Asian reflexology is an ancient form of massage therapy in which the soles of the feet are massaged, designed to stimulate the blood supply and nerves thus relieving tension in the rest of the body. This enhances overall relaxation, bringing internal organs and their systems into a state of balance.
Asian reflexology is particularly helpful in the United States where approximately 86% of people commute by car, one of the largest percentages in the world. The blockage of blood-flow to the nervous system by being in a seated position for such a long period of time can cause pain. Applying pressure to specific pressure points located from the knee to the sole of the foot releases the blockage to provide relief.
The Island Oak Pedicure begins by focusing on six major pressure points and utilizing all-natural products. Three of these pressure points target people under the age of 45 and three target those who are less active or retirement age. Additional points can be used for people suffering from sciatica, lower back pain, or headaches.
Peter and Martha Khong chose to establish Island Oak Spa & Nail on Johns Island because of its natural tranquility. For years Johns Island has been known as a peaceful retreat for those in search of relaxation, world-renowned golf courses, and retirement living. Asian Reflexology can only be practiced close to nature making Johns Island a pristine location for the spa. Island Oak is nestled in a quiet plaza set apart from the street.

My passions are my family, travel, photography and being the best I can look and feel. This is why I accepted the position of Medical Supervisor at the Island Oak Medical Spa. Looking one’s best, regardless of age, leads to a sense of feeling better about oneself. When one feels better about one’s self, one can relate more truthfully with others and be more productive.
