What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a hands-on therapy that addresses all body systems, not just the feet and legs. It works by stimulating the reflex points on the feet, hands and ears that correspond to various major organs and systems in the body. Applying pressure to the body's reflex points releases congestion and promotes general wellbeing, according to reflexologists.

How Many Reflexologists are Practising in Perth?

Australia currently has over 3,000 reflexologists, but Perth and the rest of Western Australia account for only 1% of this number due to the small population of the region. Reflexologists typically work in massage clinics, fitness centres or spas. While some work with other natural health practitioners, others run their own private practices.

How Many People in Perth Use Reflexology?

The use of reflexology is very common in Australia, with an estimated 228,400 Australian adults receiving regular treatments. However, in a 2007 survey (Xue et al.), only 3.8% of residents in Western Australia, including Perth, had used the modality. Perhaps this has to do with the state's small population.
