What are the most common reactions?

Most common reactions are related to the body cleansing itself of toxins, so they manifest in the elimination systems of the body - the kidneys, bowels, skin and lungs. The following reactions are not usual:

Increased urination as the kidneys are stimulated to produce more urine, which may be darker and stronger smelling due to the toxic content.

Flatulence and more frequent bowel movements.

Aggravated skin conditions, particularly in conditions which have been suppressed, such as increased perspiration and pimples.

Improved skin tone and tissue texture due to improved circulation.

Increased secretions of the mucous membranes in the nose, mouth and bronchioles.

Disrupted sleep patterns - either deeper or more disturbed sleep.

Dizziness or nausea.

A temporary outbreak of a disease which has been suppressed.

Increased discharge from the vagina.




Depression, overwhelming desire to weep.

Whatever the reactions, they are a necessary part of the healing process and will pass. Drinking water - preferably warm, boiled water with the juice of an organic lemon or a spoon of cider vinegar - in place of other liquids will assist in flushing toxins from the system rapidly.

The length of the reflexology treatment and number of sessions will vary according to the patient and the condition. The course should be 8-12 treatments once or twice a week. For optimum results, two sessions a week are recommended until there is an improvement, and then gradually reduce the frequency. A one-off treatment will not correct problems which have been developing over several years.
