What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands, and ears, which correspond to every part, gland, and organ of the body.  Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.

What Happens in a Reflexology Session?

The client is in a quiet, relaxing environment, lying in a comfortable position.  For foot reflexology, the therapist will work on the feet for 60 minutes.   During the session, the therapist will fill in the RAC Health Record Form and also discuss a treatment plan with the client.

Is Reflexology different that Massage Therapy?

Reflexology is not massage as understood in the systematic and scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body and is not referred to as such.  It stands alone and separate from other therapies or any other form of practice or treatment.  It may however, enhance and/or complement other practices.

How Can Reflexology Help Me?

The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, injury, stress or disease, it is in a state of “imbalance” and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively.  When one part of the body is not functioning well, the effect is felt throughout the entire system.

The application and the effect of the therapy are unique to everyone.  Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet and by working on these points the Reflexology Therapist can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body.  Tensions are eased and circulation and elimination are improved.  This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself at its own pace.

Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, opens the flow in blocked nerves and helps promote the natural functioning and healing of the body.  Reflexology does not diagnose or prescribe. The whole body is treated rather than a specific condition.

Reflexology helps to balance the physical, mental and emotional aspects of your whole body.  If an organ or gland is underactive or over active, Reflexology can help return it to a normal level.
