Some say that the best part of getting a pedicure is the foot massage.

Yet it pales in comparison to a reflexology session, where a reflexologist applies specific techniques to the feet, hands, face and ears to optimize your health and well-being.

Reflexology boasts an array of health benefits. “Reflexology is beneficial for so many conditions,” says Laura Norman, founder of Laura Norman Holistic Reflexology and a leading international expert on reflexology, practicing in Delray Beach and New York City. 

“Due to the concentration of thousands of nerves in the feet, hands, face and ears, reflexology is an effective way to induce relaxation in one’s body, mind and spirit. When you’re relaxed, your body can find its natural balance. Circulation improves, the immune system gets stronger and aches and pains throughout the body melt away.”

Reflexologists also address concerns unique to women like PMS, fertility, pregnancy and menopause. “People tell me they sleep better since their mind is at peace,” says Norman. “They wake up restored, refreshed and full of energy, which sharpens their focus and helps them get more done in a day.”  

What to Expect

During your visit, your reflexologist will ask about your health history and goals to understand how they can best support you. Fully dressed, you’ll remove your shoes and socks and lie on a table in a dimly lit room. “The ambiance is cozy and the reflexology is deeply soothing,” says Norman. “People often fall asleep while we work on them.”

Your reflexologist will apply moderate pressure to reflex areas on your feet, hands, face and ears, which correspond to different parts of your body. The frequency of your visits depends on what issues you’re addressing. “Results are cumulative. The more regularly you go, the better the impact,” says Norman. “Consistency brings optimum results.”

Reflexology is safe and effective. “If you have any serious medical conditions, check with your physician before your session,” says Norman. Reflexology is complementary to traditional medical care and also helpful for preventative care. Rather than treating specific illnesses, reflexologists supercharge your body’s natural healing abilities.

Bottom line, reflexology’s benefits are immense. “It helps my clients and myself relax so much,” says Norman. “You’ll feel wonderful all over and your whole being will thank you.”
