Different people experience different sensations during a reflexology session, but the majority agree that they feel an overall sense of relaxation. You may experience a feeling of lightness or tingling within your body, and some people say they feel a shift in energy within the organs or systems on which the reflexologist is focusing.

You may find that your hands or feet lightly perspire, or that they feel slightly chilled. You may also feel thirsty. Your muscles are likely to feel loose and relaxed and you may want to drift off to sleep. All of these reactions are common.
