If you’ve never experienced reflexology therapy, you should know that it’s much more than just a foot massage. Reflexology utilizes reflex points in the feet that correspond to specific organs in the body. A reflex massage targets these points to release toxins and relieve any ailments associated with a toxic build-up in those organs. At Reflexology by the Sea in Sea Girt, NJ, reflexologists apply pressure to reflex points in your feet to relieve stress and release blocked energy in the body, while providing a spa-like experience.
What to Expect From a Reflexology Visit
1. You Will Be Clothed
Because reflexology primarily works the feet and hands, there’s no need to remove your clothes like you would for another type of massage. You will either be lying down, and the reflexology session usually lasts about 60 minutes but can be longer. Tell your reflexologist about any pain or injuries you have..
2. They Will Work on the Feet and Hands
While some reflexology massages can work the entire body, most only work on the feet and hands, and sometimes the ears. The idea is that stimulating certain reflex points will encourage blood flow and nerve impulses upward through the body, detoxifying organs and correcting imbalances. Reflexology by the Sea focuses on foot reflexology only.
3. You May Experience Tenderness
Reflexology therapy utilizes applied pressure and strong kneading motions, so you may feel a bit sensitive at first. If a particular reflex point seems tender, there may be an imbalance in that corresponding organ. The more often you receive reflexology therapy, the less tender you will be as the imbalances begin to correct.
Drink water immediately following your reflexology massage and throughout the day to flush out any toxins that have been released. You should also wait one hour after the massage before eating.
