Frequently Asked Questions About Reflexology
What will I feel during my treatment? My clients often find that they feel an awareness in their own body corresponding to the sensitivities I am feeling in their feet. This can be a sensation of heat or cold or a feeling of energy passing into a part of the body which they are currently having health problems with. In this way we can work together to pinpoint areas of the body that can benefit from reflexology and look at more general lifestyle changes.
Will it hurt!? Reflexology is usually extremely relaxing and any discomfort felt should never be beyond what you are happy to accept. Pressure can easily be altered depending on the needs of the client.
What if my feet are ticklish? If a gentle but firm pressure is used ticklish feet are usually very receptive to reflexology, possibly because of their sensitivity. If your feet can't be worked on for any reason all the reflexes can be found and worked on your hands - many people find this form of treatment just as helpful.
What if my feet have verrucas, swelling, bunions etc? Verrucas, bunions, corns etc. all relate to the health of the reflexes on which they develop. Reflexology will help as it boosts circulation to the affected areas. (Verrucas can be worked around or covered with a plaster).
Can it ease aches & pains in my feet? Like a foot massage it will help relax the feet and improve circulation easing any pain. However specific aches in the feet also relate to areas of the body, so reflexology will go one step further.
