As a Massage Therapist knowledge of Reflexology makes treatments more effective
Massage Therapist using Reflexology to make treatment more effective

Does your Massage treatment include the feet?

Lis Kunzi, who has been practicing Reflexology for 20 years has heard time and again from clients that have just had a massage, and then a couple days later book a reflexology treatment.

When she talks to her clients they tell her that they love massage, but it doesn’t completely relax them, they feel like something is missing, and often further questions reveal that they missed having their feet touched.

Without that work on the feet, which carry us everywhere we go, they feel like the session was unfinished.

When talking to therapists it seems there is a different set of problems, some therapists just don’t like to touch feet, they feel like they are dirty, and the skin is thick, so common techniques don’t work as well.

Or they feel silly when a client asks a question about what they are doing. Many clients have a little knowledge of reflexology and assume their therapist will have even more, and that is just not usually true.

A Massage therapist with knowledge of reflexology is better at their job.

Clients love having their feet touched. As you might know, reflexology is an ancient healing art supported on the belief that our feet have reflex points that correspond to the body’s organs (liver, kidneys, lungs etc.), and systems (lymphatic, endocrine, muscular, etc.), so by applying pressure to these reflex points we can positively affect the body’s health.

When our energy levels are out-of-balance it impacts our health. When our body is in-sync, we feel good and can better enjoy life.

Adding a few reflexology techniques to the end of a massage treatment will further enhance a client’s experience, giving them the best of both modalities. 

On April 6th, join Liz Kunzi for a workshop is to teach Massage Therapists specific reflexology techniques that you could add just before the conclusion to a massage treatment.

You will learn ‘what is’ reflexology, moving on to discuss the many benefits that reflexology brings to a client’s health. I’ll talk about the differences between Eastern versus Western approaches, and include the differences between massage and reflexology.
