What is Reflexology?

Whilst it is thought that the art of reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt, India and China, it was not until 1913 that a gentleman named Dr William Fitzgerald introduced the therapy to the West as Zone Therapy. He noticed that reflex areas on the feet and hands could be linked to organs and other areas of the body within the same zones.

In the 1930s Eunice Ingham further developed this Zone Therapy into what is now known as reflexology. She observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot or ankle area could be mirrored in the corresponding part of the body.

 Who can benefit from Reflexology?

Reflexology can be suitable for all ages. Following an initial course of treatments, many of my clients choose reflexology as a regular way of enhancing the bodys natural healing ability and maintaining good health and well-being. 

Please note that Reflexology does not take the place of seeking medical advice and should you have any medical concerns please talk to your GP.
