Reflexology For The Spirit

Use the Reflexology you Keep in your Toolbox

One nice thing I like about reflexology:  it’s adaptable.

You don’t have to do a lot to prepare for a reflexology  session.  Don’t get me wrong.  Your session preparation can be as elaborate as you can imagine and desire.  It can include music, incense, essential oils, enfolding comforters, gentle lighting, and anything else you want to add to support your client partner.

But when the going gets tough, all you have to do is gently touch a person’s hands or feet for a few moments.  Reflexology warm-ups and warm-downs are powerful.  And there are few to no contraindications to touch a person.

And, a person doesn’t have to be lying by the side of the road to qualify for a gentle touch and nothing more.

Reflexology works well with other modalities.  I love to add Reiki therapy and chakra healing but there are many more modalities that work fine.  The choice is up to you.

On a gurney or roadside, I would certainly add Reiki but, honestly, it’s not necessary.  Reflexology will do the job quite well.

Popular reflexology holds which are appropriate for gurney or roadside situations include simply holding the person’s hands  or feet.

If I can’t make contact any other way, a hand placed on a shoulder can be effective.

I like to begin a session with a gentle solar plexus hold.  After that, I might hold the person’s heels to offer comfort and support.  Gently holding a person’s lymphatic reflexes for a  minute can bring calm.

And, truthfully, Reflexology’s job is to bring about homeostasis.  This  happens in a session, no matter the circumstances.

At your table, reflexology will generate a different result during each session.  That’s because your client is different every day on a cellular level.   This daily difference produces a unique outcome at every session.

But, no matter the circumstance, reflexology is a heavy lifter in your toolbox.  It will not let you down.  After a session, don’t waste even a minute thinking you should have done something else or touched the person’s feet or hands another way.  Your hands did the right thing at the right moment for this person.
