In this way, with these techniques we can alleviate pain, reduce stress and anxiety, treat sleep disturbances, memory problems, relieve depressed or low mood states, stroke, fears or phobias, among the most prominent. It is worth noting the efficacy of these techniques for patients with pain, chronic or acute, especially for cases of Fibromyalgia, since it is a great complementary therapy to relieve their symptoms and improve their welfare state.

Likewise, Reflexology professionals monitor the status and evolution of the patient in each of the sessions as a clinical history. It includes data on the health of patients (pathologies, surgeries, medical treatments, etc.), as well as data on patients’ habits in terms of food, exercise and sleep, among others. During the sessions, which last 60 minutes, although the first visit can be prolonged up to 90 minutes, the patient remains lying down, while the techniques are applied to his feet. During this time, the patient will be able to experience the sensations that their own feet offer and to realize their state of health, according to the information found in them.

The frequency of these visits varies depending on the severity of the pathologies presented by the patient, although frequent visits at the beginning are recommended, after seeing the evolution and improvement of the symptoms, prolonging the visits to a state of control. These visits do not imply any type of extra medication, but new guidelines on diet, the use of natural products and changes in habits among others can be recommended. It is very important that patients interested in Reflexology place their trust in the best trained professionals in the field and by methods that have been validated, such as the case of the Ingham Method (IIR).
