Guiding Principles of Reflexology
The reflexologist takes into account all aspects of the client’s being: body, emotion, mind, and spirit.
Reflexology therapists do not heal clients; the body repairs itself.
The reflexologist acknowledges that he or she is a participant in the session, rather than “the healer.” This is an acknowledgement that reflexology is offered to help bring the person back into balance so that the body can nurture and repair itself.
Humans consist of a physical and emotional body, with a mind and spirit that are all interdependent.
The reflexologist takes into account all aspects of the client’s being: body, emotion, mind, and spirit. A relaxed body can induce calm emotions, a serene mind, and an integrated spirit.
What makes reflexology different from other therapies?
- It is non-Invasive
- If you are experiencing pain in a specific body part, a Reflexology Therapist can help alleviate the pain by working on that reflex on a corresponding body part. For example, if you are experiencing pain on your hip, a Reflexology therapist can work the hip reflex point on your ears, feet, hands, face etc.
- Clothing is not removed
Aside from outerwear, such as shoes, mitts and hats, clothing is not removed, which can be appealing to many clients.
- Treats the entire body
While a therapist may only physically touch one body part, through the interaction of the body’s systems, reflexology improves the function of the entire body.
It is less expensive to stay healthy–keep your body functioning optimally through regular reflexology sessions-than to try to fix a problem after the fact. The average cost of a reflexology session is below the cost of other health care. In short, you get more for less!
- Is reflexology covered by insurance?
Clients must check their individual insurance plans and if it’s not, you can request to have it added to your coverage or ask your employer to include it in your group health insurance.
