What is Reflexology?
A Reflexology massage is a focused technique which stimulates the nervous system through the application of pressure to specific areas on the foot (and hands or facial area). Reflexology incorporates unique micromovement techniques to manipulate areas which correspond to specific internal organs and stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system.
The treatment is not supposed to hurt so feel free to consult with your therapist if you feel any discomfort during your massage.

What are the Benefits of Reflexology Treatment?
Reflexology is a great way to help you feel less stressed, more energized, and more relaxed. The massage technique used by reflexologists encourages the production of dopamine and serotonin. This is commonly known as the Happy Hormone, the chemical that helps you feel accomplished and content. Some people with chronic medical conditions find that they feel less discomfort and pain after several sessions of Reflexology.
Plus, others that have received reflexology treatment have reported that it has helped them recover from injuries, ease chronic pain, boost their immune system and improve their overall quality of life. In one study, researchers found that hand, foot, and ear reflexology significantly reduced symptoms of PMS in older women.
Is Reflexology Safe During Pregnancy?
Reflexology is often used as an effective method of pain management during late-stage pregnancy. It can be used to soothe aches and pains in your hips, back and joints. Some studies show that reflexology can even help reduce lower back and pelvic pain caused by your growing belly.
There is even a special branch of maternity reflexology which specializes in incorporating massage into pre-conception, antenatal and body priming for labour and childbirth.
Who Can Receive Reflexology Treatment?
Generally, reflexology is safe for anyone including those living with serious chronic health conditions. The treatment is designed to relieve the pain and tension that comes from the daily stress of standing and walking. Since the treatment is noninvasive, reflexology can be worth incorporating into your routine as part of a balanced lifestyle. Although it is recommended that you talk to your doctor first if you have any underlying conditions.
