Welcome to the online presence of Christo Scheepers Therapeutic Reflexologist
The home of Non-Invasive Foot Therapy where your feet are our therapeutic domain
Touching Lives through Touching Feet since 2003
What is Therapeutic Reflexology?
Reflexology is one of the most popular Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) modalities offering you non-invasive therapy mainly through your feet (and other body parts like hands and ears).
Specific reflexes (nerve endings) on the feet are stimulated with certain pressure techniques which induce deep relaxation and an involuntary response in body organs and glands connected by electromagnetic pathways to these reflexes. That increases overall wellness as it helps your body to get back into balance and heal itself while ridding the body of toxins accumulating in the body through modern-day lifestyles.
South African Legislation
In South Africa Therapeutic Reflexology is a profession registered and professionally regulated by the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa (AHPCSA) in terms of the Allied Health Professions Act, 1982 (Act 63 of 1982), making it illegal to practice reflexology without being registered with this statutory council. This is important to protect the public and when you consider offering your feet or body to anyone to work on, you should enquire from that therapist whether he or she is professionally qualified and legally registered with the AHPCSA in order to practice.

"The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and work of art"
(Leonardo da Vinci)
The Human Foot is Fascinating
The human foot is such a masterpiece that it carries the entire weight of the body, assists with balance and is used for movement (on average about 9000 steps per day), yet so many people neglect and feel embarrassed about their feet.
There is no need to feel embarrassed about your feet in the world of therapeutic reflexology.
A Therapeutic Reflexologist works with all kinds of feet in all shapes, sizes and conditions and what you may feel embarrassed about, may in actual fact give valuable information to the therapeutic reflexologist about your overall wellbeing.
The Human Foot Consists of:
8 Main Nerves
125 000 Sweat Glands
Numerous Blood Vessels
200 000+ Nerve Endings
Sole with 3 parts (ball, arch, heel)
2 Parts (dorsal and plantar aspect)
3 Sections (forefoot, midfoot, hindfoot)
26 Bones (28 if counting the sesamoid bones)
What patients have to say
Christo has fantastic, firm grips and good strong pressure! Very, very enjoyable … Well done!
I have been privileged to have had Christo do regular sessions with me after my cancer treatment; he is so professional in the manner he treats his patients with respect.
Christo, thank you for my foot treatment today. When I arrived home and I took off my shoes and smelled the sweet smell of the creams you used on my feet, then I thought, you are actually doing a humbling and special work because every day you anoint and heal many people’s feet like in the days of Moses and Jesus when they washed and anointed the visitors’ feet. Just think how many broken people, especially women, you have touched with healing through your profession!
Christo is friendly and very informative. The therapeutic reflexology sessions were a relaxing experience and it feels as if it is stimulating digestion. Not sure what you did, but I felt so good and relaxed after the session. I usually wake up at least twice during the night, but after the reflexology session, I slept right through the night. I cannot believe this.
As a teenage girl of 16, I think Christo is very good. He is friendly and he knows what he is doing. The reflexology sessions were very good and I learnt things about my body that I did not know.
Thank you for your integrity, Christo, when you referred me rather than just continuing with more treatment sessions made me realise just what type of a professional you are because you could easily just continue with treatment, but when you had the discussion with me and referred me to another type of healthcare professional, you made a real impression!
Christo is absolutely amazing as a therapeutic reflexologist; he may touch my feet anytime.
