One thing I am asked in my working capacity as a Reflexologist over and over again, is whether reflexology will cure a problem or a condition. It could be trying to conceive for a baby, or relieving pain, boosting a lowered immune system, going into labour, improving sex drive or energy levels, even losing weight (NB: there are claims that reflexology may help with all these).
The answer is always the same: 'it might help'. There are unfortunately no guarantees. You see, Reflexology is a very individual treatment which effects people in different ways, as every person is different so is the individual response. There are hundred's of people that claim reflexology has helped them in one way or another but there is no clinical certainty. One thing for sure is reflexology will almost always do good. It will almost certainly lower blood pressure, lower stress levels, improve circulation and help flush out toxins. You may find you have a better night's sleep after a session or just feel more relaxed. Both these reactions however, should not be underestimated since 'a good night's sleep' or simply 'being relaxed' are times when our bodies do the most good, it is when our inner healing is most likely to be engaged. It's when our non essential systems, such as digestive, skin and reproductive, receive more oxygen and nutrients, it's when our mind and body are most likely to be at peace. Reflexology helps the body to restore balance naturally. Our bodies are designed to deal with most things naturally, it's just that modern life prevents this from happening.
With reflexology you haven't really got anything to lose, only the potential to gain. The best way to find out if Reflexology will help is simply to try it.
