How does reflexology work?
The layers of skin on the soles of the feet contain thousands of sensory receptors.
Some of these receptors respond to pressure or stretch, some to light touch, some to temperature, some to movement of hairs, and some to vibration.
These receptors sit at the end of long nerves. When receptors are activated, they trigger a change in the voltage difference across the nerve cell membrane, which, if sufficient, is converted into an electrical signal, or nerve impulse.
The nerve impulse is in turn propagated along the long body of the nerve cell.
Thousands of nerves that supply sensation to the foot travel and join up to eventually forming larger named nerves as they ascend the leg, ultimately entering our vertebral column. From there they ascend to join the spinal cord, entering tracts, transmitting the touch and pressure sensations to certain areas of the brain, where they are interpreted.
Nerves that originate from different vertebral levels detect sensation in different areas of the foot, known as dermatomes.
The combination of techniques used in a Reflexology treatment, namely the alternation of light and firm touch, varying pressure at varying points, and gentle but specific movements of joints and soft tissue, covering all dermatomes, means that many more receptors are activated than would be the case in the normal day to day function of the foot.

Reading this post made me reflect as a therapist. Do my clients really know what to expect from a Reflexology session? Do they really understand what Reflexology is? Is this the right option for a client?
This is why I believe initial consultations, follow up consultations, speaking after each session to give feedback and agreeing an action / treatment plan is so important! It’s as important as the therapy treatment itself. I’ll endeavour to be true to my client and offer the best advice, recommendations or suggest referrals when it is the best course of action or appropriate. Our wellness journeys are not always clear cut, so I’d like to think I’m a catalyst and a facilitator for self improvement and change. Hence my ethos Attune | Attain | Maintain.
