1. What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is an ancient healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the head, feet, and hands that correspond to every part of the body. Through the application of massage and pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, helps to re-balance the body, and provides preventative health care.

2. How can Reflexology reduce pain?

By working the reflex points, we can stimulate the body’s natural flow of energy and break-down the crystal deposits which may interfere with it.

3. Does my insurance cover Reflexology?

Some insurance companies do cover the cost of Reflexology under extended health benefits, if the Reflexologist is registered.

4. What is a typical Reflexology treatment like?

A typical treatment is about 60 minutes long. You will be asked to remove your shoes and socks so that your feet can soak in an Epsom salt foot-bath prior to hands-on treatment. You will then be asked to lie comfortably on a massage table while treatment is focused on the head, feet, and/or hands.

5. Do I have to have my feet touched?

No, it is not mandatory for you to have your feet touched during a Reflexology treatment. If you prefer, Reflexology treatments can be focused exclusively on the hands and/or head.

6. How should I expect to feel after a Reflexology treatment?

Reflexology feels different for everyone, but generally a sense of calm and well-being are common.

7. What does Reflexology treat?

Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Health found Reflexology to be helpful in reducing pain, anxiety, and depression; while improving relaxation and sleep. Other studies have shown that Reflexology can be highly beneficial in managing and reducing symptoms such as:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic migraines
  • Low back pain
  • Constipation
  • Painful menstrual cramps
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Reflexology is also often used for post-operative and palliative care.

8. Is Reflexology safe during pregnancy?

Absolutely! In fact, towards the final weeks of pregnancy, Reflexology can be a great way to help naturally induce labour without any added risk to mum or baby.
