Become a Expert Reflexologist
What Makes a Good Reflexologist?
Reflexology is a fascinating field in massage therapy. It makes use of pressure points in the hands and feet to relieve tension throughout the rest of the body. Each pressure point, or “reflex”, corresponds to a different area of the body, so knowing where each point is can really benefit you in the long run.
The true beauty of these therapeutic massage methods is that they can make a lasting difference in a person’s life. As a reflexologist, you would be aiding people in their healing process, both physically and mentally. But, before you can pursue this career path, you need to understand what it takes to be a good reflexologist.
The How-to of Reflexology
To learn the refined techniques behind this ancient practice, it is worth enrolling in a course on the subject. After all, knowledge is power, and a good massage therapist is one who is an expert. Face to Face Beauty & Make-Up Design School offers a range of beauty therapy courses, and we have the same exciting deals at our Head and West Rand offices, so you are spoiled for choice.
When it comes to reflexology treatments, many people think that they can book a single session and walk out feeling like a million bucks. However, every person is different, which means that each individual may require a different number of sessions. Most people would need more than one session as the act of healing is often a process. As such, regular treatments would enhance the effects of reflexology. This is why it’s important to be transparent in your communication with your client and advise them of the increased effects that multiple sessions can achieve.
In terms of communication, you should also make your clients aware of the potential side effects involved. For example, the sudden release of tension may induce a headache and the body may feel colder due to the release of toxins.
