A reflexology session generally starts with an overview of your medical history with the reflexologist. This ensures the practitioner understands your needs and concerns and is aware of any underlying health conditions you may have. Next, you will sit in a comfortable chair or lay on a massage table. Clients remain fully clothed during treatments except for the feet and lower leg.
After sanitizing the feet, the reflexologist will then activate the reflex points on the hands, feet, and ears that correspond with one side of the body, and continue to the other side until the whole body has been treated. If a reflexologist finds pain, tightness or energetic blockage in any of the reflex points, they will apply pressure to that area to promote healing elsewhere in the body.
The reflexologist will often end the session in a way that calms and relaxes the client. Don’t feel rushed to bring yourself back to the present moment too quickly. Take a moment to enjoy your relaxed state. Often the reflexologist will recommend that you drink water and rest as necessary following treatment.
