Cautions and contra-indications

Reflexology is a modality that is safe for most people, however treatment should be avoided or deferred in case a person is affected by:

  • Foot fractures or injuries

  • Unhealed wounds on the foot

  • Active gout in the foot

  • Infectious foot conditions

  • Active systemic infection/fever

  • Untreated or suspected thrombosis or embolism

  • Or  if they are in the first trimester of pregnancy*

 

*Reflexology can be provided safely by a practitioner trained in maternity and pregnancy reflexology, but I personally treat from the beginning of the 2nd trimester onwards.

Clients who are under the care of a medical professional or primary care provider for a diagnosed condition are generally encouraged to discuss their wish to have reflexology with them prior to commencing treatment.
