The Possibilities of Reflexology



Consider the possibilities of reflexology:

  • Connecting with others using reflexology as you help them be well;
  • Taking control of your own well-being using reflexology;
  • Helping your family members or friends through difficult times of health problems with reflexology;
  • Developing a career of hands-on work with others in the field of reflexology.

Fond family memories, stories of personal resilience and friends helping friends result from reflexology work. Being bribed with lox and bagels to work on her father’s feet on Sunday mornings was among fondest memories of one radio commentator. One woman was called “Foot” instead of “Aunt” by her young niece who delighted in her reflexology work. From friends helping friends in the hospital to individuals seeking to help themselves, reflexology offers help at hand.


Some 40 years had passed since his mother had worked on his feet when he went to bed every night, “but my client had not forgotten”, says Kevin Kunz. “My reflexology work on his feet would put him to sleep in seconds with a smile on his face. He slept so soundly that only his own snoring would interrupt his slumber.”
