A brief history of Reflexology
The art of reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt. There is documented evidence showing hand and foot work, without tools. Further evidence of the practice of foot and hand work has been found in ancient India and China. In 1913 Dr William Fitzgerald introduced ‘Zone Therapy’, believing that different zones on the feet and hands were linked to areas of the body and organs. In 1930 Eunice Ingham and her nephew, Dwight Byers, further developed Zone Therapy into what has later became known as Reflexology.
Reflexology is a well-established, non-intrusive complementary health therapy that aims to rebalance the body through the stimulation of specific points/reflexes on the feet, hands, face and scalp.
Reflexologists believe the feet, hands, face or scalp act as a miniature map of the body and when these reflexes are stimulated, a response can take place in the corresponding body parts. This can then trigger the body’s own healing mechanisms.
Our feet work hard for us carrying the entire weight of our bodies. With approximately 7000 nerve endings in our feet, by providing a reflexology treatment, it can energise the entire body, relax us and make our feet feel brand new. (Reflexology is generally considered safe to be used in conjunction with conventional medicines and is suitable for all age groups).
