What is Reflexology?
The healing art of Reflexology was first practised in ancient Egypt, China, India and Japan. It was introduced to the Western World in 1923 by an American ear, nose and throat surgeon, Dr William Fitzgerald. He discovered that there are ten channels of energy running from the head to the fingertips and toes. The Reflexology chart was later revised by Mrs Eunice Ingham in the 1930s.
Reflexology is a natural, holistic therapy, based on the principle that reflex points in the hands and feet correspond with all areas of the body. Following stress, illness, injury or disease the body is in a state of “imbalance” and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning properly. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium and encourage healing. A specialised form of massage is used, applying pressure to various reflex points, easing blockages and restoring the free flow of energy to the whole body.
Tensions are eased and circulation and elimination are improved. Reflexology has the ability to unite body, mind and spirit in a positive way, reduce pain and encourage the body’s natural healing process, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse.

 An increasing number of people are using this safe, natural therapy
as a way of relaxing balancing and harmonising the body.
