Enjoy dinner with the artists, and treat yourself to a "Spa
Experience" enjoy a 30 minute Reflexology Massage (hands or feet)
with Michael Kennedy. Michael has graciously agreed to prepare our
meal, consisting of grilled chicken, steak, potatoes, choice of
vegetable, salad and dessert or pizza & jojos. After dinner he will
perform reflexology massages for those who are interested. What is
reflexology? Reflexology is the application of pressure, stretch and
movement to the feet and hands to effect corresponding parts of the
body. What are the benefits of reflexology? In general terms the
benefits of reflexology have to do with the reduction of stress.
Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of
the body they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and
reset homeostasis, the body's equilibrium. ***Join Cheryl,
Donna & friends for an intensely creative weekend***
