Reflexology is a holistic therapy which works on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands corresponding to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. A qualified reflexologist uses their hands to work these zones applying special pressure techniques, which stimulates the body to send messages to the brain and then onto the corresponding part of the body, which can enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself and promotes well-being in a safe and natural way.

The history of Reflexology dates back to ancient civilisations across the world. The earliest evidence comes from the tomb of an Egyptian physician, dated 2500BC. In the early 1900’s, influenced by Sir Charles Sherrington (a Nobel prize-winner for medicine), Dr William Fitzgerald discovered that by applying pressure on certain parts of the body it would have a numbing effect on another part of the body. This work was continued and refined into what we now know today as Reflexology.

Doctors accept that 75% of disease is caused by stress and one of the greatest benefits of reflexology is relaxation – making this therapy a safe and natural way to help our bodies feel well. Reflexology can help reduce everyday stresses and strains, aiding relaxation and improving circulation, thereby revitalising energy levels. It can also be used to aid the restoration and maintenance of the body’s natural equilibrium, encouraging feelings of well-being. Many other symptoms such as muscular and joint pain, anxiety, headaches, congestion, respiratory and digestive problems may be eased by reflexology.

Reflexology can be incorporated into a preventative healthcare lifestyle, which is becoming more and more important in modern life, as we continue to realise the damage caused to health by our environment.
