What is Foot Reflexology?
Reflexology is an Eastern medical science, using the body’s natural energy, or qi, to heal and increase longevity. Reflexology divides the body into a different zones and reflex areas that center and control the energy, and disperse it throughout the body.
On the feet alone, there are many reflex areas that correspond to other points on the body, for instance the liver, stomach, lungs, etc. Since the foot is a source of so many reflex areas, a reflexology-based foot massage has the ability to affect the entire body and promote overall healing.
Foot Reflexology for Expectant Mothers
Reflexology has long been used to induce labor in expectant mothers who are long overdue. In fact, we see many women at our Doraville location for this purpose!
Due to the sensitive nature of the feet in reflexology, pregnant women are not allowed to receive foot massages unless they are very late in the pregnancy and intend to induce labor. A comprehensive foot massage, administered by an experienced foot reflexologist has the potential to trigger contractions in the pregnant woman, so only expectant mothers ready to give birth may undergo this type of massage.
Treat Your Feet also offers pre-natal and pregnancy body massages for expectant mothers looking for relief from the uncomfortable and painful symptoms of pregnancy.
Foot Massage for Service Workers
If you work in food service, retail, nursing, construction, or any job where you’re on your feet during the day, it’s time to get a foot massage.
Extended periods of standing up day in and day out take a toll on your body. That’s why service workers feel the pain and tension in the lower and upper back, shoulders and neck, and not just the feet and legs. Without regular posture correction and body alignment, prolonged periods of standing up can produce long term health problems like chronic back pain, nerve damage, and inflammation diseases.
Professional waiters know the secret to staying energetic and efficient at their profession: regular foot massages.

Our Treat Your Feet Signature Foot Massages uses reflexology techniques to give you a great massage, and heal your body. Just like the name, reflexology uses the many, tiny reflex areas in your hands and feet to generate healing within throughout the rest of the body. Reflexology was widely used in ancient China, where it is a cornerstone of Chinese Traditional Medicine today.
Your Treat Your Feet Reflexology massage, will indeed relax you, but will aim to increase circulation throughout your body to ease any conditions or problems in your body. Since a reflexology foot massage only deals with your feet, you’re able to stay fully clothed the entire time!
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is an alternative treatment that uses specific touch technique of applying pressure, using your thumb and fingers, to reflex points of the feet and hands. Each foot has over 7,200 nerve endings (reflexes), 26 bones, 107 ligaments, and 19 muscles. A typical treatment includes applying pressure to specific reflex points that have relations to each and every organ and all parts of the body. This type of therapy creates a physiological change in the body by naturally improving your circulation, which reduces your body tension.
Reflexology may seem similar to a massage, but the approach is very different. A massage works on the specific muscles that the therapist touches, with the approach to relax the individual and heal injury or stress by reducing tension. Reflexology works by applying a very specific amount of pressure to a very specific spot on the hand or foot. There is great attention to detail in a reflexology foot massage, because of the many reflex areas and points on the feet and hands.
