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 believed that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone.
In the 1930’s Eunice Ingham further developed this zone theory into what is now known as reflexology. Ingham believed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot may be mirrored in a corresponding part of the body.
People may seek reflexology treatment to assist with managing their individual symptoms or as a complementary therapy while receiving conventional treatment relating to...
Keep in mind that individual results from Reflexology may vary.
How can reflexology help me?
Reflexology may be used in conjunction with other modalities and treatments. However, as with any therapy, please consult with your trained medical professional to check that it is suitable for your particular needs.
What happens when I go for treatment?
On the first visit, the reflexology practitioner will have a preliminary talk with you to discuss any present and past health issues and lifestyle factors.
During reflexology treatment, the reflexologist will use their hands to apply pressure to the feet. (A professionally trained reflexologist can often detect subtle changes in specific points on the feet.) As with most therapies, the application and the effects of reflexology therapy can vary for each individual.
A treatment session usually lasts for about one hour.
