Moving Forward in Reflexology

Those familiar with the general tone of writing on these pages will be aware I often attempt to present the reader with referenced reflexology articles, rather than simply offering my personal opinion. However, this particular blog contains many of my own reflections and personal opinions. A reflexology colleague referred to it as a ‘marmite piece’; […]

Verbal Communication and Client Emotional Disclosure in Reflexology – Practitioner Survey Findings

The survey was an informal existential enquiry designed to explore the attitudes of professional practitioners regarding verbal communication and client emotional disclosure within their reflexology practice. The survey findings suggest verbal communications (instructional, supportive or explanatory) to be fairly common in reflexology. The findings also suggest the presence of client emotional content to be fairly […]

A Place for Love in Reflexology?

Is there a place for love in the reflexology exchange?  Is it a relevant subject?  Should we even draw attention to the concept?  Does the concept hold any measurable, clinical value? As our wider therapeutic modality moves forward in attempting to define a more precise representation of the art of reflexology – these are certainly […]

To Treat or Not to Treat, That is the Question – Fear and Contraindication in Reflexology

I initially qualified in reflexology via one of the more overly cautious training bodies here in the U.K.  Realistically, if I had continued to adhere to the ‘rules’ I was initially asked to follow, I probably would not still be in practice today.  The list of contraindications promoted by the training provider doubled in size during my […]

The Therapeutic Relationship in Reflexology

The term therapeutic relationship might also be termed a helping or working alliance.  The term can often be used to describe the working relationship between any health-care professional and a client or patient.  A great deal of research has been undertaken in the field of counselling and psychotherapy related to exploring the nature of therapeutic […]

Reflexology Flavours

My personal stance of practice in reflexology is heavily influenced by the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, principally because I completed my first auricular acupuncture course mid-way through my reflexology training.  At the time I can recall feeling relieved to be introduced to a health philosophy where the emotions remained integrally placed.  I can also […]
