Foot Reflexology is specific massage to various points on the feet that relate to the organs and systems in the body. It feels great, helps restore balance in your body and relieves tension. During a treatment, you can experience deep relaxation and calm emotions.
Studies show that Foot Reflexology can reduce pain and anxiety and can reduce fatigue. This targeted service can also address specific issues in your body like migraines. Although it can’t specifically treat individual diseases or replace standard medical care, it does help your body release stress. This release helps your body to heal when it is dealing with an illness.
Your massage therapist will start by doing a consultation with you to discuss your areas of concern and medical issues. This is to ensure that we don’t exacerbate a condition. Foot Reflexology has limitations, like if you have an open wound on your feet. Pregnancy is also a time when you should be cautious, as it has been reported that stimulating certain reflexology points can lead to contractions.
During your appointment, you’ll lie on a massage table just as you would during a massage. Some people relax and fall asleep which is fine as you will still receive the benefits of Foot Reflexology even in a deep sleep. After a session, you may have increased energy, or you may be tired. Both reactions are quite normal. Your body may need additional sleep for healing purposes. Ultimately, the goal is increased mobility and relief from pain. It may take a few sessions to achieve the full benefits.
