Understanding The Process of Reflexology: How Does It Work?
First things first, in order to effectively prepare for your first reflexology experience,it’s recommended to understand its process. You can inquire at your local spa, talk to an expert practitioner, talk to a friend, or someone you know who may be regularly getting one. This gives you enough time to get settled and help manage your expectations.
As a spa that caters to overall well-being through our various massage services, to give you a brief background on our end, reflexology is a kind of massage that applies various amounts of pressure on the hands, feet, and ears. The ones who practices this are called reflexologists and they base this on a theory that the aforementioned body parts are all tied to a corresponding organ.

Discussion with your reflexologist
It is highly encouraged to raise any questions or concerns to your reflexologist prior to and during your session.
