Reflexology as an added modality.

The most amazing of all was with my wife’s cancer treatment when she developed phlebitis. I had been working her feet as often as possible to help with her anxiety and nausea (which was helping). Nothing mainstream was helping her painfully swollen arm, when I remembered something about referral areas and arms vs. legs. Upon research I found a spot on her leg that was tender and corresponded to her arm area and began working. I explained to my wife how working 1 part of the body effects another, etc. Within a few days the Phlebitis was gone.

Since that 1st exposure to Reflexology my life and world has been altered. When my granddaughter began teething I said, “play with her toes and feet”, I was told, “no one can touch them; she hates it!” To this day she loves her feet touched and actually uses her feet as much as her hands! When anyone has any problem, I think what can Reflexology do to help?

To think one injury led me on a search that has enhanced my life forever. I am truly grateful for finding the world of Reflexology and all its applications. I am amazed today when I work with a client and they say “this is not what the last person did for me with Reflexology”. No, not all Reflexology training or practitioners are created equal. I recommend that people ask for an I.I.R. Certified Reflexologist when booking their appointments!

Today, my practice continues to grow with over 50% of my clients receiving Reflexology. I envision Reflexology to continue its growth, and yes, Reflexology could change your life forever!!
