What is Reflexology, and what are its benefits? It's much more than a simple foot massage.

Although there is a lot to cover, we will only briefly touch on the basics of reflexology.

What is reflexology, you ask?

Reflexology involves applying pressure to certain reflex points of the foot. These are the points that correspond to different organs and body areas. This treatment is said induces healing, and can even be used to alleviate certain ailments.

Relaxology is one of the most loved types of massage. The purpose and practice behind the treatment go much deeper than the skin or muscles. One treatment might include: Kneading the soft, fleshy ball of the feet, pulling on and pushing deeper into the arch with your heel, tracking around the heel, and other movements.

What makes reflexology different from a foot massage?

While the two treatments may look very similar, there is a lot to be aware of. Both can prove to be beneficial. A foot massage is different from a reflexology one.

The manipulation of tissues is used to relax, ease tension, and increase circulation. This can improve your overall well-being and health.

Reflexology, however, uses a targeted, pressure point massage to restore the flow and energy throughout the body. The treatment focuses on feet but can include hands and ears.

This treatment may have many benefits.

What are their benefits?

Reflexology is a great way to address everything from headaches to sinus problems and stomach issues. If you feel sensitivity or tenderness in an area stimulated it could be a sign of bodily weakness or imbalances.

Reflexology works by manipulating nerve endings and applying pressure repeatedly to open blocked energy channels. It's believed that reflexology works by moving the flow of blood and nutrients as well as nerve impulses. This is said to improve overall health and balance.

Other potential benefits

  • To purify the body from toxins
  • Boost your immune system
  • Increase circulation
  • Promote healing
  • Balance energy

However, there might be questions you have about the treatment. Let's find out.

What's the average cost for a reflexology treatment?

As with any massage therapy or spa treatment, the prices for reflexology vary from one spa to another. The prices for reflexology are generally comparable to a traditional masseuse. You can expect a $40-90 session for a 1-hour session and $30-50 to 30 minutes for a 3-hour session.

What is a Reflexology session?

The treatment can last between 30 and 60 minutes. But it is possible to last up an hour. You can have a chat with your reflexologist to discuss problems such as constipation or tension headaches.

During the session, you are required to wear clothing and sit or lie down. The therapist might rub, press on, or squeeze points on your feet. The therapist will focus on particular areas in order to treat specific conditions. The therapist may focus on specific areas, such as your toes in the case of sinus problems. The therapist may also address the whole foot, in order to strengthen each system.

Important Things to Keep in mind:

  • Before you begin to eat, please wait at most one hour after the massage.
  • Reflexology should not be performed if you are currently pregnant. A prenatal massage is a better choice.
  • Drink water after treatment to get rid of toxins or lactic acid buildup.
  • You should consult a doctor if your foot is hurt, has a problem with blood vessels or you have varicose or clot-related issues.
