Reflexology for Cancer Clients

Written by

Reflexology is an effective form of therapeutic foot treatment that aims to treat the client from a mind-body-spirit perspective. Reflexology cannot isolate a disease such as cancer and treat it symptomatically, nor does it work on a problem organ or body system. This treatment works with a focus of inducing a state of balance and harmony. As a holistic therapy, reflexology aims to treat the body, as a whole, and endeavours to get to the root cause of disease and treat the disease rather than the symptoms.

 

Therapeutic reflexology can be performed in the feet, hands, and ears, but this article will only examine its function with the feet. Corresponding areas on the feet are easier to locate than the eyes, ears, and hands as they cover a larger area and are more specific, making them easier to work on.

The aesthetic industry is opening itself to what is unique about contemporary times, detaching from outdated procedures and instead adjusting them to our current needs. Cultural, environmental, and dietary changes within our society have altered how our skin interacts with traditional treatments. In order to provide optimal results to our clients we must begin by acknowledging various skin conditions that are on the rise in our culture, understand their source and adjust our procedures accordingly.
