Reflexology as Energy Healing

Most of my writing has been dedicated to Reiki. Since many of my clients come to see me solely for reflexology (pun intended), I want to share some information about Reflexology. Reflexology, like Reiki, is energy healing.

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is manipulating or massaging the energetic reflex points in the feet, hands and ears. Each reflex corresponds to various parts of your body. Basically, the foot mirrors the body.

I love the feet. They work so hard for us. Our feet connect us with the beautiful Earth energy. A reflexology foot massage is a great way to show appreciation for your feet and your whole body.

Your body wants to stay in balance and has the ability to heal itself. Reflexology stimulates your body’s self repair capacity.

Reflexology works by sending energetic signals to through your nervous system to your brain. Your brain sends a healing current of energy to the corresponding organ or part of the body.

Reflexology also sends healing signals through your meridians to clear energy along those lines in your body. Your body gets an energetic tune up from a reflexology session.

During my distant Reiki sessions, I often send Reiki to reflex points on the feet.

Not only does reflexology work on your physical body, it also clears your mental and emotional bodies. For example, the balls of your feet hold your lung points. To Your lungs often carry old sadness or grief which you release with pressure to the refluxes on the balls.  To release frustration or anger you can massage the liver points on your right foot below the ball of the foot.

Ways to give Reiki during a Reflexology session

Reflexology, like Reiki, is a form of energy healing, especially when you get a session from someone attuned to Reiki.

Here are some ways to use Reiki during a reflexology session.

  • Send Reiki to the corresponding organ while working the points on the feet. For example, visualize Reiki going to the liver while activating the liver points on the feet.
  • Give distant Reiki to the chakras and aura while massaging the feet. For instance, you can send Reiki to the root chakra while working on the heel or the heart chakra while working on the balls of the feet.
  • Reiki the feet directly when one hand is still. Often when one hand is still while supporting the foot, while the other hand is applying pressure to various points, the clients draw in Reiki automatically. For example, my left hand may be supporting the middle of the foot while my right hand works the toes. The Reiki will often begin to flow from the hand that remains still.
  • Reiki from hands in motion. While the hands are moving giving reflexology, the Reiki may flow out the fingers or through the palm of the hand, especially if you intend the Reiki to flow. 

Just like you can give yourself Reiki sessions, you can give yourself reflexology. Here are a couple of charts to guide you. Your feet and body will thank you.
