Possible side effects
Who shouldn’t do Reflexology
Reflexology generally does not pose any contraindications.
However it is important to know that sometimes after a treatment you can feel light headed or ‘spaced out’, sore in the areas treated, have an emotional or even physical response such as feeling nauseas or need to urinate more.
If you are undergoing any medical treatment for the following conditions it is important that you speak to your doctor beforehand. We would prefer to ensure that you are in safe hands so appreciate that you advise us of your current health status to allow us to tailor your treatment.
- Skin conditions
- Thyroid issues
- If you have a pace maker
- Fungal infections
- Pregnancy in the 1st trimester
- Suffer from clotting
- Have varicose veins
Reflexology vs Massage
What treatment is best for you?
When you contact Studio Australia Barcelona for a treatment we will ask you what your symptoms are, how you are feeling and what benefits or relief you would like to achieve from your treatment.
Reflexology is a holistic non-invasive therapy and we would recommend this practice to you if you need to support and nourish your vital organs, increase your blood flow to aid detox and the lymphatic system, reduce stress by supporting your cardiovascular system and increasing oxygen to your cells.
It is recommended to people who are undergoing cancer treatment to ease nausea, depression, anxiety and pain.
Reflexology focuses on connecting to the overall body through reflex zones and pressure points on the feet or hands.Contact us for a complimentary consultation
A foot massage treatment will give you the immediate sensation of wellbeing, relaxation and stress relief similar to a Reflexology treatment but it may not necessarily promote the overall healing benefits to the body.
We recommend foot massage to people who are looking for a therapeutic treatment to release the muscles of the feet and calves, relieve postural stress and give your body physical and emotional support. A hour of time out to pamper yourself in your busy life.

Studio Australia Barcelona is a wonderful Pilates and wellness space. After developing a disc injury years ago they have helped me get fit again without hurting my back and improving it considerably. They take very special care to adapt all the routines to my particular ailments and offer additional support through their team of practitioners. I have rarely seen the level of expertise I have found at Studio Australia Barcelona. And they do it all in a beautiful and peaceful studio. No doubt my weekly Pilates class is one of my favourite times of the week!
I had a very serious accident a couple of years ago. I came to Studio Australia with my legs in full braces and on crutches, not sure if I'd walk again. Needless to say the wonderful team at Studio Australia worked tirelessly to get my strength back (both physically and mentally) through Pilates and physical therapy. I am back on my feet and walking up to 10km a day. Not only are they damn good at what they do, but they are fun, caring, and just good people.
Natalia and Mandy have created an incredible space dedicated to wellness right in the center of Gràcia. Their nurturing, intuitive style helps clients from all walks of life feel safe and empowered. At Studio Australia Barcelona all the wonderful staff will help you uncover newfound strength in your body, build self-esteem, and make your everyday life much better!
My Reiki and Pilates sessions with Natalia where key in helping me cope and beat my breast cancer. I was new to the studio and the moment I walked in, I instinctively just knew that “they had my back” and would help me through it and they did!
It is difficult to explain in a few lines the profound and inexpressible gratitude that having Reiki has given me...Now that I have overcome cancer and the treatments, I can affirm with certainty that each Reiki session with Natalia, relieved my immense fatigue, reconnecting with me with my energy and enabled me to let go of the fear that oppressed me.

After many years in a cycle of injury and recover I have finally found the long-term, smart solution to my healthcare needs. Studio Australia Barcelona will change your body and relax your mind permanently. A highly personalised service by professionals who are not just an expert, but really care about what they do, this is the ultimate one-stop-shop for all your health needs.
It is the best place to do Pilates in Barcelona. The quality is exceptional and they adjust the sessions and programs that one needs - in the long term and short, day to day. When you arrive you are asking yourself how you are and what you need to do. They take care of you. And the body shows it!
I suffer from hip injuries that caused me on going issues. Mandy was so helpful in organising instant relief through massage and then I spent time with Natalia working on a Pilates program that would strengthen my body to reduce the impact of our travels on my injuries. The team are all so lovely and professional. It was like spending time with friends than working out. Thanks Studio Australia Barcelona.
Studio Australia is like an oasis where Natalia and Mandy take care of your body and soul.
A Studio concept that changes you!! From the Pilates method, massages or Reiki, a balanced package, in an environment and space that help to achieve that sought after balance. It has become a must!!
