Frequently Asked Questions
Reflexology is an ancient practice that is based on a theory that all organs, glands, muscles, and the skeletal system can be stimulated via points on the feet, hands, and outer ears. The pathways between these pressure points and other parts of the body are connected via the nervous system. Reflexology is predominantly performed on the feet, but can also be done on other extremities like the hands and ears. For more information, visit the blog.
Reflexology incorporates a number of presses, pulls and rotations. Your reflexology therapist will use their thumbs and fingers to manipulate and affect the nervous system. Reflexology is generally a dry practice; no oil or lotion is used.

As with any physical therapy, reflexology has the capacity to affect the body both positively and negatively. Reflexology targets the nervous system, and as such your body’s immunity may be compromised. As the old saying goes: sometimes you have to get worse before you get better.
Ensure that you are always well hydrated and continue to drink water after your session. Dehydration impairs the body’s ability to flush away toxins. If you’re going to eat, we recommend having something small no less than two hours prior. For reflexology, it’s best not to have lotion, moisturiser or any other balm on the skin; clean, dry skin is the best surface for reflexology. Remember that reflexology is performed on the feet, so give yourself plenty of time to be cleaned and dried.
Your reflexologist will always strive to make you feel as secure, safe and comfortable as possible while they are in your home. Your reflexologist will likely ask for a history of your health conditions to ascertain how best to address them. Reflexology involves pressure on the sensitive areas of the feet, so keep this in mind when choosing this modality. Feel free to communicate openly with your reflexologist – they are a professional and here to help!
