“Right hip, right knee and sciatic, please,” said Cindy Millay, as she reclined in a massage chair with her sock-covered feet hanging off the end.

Sue LaDuke gently massaged the bottom of her foot with an electric tool, sending 4,400 tiny impacts a minute into Millay’s foot.

Every Monday, Millay gets reflexology from LaDuke, of Casper, who is a certified reflexologist with the Modern Institute of Reflexology in Colorado. Millay has had unexplained joint pain for more than eight years, and working on her feet as a route salesperson aggravates it. But reflexology helps ease her pain.
