Why would working on someone's feet cause effect in another part of your body? Have you ever thought that the bottoms of your feet could be reflex points for each part of your body?
A Reflexologist will by hand or tool, will work the reflex points in the feet, hands or ears, or all three. When a tender spot is found, the Reflexologist will work that spot to break up congestion that is in that area.
Those congested areas short circuit the messages sent by the nervous system to the brain. So when cleaned out by way of Reflexology, your body then can start working in the way that it was created to do so.
If you are not well hydrated, or if the congestion is released too quickly, it can make you uncomfortable, because of the release of toxins from the effected part of the body. This is all good, but you may not want to work through 'detox' quite so fast.
You get to decide how you will work through congestion. Talk with your Reflexologist to help her know how your body responds to the work she is doing.
Foot Reflexology can improve the well being of a person. It also can restore health in conditions that stubbornly resist more conventional approaches.
Frequently I am asked how often should a person have a treatment. My response is that you need to decide how quickly your body can handle detox. Though it is advised that you are seen once a week for 3 weeks. After the 3 weeks we can evaluate how you are feeling. The treatment could then go to once a month for 3-6 months and then revisit again. You and your body, and your condition will be the best judge of how often you will need a treatment.
