Reflexology has a long and fascinating history spanning thousands of years. We have information dating it back to
ancient Egypt and it has also been practised for many years in China and India.
Its introduction to the modern western world came in 1913 when Dr William Fitzgerald was the first to show us what
was then known as the 'Zone Therapy'.
The name remained the same until physiotherapist Eunice Ingham
developed it further in the 1930s, at which time it became known as 'Reflexology'. Some doctors, consultants and
other healthcare professionals recognise reflexology as a well-established, respected and effective therapy.
This gentle non-invasive therapy works on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which relate to all organs,
glands and systems of the body.
During therapy gentle pressure is applied to the feet. I find that this relaxes and encourages
self healing whilst also helping to restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium.
