Reflexology is a holistic, complementary therapy that treats the "whole" person; mind, body and spirit, in order to help with overall well-being. The earliest indication of working on the feet and hands to promote good health was discovered in Egypt in 2500BC on the walls of the tomb of Physician Ankmahor. These techniques continued to be seen in use through ancient illustrations and texts from early China, Japan, India and Russia. Today, modern Reflexology still uses some of these ancient techniques along with methods developed through research that began in the 19th Century.
Reflexology basis its theory on the feet and hands being a reflection of the body. A professional and well trained Reflexologist can work indirectly with each and every part of the body using a variety of techniques, including the application of pressure, on reflexes that represent the major organs and glands. This can help to support clients through ill health by offering increased relaxation, release of tension, enhanced sleep, improvement in mood and an overall increase in well-being. It enables us to encourage deep relaxation aiming to restore a state of balance.
Please remember Reflexology is not a replacement for medical treatment.
