Foot Reflexology

Reflexology is a complementary non-invasive therapy based on the principle that congestion or tension
in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in a corresponding part of the body. These parts,
known as reflex points can also be found on the hands and other body parts such as the face and ears,
however, the most commonly treated area is the feet. To discover the history of reflexology, click here.


Reflexology has many beneficial and lasting effects. Some treatments are gentle in nature, aiming to
restore systems for better function while others are more specific, addressing the client's particular
conditions. It is a healing process that can be safely used when it is not convenient to treat other body
parts. As a non-intrusive technique, it heals indirectly.

Reflexology can be a relaxing therapy that works on many levels, soothing, calming; balancing the
physical, emotional, mental and spiritual state, thus treating the whole – an holistic approach to
health. The client's case history leads to the treatment protocol so that the technique is tailored to
the needs of the client.

• Sinus pain
• Menopausal symptoms
• Migraines
• Pre-menstrual syndrome and other menstrual irregularities

General benefits of reflexology include:

• Reduced stress and tension
• Improved circulation & immunity
• Reduced toxicity
• Better elimination
• Hormonal balancing
• Increased body awareness


A foot reflexology session usually lasts about an hour, depending on the age and state of the client's
health. There is no need to get undressed as it is required that only shoes and socks are removed.
A cleansing foot bath with aromatherapy oils and possibly a gentle salt scrub is usual before the
treatment begins.

Let your reflexologist know if you have any known allergies or aversions to oils, aromatherapy or
other. After a session, the patient will become aware of the changes taking place as toxins released
from congested systems are processed and eliminated. Drinking more water regularly but often aids
elimination of these toxins.
