Working Both Feet
There are two occasions when reflexologists work back and forth between the feet. The first is this relaxation sequence and the second is during the cool down. Generally they work the entire right foot and then the entire left foot. Relaxing both feet before beginning the session allows the body, mind, and spirit to become totally involved. In this way, you are giving the message to the receiver that it is time to let go of the control and relax.
Once the feet are both relaxed, return your attention to the right foot. Most of the body's processes work from right to left; therefore, you will follow the way the body works. Energetically, the right side is the past and the left is the present. Working from right to left allows the receiver to let go of the past to heal the present.
Once the treatment portion is complete and the cool-down phase begins, it is fine to move back and forth again. Have fun and remember there is no wrong way, only better ways.
