    COMMON QUESTIONS REGARDING REFLEXOLOGY

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a science which deals with the principles that there are reflexes in the feet and hands which relate to every organ, gland and other part of the body. It is the technique of applying gentle pressure to reflex points on the feet and hands. This brings about a state of deep relaxation and stimulates the bodyís own healing process, helping you to return to a state of balance and well-being. Reflexology can benefit anyone.

How does a session work?

Before starting a session you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks. You will then soak your feet in a warm, antibacterial foot bath. They will then be visually examined for any obvious issues. The Reflexologist will then use a gentle, yet firm, pressure on the feet to remove congestion. It usually takes about one hour.

What if I have horrible looking feet?

A Reflexologist is there to do a job and isnít judging your feet or indeed, you. Your feet have their own shape and structure unique only to you and they are nothing to be ashamed of. Rather, as much as your feet do for you, they will appreciate any loving care.

What about ticklish feet?

Very rarely is the case that your feet will be so ticklish during a session that you wonít be able to receive Reflexology. Usually, as you feel the firm pressure on your feet, youíll find the session soothing and relaxing.

What does congestion look like?

Congestion can show itself as redness, puffiness, calluses, corns, bunions, feel like grains of sand, leaning toes, hammer toes, arch differences, and even bone changes.

What does it mean if congestion is found?

If congestion is found over a reflex area, it doesnít necessarily mean thereís a physical issue. There is an emotional attachment to every part of our body. The emotional attachment will be discussed during a session. We look at the emotional side first, the physical side second.

What should I expect after a session?

After a session, congestion has been loosened and will travel through the body. It is very important to drink water to help flush out any toxins. Toxins leave the body through urine. After a session your urine may be darker in color, stronger in odor, or cloudy. DRINK WATER!

How often should I receive Reflexology?

Itís best to start out with one (1) Reflexology session a week for four (4) weeks. It can take that long to get the congestion out of the body. After the initial four (4) sessions, maintenance sessions are usually scheduled from once a week to once a month, depending on your personal needs. If you listen, your body will tell you when youíre ready for the next session.

Does Reflexology cure?

Reflexology never treats, diagnoses or prescribes for an ailment. Nor does a Reflexologist claim to cure medical conditions. Instead, Reflexology naturally supports the body, mind, and emotions and allows them to heal on their own. It relieves stress, increases nerve and blood flow, and normalizes and balances the body. It can have some astonishing results.

How long has Reflexology been around?

Reflexology has its roots in ancient Egypt, India, and China. For centuries scientists have explored the theory that the body has energy zones running through it. In 1917, Dr. William Fitzgerald rediscovered Reflexology and brought it to the U.S.
