Reflexology

“Reflexology is a theory and therapy that uses the feet to treat the whole body” (Tucker, L 2009)

Reflexology is a holistic therapy based upon the principle that the whole body is connected, therefore by manipulating particular aspects of the feet (reflex areas), we inevitably promote a beneficial impact on corresponding parts of the body.

Eunice Ingham was referred to as the “mother of reflexology” as she developed the theory of mapping by using both longitudinal and transverse lines, running head to toe, to establish connecting zones of energy. It is believed that blockages in any particular zone can create tension, negative energy and imbalance.

Reflexology aims to manipulate these areas by using a number of massage techniques to speed up the healing process, relieve stress and promote blood circulation/neural efficiency.

Reflexology is an extremely relaxing therapy, often simply acquired by those looking forward to complete relaxation and a session of pampering!
