The goal of reflexology is to bring the body back into balance by the skilled manipulation of reflex points on the feet that correlate to your body's organ systems. The use of these techniques also promotes relaxation and helps to alleviate stress.
We have a lot, A LOT, of nerve endings in our feet (over 7,000 in each foot). Stimulating these nerves during a session helps to rejuvenate the nervous system and support healthier function.
Reflexology is beneficial for those experiencing chronic medical issues. Some of these can include pain, migraines, or anxiety. It is also a wonderful preventative care technique to support your overall wellbeing and is appropriate for all ages.
If you are new to reflexology then it is recommended that you have weekly sessions for the first 4-6 weeks; then bi-weekly sessions for 3 months; then monthly sessions.
This schedule would be standard if you are using reflexology as part of your health program. Otherwise, there is no set recommendation for sessions if they are being used for relaxation purposes only.
Please wear comfortable clothing and loose fitting pants to allow access to the lower legs from the knee down.
This information, along with any concerns you have, allows for an individualized session focusing on the body systems that need the most support.
