Dawn Duffy and Pam Riley - Egyptian ReflexologistsDawn Duffy and Pam Riley have completed their final exam to become certified Egyptian reflexologists. This technique is different than other forms of reflexology in that it is far more gentle to the person giving the session and does not cause pain or harm the person receiving it.

The Egyptian method incorporates an Eastern philosophy of meridians, and “circles the dragon,” rather than digging into an area of pain. By incorporating aromatherapy into her work, Duffy has helped alleviate headache and cold symptoms with her clients in just hours after a session. Egyptian Reflexology is practiced at Wellspring Family Wellness, in Naperville.
