Frequently Asked QuestionsDoes reflexology hurt?
When there is tenderness or sensitivity in a particular area this can be an indication that more work is needed on that area of the foot. Gradually as the area is worked the sensitivity diminishes and the related part of your body should feel better.
How will I feel after a reflexology treatment?
After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very definite way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation; sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is transitory and is believed to be part of the healing process.
This is vital information to feed back to the reflexologist as it shows how your body is responding to treatment. This will help the reflexologist to tailior a treatment plan specific to your needs.
How does reflexology work?
The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are "reflex" areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. Applying pressure to these reflex areas may promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways.
A scientific explanation is that the pressure may send signals that may balance the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce pain and stress.
