What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a deeply relaxing therapy that uses the feet to treat the whole body.

Whilst the art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, it wasn't until 1913 that Dr William Fitzgerald introduced this therapy to the West as 'zone therapy'. He noted that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs in the body within the same zone.

Reflexology uses the foot as a map (mirror) of the whole body.

In the 1930's Eunice Ingham further developed the zone theory into what is now known as reflexology. She observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body.

By massaging, manipulating and applying pressure to certain parts of the feet, known as reflex areas, other corresponding and connected areas of the body will feel the benefit, enabling the whole body to be 'retuned' and brought back into balance, thereby creating a feeling of well-being and optimum health.

It is both natural and non-invasive and is one of the most popular complementary therapies used in the NHS.

Reflexology is a complementary therapy, which works on the feet to help heal the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.
