Foot reflexology


Foot reflect all parts of the body, and going through reflexology stimulates, calms or activates organs, muscles, nerves, circulation etc. depending on the patient’s problem. Reflexology is a technique by which you restore the energy balance of the body using a special type of massages through the stimulation and compression of specific reflex points on the feet, energetically related to organ systems. It also allows you to exercise preventive and therapeutic action of body imbalances.


How does it work and how long does the treatment last?

The patient undergoes a complete medical interview, where the therapist will make him or her lay on the bed and examine the foot verifying issues such as colour, shape, temperature and the presence of calluses, corns etc. Once the testing begins, a massage will be performed with the thumb exerting pressure or friction. The pressure must be carried out in a robust way, without tickling or exceed the patient’s pain threshold.

The treatment lasts 45 minutes.


What are the signs?

Through reflected stimulation, you will release endorphins. The pressure on the reflex zone, which is responsible for sending communications to the brain, helps intervene in the problem.

Stimulation of the lymphatic system, favoured by the pressuring reflex points that would stimulate the lymphatic circulation, will have beneficial effects on the whole organism as well as stimulation of the blood system, with the purpose of improving the circulation and decreasing the presence of slag.


You will benefit from this treatment if you suffer from:

– Joint pain, migraines, headaches

– Digestive disorders, menstrual disorders

– Mood disorders, stress

– Asthenia, insomnia


How many sessions are needed?

On average, 6-8 sessions are considered necessary but vary according to the patient’s condition.


Are there any side effects?

There are no known side effects. Even children can be subjected to foot reflexology therapies.
