How does a reflexologist have you sit when working on your feet?

Asked by guywithanaccountnow (313points) May 3rd, 2012

Any way other than with your legs straight out in front of you ever? And would part of their work on your feet involve touching parts of your legs too?
These questions may seem kind of random, but they’re important.

Since you are paying for the service and don’t like the set-up, ask for another arrangement.

There seem to be very few choices; you either lie on a table or you sit in a lounge chair with your feet on a stool or foot rest.

Call the person and ask him/her over the phone or read his website.


The treatment seems to stop at the ankle and well below the end of the jeans.

I had several reflexology sessions when a friend of mine was training to be a reflexologist (and aromatherapist) and she used me as her “guinea-pig”. Usually I would be lying or sitting on a full-length massage table and she stood at the end to work on my feet. And it’s feet only, there’s no touch above the ankles and very little on the top of the foot.

Interesting point; in one session she touched a certain pressure point and it made me squeal and almost jump off the bench. She looked at me quizzically and asked if I had bladder problems. I didn’t, but I was desperate for the loo and trying to hold on until she finished.

Funny, I had a treatment today. At a chinese shop. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. You lay in a massage chair (clothed) with your legs straight out in front. They first soak them in hot tea, while they do your head and such, then they do your legs. It’s wonderful. They seem to know how hard to push so you don’t hurt or jump.
