Welcome to our community of massage, bodywork and reflexology practitioners. Therapists, if it's been more than two weeks, it's time for your massage.
Dragonflies (and All!),
Have you ever tried hoof cream? (doesn't that sound UNcomplimentary? I tell my clients its only for prize-winning thoroughbreds! ha)
I am not a Reflexologist, but really endeavor to work the feet well in my massage. I find I have a really good balance between slip & control with this.
Another product I like to use is fro Got2Be products. Its a minty & very thick/emolient foot cream. Called something like Sole ___. Its a hioliday & I am not at work & at a loss for the 'name'.
In my other postings about cupping massage, the links/articles there talk about Reflexologists using the microcupping sets to get great results in their R therapies. Any thoughts?

I'll have to try them out Jenn, I've seen them on the shelves at Whole Foods and such but I don't think I've tried them yet for Reflexology.

I know that it works though! My nails grow like crazy when I do a lot of treatments with it! And because they have tons of different scents you can create all kinds of fun protocols!!!

I'm not a certified reflexologist, but I have taken a class on it, and I read a few books on the subject. No expert by any means, but I like to work on feet, I think they hold a lot of tension! Our spa offers it, so I give my own mixed version of reflexology, swedish massage and stretching. I usually start by following the meridians down the feet without lotion, then I use a little lotion to add in some effleurage and then joint movements and stretching. You can buy samples of eminence on Ebay pretty cheap, and since you don't need a lot of glide you can try it a few times and see what you think! There a TON of different varieties so check out their website first and see what you want lol!
