Why do feet make people squirm?

Since embarking on my reflexology journey last year, one thing that has struck me is how squeamish people are about feet. Comments such as 'I don't know how you touch other people's feet' or 'I want to book in but I'm embarrassed about my feet' are ones that I'm used to hearing. It seems that the majority of people are a bit grossed out by feet - not just other people's, but their own too.

I however find them fascinating. They have proved to me over the last year that they really do tell stories, and have the ability to help our bodies and minds to heal and return to a state of balance. I have seen first hand the benefits that regular reflexology sessions can have on people dealing with anxiety, insomnia, stress, digestive issues and infertility. One lady who came to see me had sensitivity in her adrenal glands, the ones that produce adrenaline and cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body. When I asked her at the end of the treatment if she'd found herself in any stressful or panic-inducing situations recently, she told me that the day before her dog had managed to escape from her grasp which left her chasing him across a busy road shouting and screaming in a state of hysteria. Thankfully her dog was returned to her safe and well, but I found it so interesting that this had come to light through a blockage in the corresponding part of her foot. I paid special attention to this reflex in order to break down the blockage so that her body could return to a state of balance, improving her sense of overall wellbeing.

So please don't feel the need to apologise for your feet. I am not looking at whether you've had a pedicure or if you any have dry skin - my interests lie in helping you to achieve your emotional and physical goals and creating a harmonious body and mind.
