Reflexology


Reflexology is one of the oldest forms of natural medicine. It is thought to have originated in China and records indicate that a form of it was practised 5000 years ago.

In the modern era Reflexology was discovered by Dr William H Fitzgerald, an American physician. He was the first person to make the findings of Zone Therapy, as it was called at the time, known to the world at large. 
There are a number of similarities between Reflexology and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Many of the points stimulated with reflexology are also acupuncture points and many of the acupuncture meridians pass through both the hands and feet, the main points stimulated with reflexology.

In reflexology every organ and~ gland in the body can be mapped out on the soles of the feet or the palms of the hands. These are known as reflex points. The therapist applies pressure to the reflexes to correct any imbalances in the body’s ten Ten zones and so restores health to the body.
 Restoring the uninhibited flow of energy helps the body's self healing.
