Reflexology is a hands-on treatment that focuses on applying light pressure to specific points on your feet or hands. The goal is to help you relax and kick-start your body’s own healing abilities.

Think of it as similar to acupressure or acupuncture but without needles. Reflexologists understand that certain spots on your feet and hands are connected to your body’s organs and glands. By massaging these spots, we aim to stimulate the body’s natural energy channels.

If your body’s energy flow gets stuck, it can throw things off balance. Reflexology aims to remove these blockages, allowing your body’s energy to flow smoothly once again, and helping to restore a sense of normalcy and wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during a reflexology session?

During a reflexology session, you’ll experience a soothing application of gentle pressure to various points on your feet or hands. These points are carefully chosen because they’re believed to correlate with different organs and glands in your body. The purpose is to help you achieve a state of relaxation and support your body’s inherent healing process.

Are there any potential side effects of reflexology that I should be aware of?

Reflexology is generally considered safe and side effects are typically minimal. However, like any therapy that stimulates the body, some individuals might experience certain reactions.

After a reflexology session, you might find yourself more relaxed or feel a heightened sense of wellbeing. However, due to the nature of reflexology in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities and energy flow, some people may experience temporary symptoms like mild fatigue, increased urination, or emotional sensitivity. These are usually a sign that your body is responding to the treatment and starting to self-regulate and heal.

Is reflexology safe during pregnancy?

Reflexology is generally considered safe during pregnancy and can even provide a range of benefits, such as aiding relaxation and reducing pregnancy discomforts. However, it’s important to note that each person and each pregnancy is unique.

Your practitioner will explain that there are specific points in the feet and hands that they may avoid during pregnancy because they could potentially stimulate contractions. Furthermore, if you’re experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, have a history of complications in labour, or have certain health conditions, you should speak to your GP before starting any new therapy, including reflexology.

Can reflexology induce labour?

Certain points on your hands and feet are believed by some practitioners to potentially stimulate contractions when massaged, but the evidence supporting the claim is anecdotal and not backed by extensive scientific research.

How long does a reflexology session take?

A reflexology session typically lasts between 45 minutes to an hour. This gives your reflexologist ample time to apply light pressure to specific points on your feet or hands.
