Treating your feet


I have just realised how long it has been since we had a chat! This is what life does when the sun shines and everybody is busy *smiles*

I've had two people come to me for reflexology this week, both very different but equally lovely. The first has had lots of treatments and loves it because she knows how it feels so good afterwards. My second client had never had reflexology before and was a little apprehensive. At the end of the treatment she did not want to put her shoes back on because her feet felt wonderful. That's what I love about my job - people leave feeling really content, relaxed and refreshed. It's a real privilege.

Reflexology is one of those treatments; the ones that people don't think they'll enjoy because they are worried about the state of their feet or they're ticklish. Neither of these is an issue for the person giving the treatment. 

Let's look at how you feel about your feet - they are not picture perfect, they smell by the end of the day, you haven't cut your toenails, there's a lot of dry skin... When we look at your feet we are not looking at those aspects. The only one of these that we will note is the dry skin because this can indicate where the imbalances are in your system as a whole. When people describe reflexology as reading the feet, they are not far off the mark.

The pressure during reflexology is not light and feathery - it's firm and definite. One of my friends is extremely ticklish but she loves to have reflexology because it is so relaxing.

The treatment has been around in different forms for hundreds of years - Chinese, Indian and Hopi culture all used variants before the modern development of the beginning of the twentieth century. 

The body is divided into ten zones and these are reflected in the feet and it's these that are worked in reflexology. Simple!

Cheery smiles,
