Many Reflexology books mention the possibility of
a healing crisis occuring after a refelxology session.
What is a healing crisis?
,Answer: Reflexology activates the body's healing
power, so some form of reaction can usually be
expected as the body attempts to re-balance itself.
This is commonly referred to as a "healing crisis", and
can also be called "a cleansing in progress".
A client's constitution, history, nature of the illness,
age, lifestyle, ability to respond to the reflexology
session, as well as his or her attitude to the session,
will all have an effect on the treatment.
Some of the common reactions to a reflexology
session are increased urination, flatulence, increased
perspiration, dizziness, nausea, tiredness, or a
temporary outbreak of a disease that has been
suppressed. This is the body's attempt at re-balancing and the client should take things easy
during this cleansing process. It is recommendd that
reflexology be performed with at least 3 days in
between sessions to provide for this healing time.
