Get Back Your Flex with Reflexology

Who does not enjoy feeling relaxed after a stressful day? There will be a point in time where you get sore, achy, or get a down feeling. Reflexology can help with ALL of this and more issues that you may not be aware of. Learning about what reflexology is, what the types are, and the benefits that come from it will help you to determine if this type of treatment is good for you.


What is Reflexology?

 It is a type of massage that therapists use to relieve tension and treat numerous illnesses within someone’s body. Reflexology is primarily based on the idea that the points in your ears and face, hands, and feet contain reflex points which connect to absolutely every part of the human body. It is considered a natural method of healing that does not require the use of pharmaceutical intervention. 


It is also common to receive aromatherapy treatment during the reflexology treatment. At Wholistic Massage Centre, our Reflexology treatments come with the use of aromatherapy as well. We do this so that you can receive the most from your time with us. 


Types of Reflexology

When looking into Reflexology, people need to remember that three distinct types are practiced. There are similarities between the three, and there are also differences between them. Below you shall find the varying types of reflexology and more about them, so you can decide which type is best for you.



Reflex points located on the hands are usually more flexible than the ones found elsewhere on your body. It is said that because the reflex points of the human hand are deeper than the ones in the feet, more pressure is needed. There are also some unique benefits to receiving hand reflexology like:

  • Relief of Headaches
  • Circulatory improvement
  • Symptoms of allergies decrease
  • Pain relief in the back



The feet are usually one of the most used parts of our body. They go under insane amounts of stress, and sometimes the overuse can result in pain and high tension in our feet. The reflex points on your feet are closer to the surface of your skin, so you do not need to worry about the treatment hurting. The benefits of foot reflexology may include:

  • Relief of headaches and migraines
  • Increase in energy levels
  • Relief of Plantars Fasciitis pain
  • Improved Circulation in the body


Ear and Face

The ears and face are usually the most noticeable part of a human, and therefore other people can sometimes tell when just life, in general, has gotten to us. It can be shown through our facial expressions and even through wrinkles (Yikes!) The benefits of this include: 

  • Younger looking skin
  • Improved Sleep
  • Healing of Injuries
  • Reduction of insomnia


Reflexology is a hugely beneficial treatment, and we recommend trying it at least once in your life so that you can benefit from it as well.
