Why you should try it
Almost anyone can enjoy a reflexology treatment, and it's a particularly useful treatment if you're less mobile or recovering from surgery.
It's based on the idea of energy lines throughoout the body. Then pressure is applied to certain points on these energy lines, it both soothes stress and encourages other parts of the body to recover and heal.
What to expect during your reflexology treatment
First, you'll be taken through a quick health assessment by your therapist so they can understand your medical history.
Then you get to enjoy your treatment however you like. That might be in a comfy chair in your home or on the massage table your therapist will bring. They'll clean your feet first, then massage them with wax or oil.

Reflexology is best viewed as a way to soothe anxiety and stress.
But if you're a believer in energy lines within the body, this treatment's also believed to help with other conditions in that way. Those conditions include migraines, constipation, sciatica, back pain and fatigue.
In reality, the reflexology and acupuncture are completely different. As a manual treatment, reflexology is performed with hands rather than acupuncture needles. It also targets hands and feet, not specific pain points on the body.
Reflexology is a safe treatment to book if you’re pregnant, but check your therapist’s bio to make sure they offer reflexology for pregnancy before you book. Otherwise, try our specialist pregnancy treatment.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, your GP should be able to advise on whether to book or not.
Otherwise, to keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
