Reflexology Caution!
Not everyone can receive reflexology

Most people absolutely love reflexology and receive it regularly.

However it's not safe for everyone and reflexology caution must be taken for some people.

Have a look below to see if it is safe for you, your friends and family because as you will learn, anyone can do reflexology.

Caution! reflexology is not safe in these circumstances

People that should not under any circumstance receive reflexology include anyone with the following

  •      Deep vein thrombosis
  •      Thromboplebitis
  •      Severe cellulite on the feet or legs
  •      Acute infection with high temperature
  •      Stroke- in the first two weeks

Professionals only

People with these conditions should not receive reflexology by anyone except an Accredited Reflexologist

  •  Pregnancy in the first trimester          
  •  Insulin dependent diabetics
  •  Cancer, especially lymphoma
  •  Epilepsy
  •  Anti-coagulating drugs i.e. warfarin and heparin
  •  People taking high dosage drugs or a variety of drugs
  •  Up to six months after heart surgery
  •  Hypersensitive people eg chronic fatique
  •  Contagious conditions eg plantar warts, tinea, AIDS, Hep B or C

Another reflexology caution step to consider is to always thoroughly check the foot, hand, face or ear.

Look for bruises, cuts, swelling, blisters, infections anything contagious or painful to touch.

Things like these mean you should definitely not do reflexology on that area of the body.

For example;

  • if someone has a bruised foot or ankle then they cannot receive foot reflexology
  • if someone has warts or blisters on their fingers then they cannot receive hand reflexology

Reflexology is only for healthy feet, hands, face and ears.

Reflexology helps restore balance, but does not cure diseases or illnesses and should be used to help maintain a healthy state.

Be careful of people that promise cure of illness through reflexology, reflexology is not medical treatment and will never ever replace medical treatment.

Water is extremely important to reflexology and it’s vital to have a big glass of water every single time you receive it.

Always have a large glass following reflexology and continue drinking a little more than usual for the next twenty four hours.

Water helps many body processes work more efficiently after reflexology.

One of its main functions is to help transport waste from the body through the blood system.

Reflexology slightly increases the dispelling of waste from your bodies cells, and you need extra water there to ensure it can be taken away.
