Spinal Reflexology

Spinal Reflexology is a powerful form of Reflexology based on stimulating the spinal reflexes on the feet. Individual vertebrae are stimulated with the aim of identifying nerve roots that are out of balance.

The spinal cord is a cable that descends from the brain to the lumbrosacral area of the spine. Through 31 pairs of spinal nerves, the spinal cord is connected to the rest of the body through the nervous system and relays information to and from the brain. Nerve roots exit the vertebrae to reach specific organs and muscles. If, for some reason, the nerve roots are compressed this can interfere with neural pathways and cause organs not to function properly. The aim of Spinal Reflexology is to identify organs which are not functioning correctly.

Spinal Reflexology can help in a number of ways:

  • Promote healing by working on the spinal nerve roots and helping to open up neural pathways
  • Increases blood flow to reduce swelling and chronic inflammation. On the most basic level, Reflexology increases the circulation
  • Help with natural pain relief with regular treatments
  • Access spinal nerve roots to directly treat the cause of the problem or referred pain


Spinal Reflexology can be a standalone treatment or can be incorporated in to a standard Reflexology where the whole body is treated but certain areas are targeted using Spinal Reflexology. I am also happy to combine Reflexology with massage.
