Reflexology Dublin - Techniques and Modalities

At Amatouch, I try to work within your comfort zone, too much pressure can be uncomfortable, so feel free to communicate with me to indicate your personal preference. This way I can ensure that the pressure I apply is within the desired levels.

After pinpointing the proper pressure points, I then gently massage the foot to warm it and relax it. Then I apply pressure to the specific points on the foot. Usually one foot is treated first and then the other but this may vary. Each session lasts 30 minutes to an hour. At first, the treatments may be done every week and then scheduled further apart.

Reflexology techniques may be used on feet, hands or ears, face most generally we refer to foot reflexology but facial reflexology is gaining more recognition. Each reflexologist will have their own method of working, so some details of the treatment may vary. However, the client should always feel safe and relaxed.

During the treatment, the client sits or lies in a comfortable position. The principle is that the whole body is mapped on the feet. The reflexologist may design a map of the feet while the person describes his or her symptoms. The map shows which pressure points on the foot are related to the organs where the client reaction was evident.

Reflexologists use pressure, stretch, and movement to work the patient's feet methodically. The whole of each foot should be worked in most circumstances.

The sensitive hands of a trained reflexologist can detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet of a patient, and, by stimulating and working these points, the reflexologist can release blockages, reinstate the free flow of energy around the body, and restore balance and function to the required organs or systems of the body.

The main reflexology techniques used are:

  • Thumbwalking - the therapeutic movement is on the downward press with the thumb bent, putting emphasis on pressing down on the skin. Only one hand is used, the other holds and support the foot worked on. Then slide forward as the thumb straighten, this technique is also called the Caterpillar walking.
  • Fingerwalking - This technique involves fingerwalking with the index finger, it is the same as thumbwalking but using one or more fingers.
  • Rotating - The thumb or finger gently rotates on the spot. This technique is used to work on a specific point.
  • Pinpointing - With the hand in mid-hair, the thumb and fingers move together and apart like a pincer.
