Reflexology is a relaxing therapy that treats the whole person - mind, body and emotions. Using thumbs and fingers, the practitioner stimulates reflex areas on the ‘map’ of the body that can be found on the feet. Treating the body as a whole (i.e. holistically) encourages balance throughout the mind, body and emotions, resulting in a greater sense of wellbeing.
Where did it come from?
Well, it’s both old and new. From ancient texts, illustrations and artefacts, we know that the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Russians and Egyptians worked on the feet to promote good health. Today, many of these same techniques have been developed into a modern scientific method called Reflexology, a discipline that builds on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all the major organs and systems of the body. read more about refexology
