Foot Reflexology


What is foot reflexology?

It is a manual alternative therapy, its foundations come from ancient medicines, such as Chinese, Egyptian or Hindu, which is based on the pressure on the reflex zones of the body that we find in the feet, because in them we have reflected our whole body.

Our feet are connected to all the vital organs of our body. The foot and its sole represent in schematic form the totality of the body and its organs. This is the principle of foot reflexology.



What does it consist of?

The therapy consists of pressing certain areas of the foot to stimulate self-healing. This is achieved, according to Eastern theory, through the energy channels or by the nervous system, according to Western theory.

By pressing and massaging these points, different ailments are relieved, and the state of health is improved.

Occasionally, it will help you to relieve pain or treat specific symptoms. Regularly, you will help a diseased organ to function better, improve circulation, promote the elimination of toxins, or prevent various ailments.


What is the treatment like?

To perform a reflexology session, the first thing to do is to seek the comfort of the person who will receive the treatment. For this, the massage room should have a good stretcher that contributes to the relaxation and well-being of the person receiving the treatment.

Once the person is placed in a comfortable position, the therapist puts in his hands a few drops of vegetable oil or cream that will spread gently on both feet, this helps to soften the hands of the therapist, the feet of the person being treated and the manipulation of the area is easier and more effective treatment.


Is applied with kneading and back and forth movements (starting at the ankles and ending at the tips of the toes, and then repeated in the opposite direction) these movements are very relaxing and stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation.

From there begins the reflexology treatment, and both the therapist and the depth of its digit pressures, will be adapted to the person who is going to receive it.

The treatment can be either general, working the points of the feet by zones through different reflexology techniques, or focused on a more specific problem, which will have to focus on the point or specific area where the body part to be treated is reflected.
