Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient therapy using pressure point technique on the feet (or sometimes the hands) to create balance and harmony throughout the entire body and mind

Specific points on the feet and hands known as 'reflex ' points relate to different areas of the body.

When the reflex points are stimulated with finger and thumb pressure it is thought the associated areas may be re-balanced, via nerve endings and energy path ways.

Reflexology takes its roots from ancient civilisations; the Egyptians, North American Indians and the Chinese all claim to have used foot manipulation to promote good health.

More recently the American doctor, William FitzGerald developed Zone Therapy. Around 1872 he discovered that by applying pressure to one area of the body an anaesthetic effect could be created in another.
Eunice Ingham (1879-1974) used FitzGerald's methods and finally documented a map of reflex points found on the feet which could be used therapeutically.
