This is a gentle and painless therapy that causes the body to return to its natural state. Once you have completed this type of therapy, you find that your body works more naturally and has reached its own healthy balance.
Reflexology is meant to work on pains such as: migraines, back pain, infertility, sleep disorders, arthritis, stress related conditions and sports injuries. This type of therapy is not one that claims to cure you, it claims to sooth and ease your pain. Reflexology can be and in some cases should be used along side of conventional medications. This does not create any unwanted side effects. It does however increase the speed of your healing. This type of therapy can be used to relieve your pains as well as to maintain your healthy condition. Once you have successfully finished a session of reflexology you will find yourself wanting to continue even once your illness or pain is gone.
Once you have made the decision to give reflexology a try, it is important to find a reliable and qualified practitioner to trust your reflexology sessions with. It is not hard to find a great practitioner if you do the research first. Reflexology is growing in popularity, this makes the search for the perfect practitioner for you that much easier. The practitioner that you choose should have the appropriate qualifications as well as a personality and demeanor that you can feel comfortable with.

Once this practitioner has been chosen, you need to take the opportunity to make your first appointment immediately.

At your first session your practitioner will try their best to find out as much as they can about your present and past health conditions. This is the most important part of this type of therapy. Learning about the patient is vital before beginning a therapy such as reflexology. In this first session you will experience your first therapeutical session with your feet. Each person responds to this differently, and it is done slightly differently with each person. That is why it is so important to learn about the health history of each person. This background helps the practitioner decide on the preferred method of treatment. A treatment session can last up to an hour. Once your pain is pin-pointed, the practitioner will be able to use your feet to work your inner organs.
Following your first treatment, you will find that your body will react in many different ways. The way your body responds is important to report back to your practitioner. Most people after their first treatment feel completely relaxed and in a state of well being. The healing process can be different for some people, as long as you report your body’s responses to the treatment, your practitioner can work with its responses.
Reflexology is growing every year in popularity. Its ability to perform such alternative healing with such power is evidence enough that reflexology is an effective way to maintain your health as well as achieve a healthy state.
