What exactly is reflexology?
Reflexologists apply pressure to specific points on your feet. Many new clients expect it to be like massage – but think of it as acupuncture without the needles and you’ll get a better idea of what it’s all about. Reflexology is not a medical treatment per se – it’s more a system of natural healing.
Both an art and a science that dates back to the ancient world, reflexology works on the basis that each organ, gland and muscle is linked to a corresponding reflex point on other parts of the body – particularly your feet.By applying pressure to these points, reflexology can heal and soothe the corresponding part of the body. While it can work on individual areas for things like shoulder pain, it is considered to work best on the body, mind and spirit combined.
Does reflexology hurt?
Don’t be surprised if we poke a little; it’s all for the greater good. Reflexology often involves breaking up toxic blood crystals that are notorious for forming in the feet. Whilst this may be slightly painful, to begin with, it’s also an incredible release and will ultimately re-balance your digestion, hormones, blood circulation and more.
The sensations you experience will be felt on your feet, not by corresponding organs, glands or other parts of the body. You may feel slightly sore for up to 1-2 days after a session as your body expels the toxins we’ve released.
Why should I drink water after reflexology?
You’ll need to drink water immediately after a session to wash away the released toxins and make the most of, or your session won’t be very beneficial. We also advise that you should keep drinking extra water for around nearly 24 hours afterwards.
If you’re still not sure, why not ask your partner or a friend to give you a foot massage? There’s a reason why it feels so great, even if you’ve been sat on the sofa all day!
What ailments can reflexology help?
Reflexology enables your body to self-regulate and balance, relieving stress and pain. It’s been reported to help with sleep dysfunction, migraines, constipation, colds/flu, back and neck pain, digestive issues, chemical dependency and weight gain. Even if you’re in peak physical condition, reflexology can still offer the possibility of enhanced energy, productivity and creativity. With no surgery or drugs involved, you’ve got nothing to lose!
