Reflexology Massage FAQ

How does reflexology massage  work?
Reflexology is an alternative therapy that applies pressure to feet , hand or ears. Our reflexologist’s believe that applying pressure to particular areas can promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways.


For example:

What will I feel?
Most people find reflexology for the most part to be very relaxing. Reflexology shouldn't be painful. If you feel discomfort, be sure to tell the reflexologist. He or she should work within your comfort zone.

Is it ticklish?

The reflexologist will apply firm pressure to the feet, thereby avoiding any ticking sensation.

I’m diabetic - is this a problem?
You will need to be referred to us by your Doctor if you are diabetic.


Will it hurt?

Some areas may be tender or sore, and our reflexologist will spend extra time on these points. The soreness should decrease with pressure.

What does reflexology do?
Reflexology is a popular alternative therapy. Our therapist’s tell us that it promotes relaxation, improves circulation, reduces pain, soothes tired feet, and encourages overall healing.

I think I have a health problem, will reflexology fix it for me?

Reflexology is recommended as a complementary therapy and should not replace medical treatment.

What is a typical reflexology treatment like?
A typical treatment is 45 minutes to 60 minutes long and begins with a consultation about your health and lifestyle. You are then asked to remove your shoes and socks and lay on the massage table. You remain fully clothed. Our reflexologist’s will assess your feet and then stimulates various points to identify areas of tenderness or tension.

What does the therapist do?
The reflexologist then uses brisk movements to warm the feet up. Then pressure is applied from the toes to the heel according to your comfort.
