Possible Reactions After a Reflexology Session

Reflexology will most likely help you feel a sense of calm and give you an overall sense of well-being. Other various reactions may also occur following a reflexology session.  Many of the reactions are positive signs that the body is attempting to return to a state of homeostasis (balance). Symptoms usually last for 24-48 hours. Reactions may include:

          *Increased vitality or relaxation

          *Change in sleeping pattern (deep sleep or sleepless during the

            night, more dreaming)

          *Tiredness (some clients find that they need more sleep in order

            for the body to rest and repair)

          *Skin rashes, pimples, or spots (due to elimination of toxins)

          *Frequent bowel movements/urination (cleansing, elimination

           of  toxins)

          *Increased mucus (nasal discharge, vaginal discharge)

          *Flu-like symptoms

          *Emotional release
