What is Reflexology?
Reflexology originated over 5000 years ago stemming from many ancient civilisations around the world. This has included civilisations in Egypt, China, Africa to Native Indian tribes in America.
Modern reflexology was derived from Dr W. Fitzgerald who published work on ‘zone therapy’ in the 1930’s. This was later later developed by physiotherapist Eunice Ingham. Eunice worked on hundreds of patients carefully cross checking patients ailments with ‘reflex zones’ specifically on the feet. This lead to the development of the modern foot reflexology charts.
Reflexology theory is based on the principle that the feet contain ‘reflex zones’ associated with the anatomy of the body. Reflexologists believe that when these reflex zones become active, an imbalance is likely occurring in the corresponding anatomical body part. Through stimulation or sedation of these reflex zones it is believed to have harmonising effect on the bodies health.
