Sole Purpose Reflexology
I am now a proud practitioner of Reflexology for Lympatic Drainage! Find out more about this modality here:
Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes on the feet, hands and ears that correspond to every part, gland and organ. Through application of pressure to these reflexes, Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.
Depending on the type of reflexology you will be receiving, you will either be seated in a zero gravity chair or lying on a massage table
The reflexology therapist will clean your feet and inspect them for any conditions such a bunions, hammertoe, etc.
The therapist will then do a series of techniques to work all the reflexes. Even if you are coming for relief of a certain condition, the whole foot is worked. There may be some additional work done on your area of concern.
A reflexology session is teamwork - the client may feel tender reflexes that may correspond to a related reflex. The reflexology therapist may feel disturbances under the skin or some other abnormality that may indicate blocked energy.
At the end of the session, the client and reflexology therapist discuss findings and anything else that may have come up during the session.
Clients are encouraged to drink a good amount of water, rest, and pay attention to how they feel over the next 24 hours.
