Reflexology is an holistic therapy as it doesn’t focus on a particular area or set of symptoms, it aims to achieve balance of the mind, body and spirit as a whole.
A good reflexologist should cover all reflexes during a treatment and spend extra time on imbalanced reflexes found during the treatment, which may not be the reflexes that you expected to be imbalanced!
For example, if you regularly suffer from headaches you may expect a reflexologist to focus on the head, neck and eye reflexes. While the therapist may pay extra attention to these areas you may find that the imbalance is found in the shoulder reflexes because you had not known that the root of your headaches was in this area. If you’re headaches are caused by stress then the imbalance may be found in the solar plexus reflex or somewhere else. The imbalance may show in the kidney reflexes if your headaches are caused by dehydration.
