Foot reflexology - what exactly is it?
Foot reflexology stems from Far Eastern traditions, such as the historical Thai massage or Chinese Tuina. It is based on the assumption that every organ, muscle and bone in our body interacts with our feet via reflex pathways. According to this, the various reflex zones on the soles of the feet are assigned to specific areas of our body. Similar to acupressure, foot reflexology involves applying pressure to the appropriate reflex zones of the foot. The aim is to activate the body’s self-healing powers, but also to provide general well-being. Beside foot reflexology therapy, which is reserved for health professionals, foot reflexology is used in the wellness sector, which has mainly a relaxing effect.

Training: Foot Reflexology
A training offered by Kurland
In order to successfully perform foot reflexology, we offer both an introductory and an advanced course. In the introductory course you will learn basic massage techniques. After completing the course, you will be able to work preventively (prophylactically) and do good – but you are not allowed to give a treatment. You can immediately put into practice what you have learned.
We recommend booking the advanced course directly after the introductory course. This usually takes place the next day and is for all those who have already completed the introductory course or those who are interested and have the appropriate basic knowledge of foot reflexology and would like to acquire more in-depth knowledge. This enables you to provide the massage even more specifically and efficiently. The advanced course also enables you to work preventively (prophylactically) and do good – but you are not allowed to give a treatment.

Foot reflexology vs. foot reflexology therapy
Foot reflexology therapy is part of the standard offer in alternative practitioner practices and massage schools. Today, mainly alternative practitioners, physiotherapists and masseurs work with this form of therapy: These are massages in which pressure-sensitive zones are stimulated through mechanical or other stimulation, among other things for the purpose of diagnosing. In the spa and wellness area, a foot reflexology massage is used, which has mainly a relaxing effect.
Effects of foot treatment and for whom it is suitable
Foot reflexology can help with these complaints:
- Menopausal problems,
- menstruation problems,
- general fatigue,
- back pain,
- circulation problems,
- stomach and intestinal complaints,
- sleeping disorders,
Getting to know your own reflex zones
The reflex zones as referred to in foot reflexology “mirror” all organs and muscle groups on the surface of the skin and in the subcutaneous area. They are not identical with the well-known head zones of medicine. These zones exist on the back, foot, hand, ear, nose and skull. The reflex zones are either used for diagnostic purposes or therapeutically (reflex zone massage, acupuncture and acupressure).
Products for foot reflexology
To effectively perform foot treatment, we offer all the necessary consumables. Discover, for example, our wonderfully fragrant base oils and oil blends. Our Tip: Aloe Vera Oil is ideal for foot treatments, as tibias and feet are often neglected in daily care. That is why the skin in these regions is particularly dry. Aloe Vera moisturizes and soothes the skin – even in case of allergies, psoriasis or sunburn. For the care after the treatment we recommend our Goat Butter Foot Cream. Valuable ingredients such as goat butter, macadamia nut oil and Urea Pura nourish and moisturize. Allantoin and royal jelly protect the stressed skin on the feet for soft, beautifully nourished feet. The foot cream has a pleasant fresh scent and is, of course, free of parabens and paraffin oils.
