what is Reflexology?
Reflexology is the "pressure point massage" of the foot, head, hand or ear. There are reflex areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. Its healing, soothing touch is one of the most popular and widespread therapies in the world. It's believed that applying pressure to these reflex areas can promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways.
Some of the benefits of Reflexology include:
Relaxation and stress reduction, improved blood circulation, enhanced energy and vitality, normalization of the body's natural functions, relief from tension headaches, digestive disorders
What will I feel?
Most people find reflexology for the most part to be very relaxing.
Reflexology shouldn't be painful. If you feel discomfort, be sure to tell the reflexologist. He or she should work within your comfort zone.
Some areas may be tender or sore, and the reflexologist may spend extra time on these points. The soreness should decrease with pressure.
If you're ticklish, not to worry. The reflexologist applies firm pressure to the feet.
How will I feel after?
Most people feel calm and relaxed after a treatment. They may even feel sleepy.
Occasionally, people feel nauseous, anxious, or tearful, but this is only temporary and is considered to be part of the healing process.
