Here at Footsteps in Eden Reflexology, this is one of the most frequently asked questions from clients. You may have asked it yourself. Rather than offer the “one size fits all” answer, here are some reasons for considering the cumulative effect of reflexology for your personal health and wellness goals.
Health challenges are often a part of life for months and even years — sometimes many years. When clients choose weekly or bi-weekly sessions, and make these a priority over a span of months and in some cases years, they often experience amazing results. While some sessions may bring nearly indiscernible baby steps other times the client is amazed at the dramatic changes. By allowing their whole being to enter that deep state of relaxation on a regular basis they encourage their whole body toward greater health and wellness for a lifetime.
Sometimes new clients “try” a few sessions over 6 or 8 weeks time expecting to see significant results for their long-term challenges. They become disappointed and choose to stop with reflexology. From experiences in my practice, I know that those with the most awesome stories to share are those who have chosen to continue regular sessions for months and longer, believing that positive changes are occurring within their body. Ultimately, they are the ones most often rewarded with enhanced health and wellness.
Life is complicated and lives are stressed. Stress leads to 75-95% of all health challenges. Reflexology’s most significant benefit is stress reduction and relaxation. One of the very best things you may do to help relieve your stress is to take the time regularly and consistently to reap the potential benefits of reflexology.
New energy patterns are introduced into the body through reflexology. These are helping to bring all systems of the body into greater balance and helping to strengthen the immune system. Consistent regular sessions help to maintain this enhanced state of health.
What does “consistent regular sessions” mean? The individual who is in good health and desiring to use reflexology as a part of a plan to maintain their wellness, may find that every other week or even once a month is quite beneficial. For the person hoping to receive help for current or chronic health challenges and/or extreme stress, weekly appointments may be an excellent investment toward that goal. As improvement is seen, the decision may be made to space the sessions further apart. I have some clients who consider regular reflexology to be their “health plan.” This may be monthly, bi-weekly, or even weekly. Some report such great benefits that their body knows when it has missed even one weekly session. At Footsteps in Eden Reflexology, we will consider your wellness goals along with your budget of time and resources to design a plan specifically for you.
