What Is a Typical Session Like?
A typical treatment is 60 minutes long and begins with a health history form and consultation about your health and lifestyle. The reflexologist will use the information to customize the therapy.
You may then be asked to remove your shoes and socks and sit comfortably in a reclining chair or on a massage table. The reflexologist will assess the feet and stimulate various points to identify areas of tenderness or tension.
Brisk movements and massage may be used to warm the hands and feet. Finger or thumb pressure is then applied to the foot using reflexology techniques. Lotion or oil may be used, and the reflexologist may also use instruments like balls, brushes, and dowels.
There is currently no regulation of reflexology in the United States. You may want to choose a therapist who is certified in Reflexology.
What Does Reflexology Feel Like?
Most people find reflexology, for the most part, to be very relaxing. Reflexology shouldn't be painful. If you feel
discomfort, be sure to tell the reflexologist. He or she should work within your comfort zone.
Some areas may be tender or sore, and the reflexologist may spend extra time on these points. The soreness should decrease with pressure.
If you're ticklish, not to worry. The reflexologist applies firm pressure to the feet.
How Will I Feel Afterward?
Most people feel calm and relaxed after a reflexology session. Occasionally, some people feel nausea, sleepiness, and mood swings.
If you have foot ulcers, recent injury, foot or ankle wounds, gout, or a cardiovascular condition, reflexology may not be appropriate or safe.
Reflexology may also not be right for people with diabetes, osteoarthritis (affecting the ankle or foot), circulatory problems, active infections, gallstones, kidney stones, or certain types of cancer. Pregnant women should avoid reflexology IN THE FIRST AND LAST TRIMESTER.
