What is Reflexology?
Used in ancient times, reflexology is a way of activating the healing powers of the body. It is a holistic complementary therapy, treating the whole person (physical, mental and emotional) no just the presenting symptoms.
Reflexology is an art and science based on the premise that there are reflex areas in the feet, hands, ears and face that correspond to parts of the body, including glands and organs. Reflexology is not a massage, but a unique method of using thumbs and fingers on these reflex areas.
In about 1913 Dr. William Fitzgerald introduced a therapy to the west called Zone Therapy. He noted that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone. In the 1930's Eunice Ingham further developed this Zone Therapy into what is now known as Reflexology. Eunice observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrored in the corresponding part of the body.
I trained with the International Institute of Reflexology whose founder, Dwight Byers is the nephew of Eunice Ingham and is the only organisation who is legally entitled to teach the Orginal Ingham method.
Reflexology can benefit people of all ages.
