Reflexology and Bowel Movements

After a reflexology treatment, there may be some side effects that are not the most pleasant but needed to start the process of healing.

A reflexology session helps improve your bodily functions and may result in flatulence or burping. A backed up or clogged colon will cause many stresses on the body that may not be as easy to relate the problems to each other. Some of these symptoms are:

  • feeling sluggish / no energy
  • nausea / vomiting
  • abdominal swelling
  • loss of appetite/weight loss
  • headaches / migraines
  • back pain

Specific parts of the plantar or “bottom” of the feet are worked when a client comes with a issue like constipation. This should be relieved in a short amount of sessions when done close together. This is likely to be set up so there are 3 sessions in a week to 10 day time frame. Many people have a bowel movement or movements after their first session.

Along with reflexology, your client may want to do a flush of the colon or a gall bladder cleanse. This actually cleans your liver, stomach,small / large intestines,kidneys, urinary tract,basically your whole digestive system. A great way to do an internal clean that is not too time consuming, inexpensive and easy to accomplish. You will finish this feeling less bloated, easier bowel movements and be more regular.
