What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a non-invasive touch therapy that can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and well-being

The Origin Story

The origins of reflexology are believed to date back to 2500 BC. Evidence suggests that reflexology may have been used in Egypt as illustrations found show medical practitioners performing hand and foot treatments on patients. In the 1890s, British scientists found that nerves connect the skin and internal organs. They also found that the body’s entire nervous system tends to adjust to outside factors, including touch. In the early 1900’s a Dr William Fitzgerald recognised that by applying pressure to certain points on the feet you could reduce the levels of pain. He even wrote an article titled “To stop that toothache, squeeze your toe”

How does it all work?

Reflexology works by gently massaging different points on your feet that correspond to the different organs and systems within your body and stimulates the nerves. This stimulation also increases blood flow to that particular area and increased blood flow is one of the main ways your body repairs itself. An effective treatment can help encourage the body to heal itself and refind a place of balance.

This can bring benefits to the body such as:
