AON Physical Therapy & Wellness is now offering reflexology at its Mahopac location. Margaret Cucchiarella, a nationally certified reflexologist with 12 years’ experience, started working at AON last year, and she says reflexology complements physical therapy. “Reflexology is a powerful holistic approach to reducing stress throughout your entire body. It assists with the natural healing process by applying specific pressure techniques to reflex points in your feet and hands that correlate to each organ in your body. It is incredibly relaxing, and when your body is relaxed, then healing can really take effect.”

Among the main benefits of reflexology are stress reduction, relaxation, increased circulation, improved body function, pain management and maintained wellness, she says.

“If I can offer any advice to clients when I am explaining what reflexology is and what it can do for you, my response is, ‘Try not to wait until you have a chronic issue to seek reflexology,’” she says. “Reflexology is effective with physical therapy because it helps increase circulation and elicits relaxation, which we all need. If we can increase circulation and relaxation in our body on a regular basis, then I believe many illnesses can be avoided. Stress is the main cause of illness. Reflexology de-stresses your entire body. It’s a win-win.”

First-time clients will receive a 20 percent discount off a 30- or 60-minute reflexology session. Reflexology services are held at AON’s Mahopac location at 953 Route 6. For appointments, call 845.208.0963.
