A little about Reflexology

What is Reflexology
Reflexology is a gentle, non-evasive holistic complimentary therapy that aims to support the 'whole' person to promote wellbeing. Reflexology does not aim to diagnose, prescribe or cure.
Reflexology is based on the concept that the feet (and hands) mirror body and that by applying direct pressure to specific points (reflexes) on the feet and hands, the body can be restored to homeostasis (a stable physiological state).

The Benefits of Reflexology:
  • Deep Relaxation
  • Improved Sleep
  • Relief from Stress,Anxiety and Depression
  • Improved Mood
  • A Sense of Wellbeing
    A sense of wellbeing is much more than an absence of dis-ease in the body, it includes a balanced state of mind which can leave you feeling more at ease and happier within yourself and with life in general.

A brief History of Reflexology
Though there is widespread belief that ‘healing the body’ through ‘working the feet’ (Reflexology)originated in China, the earliest documented proof of Reflexology, a pictograph dated 2500 – 2330bc, is found in the Egyptian Tomb of Ankmahor an Egyptian Physician. Reflexology is also known to have been used (and still is) by the North American Indians and in the practice of Ayurvedic Medicine, which was developed in India and is considered the oldest recorded form of healing dating back approximately 5000 years. It is known that a form of reflexology was practiced in Europe as far back as the 14th century.

Inquiring Medical Minds of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, intrigued by the concept of ‘Reflex Therapy’, instigated a resurgence in the study of Reflexology culminating with Eunice Ingham (1879-1974), known as the Mother of Modern Reflexology, charting a map of the entire body on the feet. Research of the benefits of Reflexology continues to this day.
