Hello friends! It has been a minute since my last blog post. I don't know about you, but this year is just flying by - it's going to be Halloween soon already! What the heck??


Anyway... my topic today is Reflexology! I am sure most of you have heard of it, but what is it exactly? What are the benefits? Is it really just a glorified foot massage? Not exactly...

Reflexology is based on zone therapy and reflex points dating back to the ancient Egyptians. You know the age old reflex test of a doctor hitting your knee with a little hammer? Not like that, but it's funny to think about.


The hands and feet are linked to these reflex points that are then connected to the very complicated weavings of your organs. From here, the reflex points are divided up into "zones" that benefit some areas over others. Now, I am one that always says "everything is connected", because it is true - however, some points benefit areas better than others.

Feet are traditionally worked, but yes, reflexology also applies to the hands and even the ears! The feet are said to be worked for more chronic or larger issues, while hands and ears are for more acute issues. There are varying theories on this and exactly where each point is, but one thing that can be agreed on? It works. Have you ever had a pedicure or a manicure where they throw in a little massage, too? Just imagine that, but for 30, 45, 60, or even 90 minutes! It's bliss! (As long as you are not too ticklish... which can be worked around.)

At the very least, reflexology promotes blood flow to the nervous system and with that brings rest and tension relief. This state then allows you to fully relax and bring your body back down to a state of healing or homeostasis (balance).

What questions can I answer for you about reflexology? Have you ever had it done? How did it work out for you?

I hope this gave you a little insight on reflexology. This is a great addition to your next massage or as a session all on its own! It is very important, as with any massage, to drink plenty of water afterwards. Some reflex points may wake up zones that have not had a good workout in a while!

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you soon!
