Frequently Asked Questions 

Why work the feet?

We have over nerve endings on the soles of our feet. This makes them quite sensitive and responsive to the sensory input of reflexology.  Your nervous system mobilizes around new sensory input. For instance, when you bang your elbow, your whole body responds. This principle also works for positive input. That is, when your reflexologist slowly intentionally works your feet, your whole body relaxes, allowing tension and pain to subside. 

Your body is reflected in your feet. Years of experience by reflexologists and recipients alike suggest that when pressure is applied to the feet, predictable positive changes occur in specific areas elsewhere in the body.

 

Reflexology has been shown to improve circulation. Circulation carries oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and carries wastes away. Improved circulation can result in decreased muscle tension and soreness, and reduced swelling from injuries or illness. Immune function, skin tone and the ability to concentrate also improve when circulation is increased.

 

The feet are accessible and easy to work. Removing shoes and socks, and your reflexologist can address the needs of your entire body. If your feet cannot be worked for any reason, you can receive the same benefits from stimulating the reflexology points in your hands.

What should you expect? 

To receive reflexology, you will lie on a table or sit in a reclining chair, and your reflexologist will apply thumb or finger pressure to each foot. Certain areas may feel more sensitive than others. The tenderness often decreases as your practitioner works your feet and you begin to relax.

It is important to stimulate all the points, so your reflexologist will not avoid the tender areas, but will work within your comfort level. Speak up if you feel discomfort, so treatment can be adjusted. Make your reflexologist aware if you are pregnant or have a medical condition.

 

Responses to reflexology vary widely. After a session you may feel calm and relaxed, or you may experience a feeling of energy and rejuvenation. Some people initially experience fatigue after a session, then notice an increase of energy over the following days.

 

The more you receive reflexology, the more benefits you are likely to notice. Your reflexologist will help you decide the best frequency to meet your specific needs. As you begin to experience feelings of well-being from your sessions, you may become more aware of how it feels to be truly relaxed. This can help you recognize areas of tension, so you can take steps to release them in your daily life.

Our bodies are amazingly resilient, continuously adapting to physical, mental and emotional challenges. Every minute of the day, your body’s systems work together to create the subtle adjustments needed or good health. By using skillful pressure to specific points in the feet, a reflexologist joins in the silent dialogue within your body. 

Reflexology feels good and is used for maintenance, preventative care, health challenges, comfort and healing.
