Reflexology is one of the most in-demand holistic treatments in the industry, as more and more stressed out and run down clients look for something that’s relaxing, enhances their wellbeing, and promotes healing of the body.
What is reflexology?
Reflexology dates back thousands of years and has its roots in China and Ancient Egypt. It’s believed that energy channels run throughout the body, and if any of these channels become blocked, health problems can occur. Over time, practitioners of reflexology developed a map of pressure points in the hands and feet which are thought to be connected to different parts of the body.
What can reflexology help with?
Reflexology doesn’t claim to be able to cure health conditions, but there is research that says it can help with stress, anxiety, headaches, sinus problems, neck and back pain, digestive problems, PMS, insomnia, and more.
The benefits of bringing reflexology into your business
You can offer it in a salon or mobile
Whether you’re based in a salon or you’re a self-employed mobile therapist, you will be able to offer reflexology. All you need is a couch, towels, a blanket, products to cleanse your client’s feet, and the balm or oil you perform the treatment with.
Reflexology is a niche and can make you stand out from your competitors
While reflexology is a popular treatment, not every salon offers it so there’s scope for you to really target and attract particular client groups, for example, pregnant clients.
It’s ideal for encouraging repeat customers
For best results, clients usually need a course of reflexology treatments regardless of what the treatment is for, which means repeat bookings for you. The treatment is also so relaxing and often enhances wellbeing so much that clients want to keep coming in for maintenance treatments, even if their original symptoms have improved.
It’s personally and financially rewarding
It will be hugely rewarding for you as a therapist to see that you’re enhancing your client’s wellbeing, and you’ll also reap the financial rewards of being able to offer a more specialist treatment.
