The Secret Joys of Being a Holistic Reflexologist

by Laura Norman


So, you might ask, what is a holistic Reflexologist? Let’s start by looking at what a traditional Reflexologist might do. A traditional Reflexologist focuses on stimulating the reflex points and areas in the feet, and sometimes in the hands, that correspond to each organ, gland, and part of the body. In Holistic Reflexology the face and ears are worked in addition to the feet and hands.

Holistic Reflexology is based on the philosophy that Reflexology is part of a broader methodology that encompasses wellness for the whole person, i.e., the client’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. Holistic Reflexology is all about creating a healing environment and helping the client to experience profound relaxation–using Reflexology techniques that are very calming and soothing, that increase energy while balancing and strengthening the body, and that empower people in their lives.

Okay, Holistic Reflexology sounds nice. But what about those ‘secret joys’? Seeing the numbers of health and beauty professionals, artists, educators and even members of the general public who have earned certification and practice as Holistic Reflexologists, there must be something more than meets the eye about Holistic Reflexology. In talking with some who have studied Holistic Reflexology, it is clear that one of those ‘secret joys’ is that Holistic Reflexologists experience positive transformation in their own lives as well as in the lives of those they touch.

Linda is a mother who came to Holistic Reflexology because she was looking for a new way to support and nurture her family, especially her child who was asthmatic. Using the skills she learned, Linda has been able to strengthen family bonds and is convinced she has contributed greatly to alleviating her child’s asthma symptoms. "The amazing results my family and I experienced gave me the confidence and inspiration to begin a new career in Holistic Reflexology. Now I feel like I’m making a huge contribution to my community."

Peter is a massage therapist looking to advance his skills as a healer. He was interested in learning more about the non-intrusive, healing focus of Holistic Reflexology. "After just one class, I felt so uplifted. I experienced my own energy shifting and I instantly understood the healing value that I could provide to my massage clients. I discovered my path to true healing. I have found that Holistic Reflexology feels more like a meditation while performing it, so I can work on more clients in a day."

Want to know the real secret? Holistic Reflexologists love what they do. And, when you love what you do, it’s not work–it’s a joy. As one Holistic Reflexologist told me, "When you see people leave you after a session, feeling empowered and free of the stress and pain they came in with, newly refreshed, clear and energized, you understand why Holistic Reflexology is studied and practiced all over the world."
