Reflexology aims to restore the bodies natural balance by improving nerve and blood supply and by unblocking nerve impulses. Pressure using thumbs and fingers is applied on the feet and hands to stimulate these reflex areas and promote a response from an area far removed from the stimulated tissue via the nervous system and acupuncture meridians.

Experts estimate that up to ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Reflexology is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.

Reflexology can also help specifically address a number of health issues:

  • Relieve discomfort for expectant mothers.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Improve hormonal imbalance and reduce “hot flashes” associated with menopause

Whist taking medication?

Are There Times When I Shouldn't Have Reflexology?

While reflexology is an extremely safe healing practice, it is important to be aware of a few contraindications or times when reflexology might not be a wise choice. These contraindications include:

  • Reflexology on the foot is discouraged in patients with foot fractures, unhealed wounds, or active gout in the foot. Patients with osteoarthritis that impacts the foot or ankle, or those with vascular disease of the legs or feet, should consult with their primary provider prior to beginning reflexology on the feet. An acceptable alternative would be to use reflexology on the hands
  • Clients who report current thrombosis or embolism (which is an obstruction of the pulmonary artery or a branch of it by a free-floating blood clot or embolism) should not receive reflexology therapy. Since reflexology improves circulation, it could potentially cause a clot to move towards the heart or brain.
  • For women in early pregnancy (the first 6 weeks), the reflexology session is altered by treating the uterine and ovarian reflex points more gently or by avoiding them altogether. In general, caution should be exercised during pregnancy because of reports that stimulation may cause contractions.
  • Babies and young children will receive benefit from many techniques, but rarely have the patience for a whole session. Thus, sessions are abbreviated in length.
  • If you are using other touch therapies, such as massage, allow at least 48 hours between touch therapy sessions to avoid an overload on your system.

In general, practitioners will stay away from open wounds, and may choose to wear plastic gloves or not to treat areas that are compromised.
