Can you please explain Reflexology to me?

Can you please explain Reflexology to me?


A system of massage used to relieve tension and treat illness, based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head linked to every part of the body.

If you are like me, you nod along with people who talk about how great their Reflexology experience is but essentially have no idea what they are talking about.  I sit firmly between the concept of silly trends and the vast number of friends that say it works!  It is definitely current, hip and a growing trend.  Let’s take some time and dig into reflexology, the benefits and why it has made a home in many professional clinics.

The Basic Theory of .Reflexology.

  • The idea is that the areas of the body ie. hands, feet, ears etc. correspond to specific  organs, muscles and glands throughout the body.  When pressure is applied professionally and accurately, it can result in many benefits to your internal systems and overall personal health.

  • It is believed that reflexology allows the nerve pathways to open and congestions to subside which will promote relaxation throughout your body.

What can I expect on my first appointment?

  • The practitioner will ask you a series of questions and explain the process of Reflexology.

  • You will be informed that Reflexology does not replace other medical treatments and that they do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe

  • There will be applied pressure to your hands, feet, ears, lower legs and/or face

  • You will feel an overall sense of relaxation and sense of balanced wellness

What are the benefits of Reflexology?

  • National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health have reported studies that show it may reduce pain and psychological symptoms

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Enhance sleep

  • Promote relaxation

  • Benefits for palliative care patients

  • Asthma

  • Diabetes

  • Increase vitality and confidence

  • Eases aches, pains and discomforts

The overall goal of Reflexology is to promote relaxation and to help all of your organs work together at their very best.  Reflexology has been an active Chinese practise for over 3,000 years and is now a complementary practise here in our Western Culture.
