Reflexologists, body workers, healers, whatever the title…we all have days when the clients seem to be lined up outside the door in an unending line.
OR, one client comes in for an appointment and it turns out to be a challenging day.
So, whether it’s one client or ten..days can be challenging.
What is a reflexologist to do?
One thing I do, no matter what, is take a power break.
A power break manifests itself in many ways:
- A short meditation of two or three minutes can completely change the energy – not only in your space, but in you as well. This meditation can stretch beyond the three minutes if your schedule allows. Do you have even fifteen minutes? Go for it!
- Take a clean air break and step outside for a moment or two. Breathe deeply. Enjoy the day – whatever it is. It doesn’t really matter whether you step out into the most beautiful day of the year or walk out to greet a major storm. The important thing is that you have stepped out of your space into the world for a moment.
- Find a quiet corner, lay down on the floor and prop your feet up the wall. This posture, for two minutes can change your energy dramatically. It can rejuvenate you for the rest of your day.
- Walk around your area for a moment and just do nothing. Walk around aimlessly. This will allow you to empty your head in a way no other activity can.
- Can you nap for two minutes? I’ve learned to do this and it is very refreshing. The ideal nap is fifteen minutes or more but two minutes can go a long way if it’s all you’ve got.
- Give yourself a quick Reiki session. A few minutes of Reiki therapy will offer much rejuvenation.
- Cut the cords. This is easy, quick, and very effective. Whenever you meet with another person, no matter how briefly, you connect on spiritual and emotional levels. When you cut the cords, you sever this connection. This cutting of the cords is important at least at the end of each day. Cutting the cords after each appointment is a positive move. Think of these cords as different colored ribbons attached at each end to you and the other person. Cutting them will offer a release for you which can be freeing.
Whatever you do, choose an activity you can rely on for rejuvenation, relaxation, stress release. Make this power break part of your day, every day.

Reflexology blessings to you!
Working a full day is challenging. Only another body worker or healer knows what a day full of appointments means to you, the reflexologist – physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally.
There are things you can do to minimize the fatigue encountered on just such a day.
One thing you can do that will help immensely is release the appointment when your client partner’s session comes to an end.
What you want is to release the person, the issues, the intention, the time spent to the universe.
When you do this, do not forget to “cut the cords” between you and the person to emphasize that the session is over.
You have done what you can for this person in the time allotted during the session. It’s time now for him/her to accept your healing efforts and return to the world.
Once you release the person, both the your client partner’s body and issues are gone from you until the next appointment.
The whole release may not take but a few moments. A suggestion is that you write a script for release and mentally repeat it as each client partner leaves your table.
If you are a ceremony person, you may write a ceremony of release to practice in your space at the end of each shift. This ceremony may include essential oils, smudging, prayer, Reiki therapy.
This releasing gesture seems easy enough but many people don’t do it. This release makes a difference in your health, your energy, your career.
Whatever you do, it’s important to release each and every client partner who comes to your table.
