Reduced-rate Reflexology on Thursdays at SearchLight Medical: For new clients in Hopewell Junction, NY

Margaret Pelzer, RN

SearchLight Medical has launched a new website with an updated look, patient testimonials and a blog written by founder Dr. Laurie Mallis, a physician and licensed acupuncturist. In celebration of this event, the practice is introducing “Thirty Thursdays,” with reduced-rate reflexology sessions for new patients.

Margaret Pelzer, RN, a board-certified reflexologist, will be offering new patients 30-minute reflexology sessions (normally $55) for $30 every Thursday. According to Pelzer, some of the benefits of reflexology are pain relief, better relaxation, reduced stress and anxiety, improved sleep and better blood circulation. “Reflexology is an ancient healing modality that stimulates specific areas on the hands, feet, ears or face,” she says. “These ‘reflex’ areas correspond to the organs and systems of the body through energetic pathways. By applying gentle pressure, I slowly work through all the zones that promote a state of relaxation, allowing the body to cleanse, energize and distribute healing energy. The result is a feeling of balance, improved health and well-being.”

SearchLight Medical provides health care to patients by combining holistic treatments with western medicine. Mallis and her staff work in conjunction with primary-care physicians and specialists, offering services like medical acupuncture; Mei Zen acupuncture for the face, the neck, weight loss and infertility; Ondamed biofeedback therapy; reflexology; and Reiki.

SearchLight Medical is located at 2345 Rte. 52, Hopewell Junction, NY.  For more info, call 845.592.4310 or visit
