What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a popular complementary therapy sometimes used by many people living with medical conditions including cancer, to improve their wellbeing and quality of life. It involves applying gentle pressure to the feet or occasionally the hands. 

It aims to bring about a state of relaxation and help the body’s own process of homeostasis (the bodies natural mechanism for maintaining balance).

  • Reflexology works on energy pathways.
  • It aims to relax you, ease stress and tension and help with general well being.
  • Reflexologists believe that certain points on the feet or hands correspond to organs, muscles and areas in the body.

Reflexology promotes deep relaxation, and this can be very beneficial in reducing stress levels. This can bring an improved sense of wellbeing in clients.

Reducing the high stress levels often associated with long term conditions can potentially bring many benefits to both patients and their carers. 

Relaxation, affective touch and the therapeutic relationship can support the lifestyle changes needed to promote better health.  

Many charities and professional organisations working in the mental health sector also use reflexology as a supportive therapy. For example you can find reflexology listed on the Royal Society of Psychiatrists website and also on Mind’s website too. And MND society too  https://www.mndassociation.org/sites/default/files/2022-12/6B-Complementary-therapies.pdf

Reflexology is also mentioned on the Royal Collge of Obstetricians website as a complementary therapy that can support women living with gynaecological conditions. Endometriosis patient information leaflet | RCOG
