Reflexology Foot Path

June 2, 2011

Caring Community

A constituent recently sent me this photograph of a Reflexology Foot Path in Korea.  This is what he had to say about it:

“As you can see in the picture, this is a path that is essentially designed to give a foot massage to people. There were roughly 12 or more of these spread throughout the city I lived in, Changwon. At any given point in the spring, summer, and fall this was a hive of activity. During the day, seniors would use the path and in the evenings families and young couples would come to use it. While my wife and I were in Korea we had three rounds of visitors from Canada and the reflexology foot path was one of the highlights for them. One of our friends has even vowed to install one in her backyard here.

I believe that a reflexology path would jive with Guelph’s emphasis on community. Installing something like this in a place like Riverside Park, or in another area that you want to increase traffic through, would certainly encourage people to be active in their community. And, to be honest, the massage benefits of this path are tremendous. Thus, I believe Guelph should sincerely consider installing a reflexology path in town.”

    What a great idea? We should have a few of these around town link via a network or trails. And how hard would it be to include one at City Hall where the skating rink is being installed? A reason to visit City Hall in the summer.
