How to do a reflexology foot wrap

/, Students, Videos/How to do a reflexology foot wrap

I never really realized that I had learned such a cool way to wrap the foot until I was teaching in a spa program and asked the students so show me what they had learned. I felt what I had picked up along the way was much better so I shared it with them and they thought so too.

If you have ever been to Thailand and had a Thai-Reflexology session you will be quite familiar with this method. I receive some training in the Thai Wat Po style of reflexology when I was in Thailand and this a great gem that I would like to share with you from my training. I use this during, and after every session.

Watch the video below to learn how to wrap the foot.

To do the reflexology foot wrap …

  1. Put the towel at 45degree angle to the leg.
  2. Bring up the closest corner so that the towel covers over the toes
  3. Grab the other corner, fold it over crossing the first fold and then tuck in around the heel.
  4. Wrap the other end around the leg.
  5. Tuck in the top and then roll it over securing the top making a complete boot.

wrapping the foot like this has many uses

  • If it’s cold and you want to keep one foot warm while you work  on the other.
  • Great way to finish a session and take off excess oil so that your client does not slip in their shoes.
  • If you make a tight enough towel wrap you can actually use them as boots if the client may have to go use the washroom for example.

I hope you found this useful as it is one of my favorite tricks / techniques I have learned in the wonderful world of Reflexology.

Have a great Reflexology Day!
Yours warmly,

Note: The towels that I use in this video are from Japan and are longer and narrower than the towels in North America which still work but I prefer the Japanese size.

    What are the dimensions of the Japanese towel? I could certainly make some towels to that size.
    Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed your video .

      The Japanese towel size is 70cmX33cm (28.5″X14.5″) which is so perfect because it gives you the length to wrap the foot where as a common size for a spa like towel here is 22″X14″ (35.5cmX56cm) which I have used and it works but it is hard to cover a larger foot. I have found larger towels here which measure 28.5″X14.5″ and they work great. I live in Vancouver, Canada and there is a Japanese dollar store that carries them but I use them as a reason to visit Japan. he he

    Hi Adam,
    I love your video on wrapping the foot. It’s exactly the same way that I’ve been wrapping the feet for years now too.

    Could you please tell me which Japanese dollar store in Vancouver you are getting your towels from? I’d like to pick some up.

    Thanking you in advance for any courtesies.

      Thanks for watching … I’m glad I’m not the only one wrapping feet like this!
      I really do get mine from Japan but I know that Daiso in The Aberdeen Centre, 4151 Hazelbridge Way, Richmond, BC (SW Corner of Hazelbridge Way & Cambie Rd.) has them. You might also want to try Yoko Yaya 123, 1199 International Village (Tinseltown), 88 W Pender Street, Vancouver BC. Happy towel hunting.
