Reflexology and Foot Massage: Are they the same?

Tacoma Reflexology

Reflexology is applied to the feet, hands and ears to illicit a response from a distant part of the body, such as a target organ or a gland that needs to be healed. A foot massage is a foot massage. It is that part with an issue that needs to be resolved, such as a sprain or perhaps simply a tension. It deals only with soft tissue while a reflexologist’s actions affect the nerves.

While reflexology is more involved and more intense in scope than a foot massage, its benefits are more far-reaching and sustainable. Pinpointing the right pressure points, it covers a variety of conditions – stress and anxiety, sleep disorders, digestive problems, headaches and back pain, arthritis, and even sports injuries.

A massage therapist skilled in the art of reflexology is better trained at foot anatomy, knows the connected neural pathways, and can design a treatment regimen for a holistic approach to a particular patient’s condition. It may be more expensive than even your deep foot massage but reflexology goes beyond the gains of foot health.
