What reflexologists do


A reflexologist uses hands only to apply pressure to the feet. For each person the application and the effect of the therapy are unique. Sensitive, trained hands may detect imbalances in the feet, and by working on these points, the reflexologist can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body, mind and spirit. Tensions are eased, and circulation and elimination may be improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself.


How reflexology can help


  • improve general health - detoxify and cleanse the body
  • fight infection - induce a deep sense of relaxation
  • speed up healing - bring the body back to balance
  • strengthen immune system - support the body's own natural healing ability
  • decrease stress and enhance sleep - cleanse and renew internal energy system
  • increase self-awareness - adjust emotional imbalance
  • enhance meditation




Our Chapter


The Alberta Chapter was formed in January 2009 as a component of the Reflexology Association of Canada (RAC). The Alberta Chapter operates under the bylaws of RAC with its own Board of Directors. We are a non-profit organization that provides membership to reflexology therapists in Alberta. Our chapter grew to 40 members in its first year and continues to expand.

Our Mission "The Alberta Chapter of Reflexology of Canada will promote professionalism, recognition and visibility for reflexology by sharing skills, developing knowledge, training, and networking within Alberta".

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation, and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.

The theory is that following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is in a state of "imbalance", and that vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology may be used to restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium to encourage the body's own healing capabilities.
