What is Reflexology?

Reflexology works reflex points in the feet  that represent the body in miniature. Each reflex point connects with a specific organ, gland, or body part. Our bodies are equipped with self-healing facilities, but these often fail to work properly because vital energy pathways are blocked as a result of degeneration and stress. Through the application of thumb or finger walking techniques the nerve pathways are stimulated, thus restoring homeostasis, a Greek word meaning "balance". Some examples of restoring balance in the body are blood sugar, body temperature, and hearth rate. When homeostasis is maintained, the body in healthy. The reflexologist does not diagnose specific conditions; but if a particular reflex is tender or if an area of congestion under the skin is felt, it indicates the corresponding body area is in need of stimulation to boost its natural healing powers.

What’s the difference between massage and reflexology?

Massage is the palpitation of soft tissues and muscles whereas reflexology is the stimulation of nerve pathways.

What can I expect during a reflexology session?

 The response to reflexology during a session is as unique as the individual experiencing the session. You may perspire, especially through the hands, feet, and head during a session which is a natural form of detoxification. You also may feel chilled and thirsty following or accompanying this phenomenon. As the toxins leave the body, the natural reaction is lowered body temperature and the need to replenish fluids. Muscle contractions may occur as a response to toxic release and to induced relaxation. A sharp prickling like that of a pin, tenderness, or pain generally represents an area of congestion. As I work these areas of congestion, the painful area often dissipates resulting in the release of toxins. Feelings of nausea, dizziness, or the need to urinate during a session may occur. Again, these are individual reactions and generally pass quickly.

What can I expect aftger a reflexology session?

 The benefits of reflexology continue after a session. In fact, the more sessions one has received, the longer the benefits last. Initially, you may feel very tired, as relaxation may be foreign to you. As the endocrine system reaches balance through the relaxation response, you will feel rejuvenated and have more energy. There may be a change in sleep patterns, including a deeper, calmer rest. Accompanying this response is a greater sense of well-being and improved self-esteem. As water intake is recommended, you may experience frequent urination, perhaps with a cloudy, odorous character. This indicates that the process of detoxification is clearing the body. Frequent bowel movements may occur during this period as well. Discharge from the body is another benefit after a session, as is a skin breakout. Inner balance is achieved and detoxifying symptoms are relieved as overall health is restored.
