Reflexology versus foot massage

Thursday, September 17, 2020

If you have never enjoyed a reflexology session or a foot massage, you would be forgiven for believing that they are one and the same. There are, in fact, a number of important differences between these two types of treatments. These differences determine when and why you should choose one or the other, or even both.

Foot massages

A foot massage usually accompanies a pedicure. It is often part of the treatment and helps improve circulation and they aid in relaxation. When you put your feet up and they are treated to a soothing massage with the best foot care products, it will help you relax from head to toe! Not to mention the fact that your feet will look and feel great.


While most people associate reflexology with the feet, it can also be performed on the hands and even the face. This type of treatment involves focusing on specific points that target different parts of the body. For instance, if you are suffering from kidney problems, there is a certain area that can help relieve such problems. If your concerns are related to the liver, the practitioner will focus on a different part of the foot. Reflexology can be used in conjunction with other treatments to maximize the effects.

If you have any specific concerns, it is best to communicate them to the practitioner before they begin. This will help them offer you all the information and advice you need to opt for the right treatment to suit your needs.
