Reflexology is a powerful healing practice based on the premise that your entire body is mirrored on the feet, hands and ears through a system of reflexes. Using special techniques, reflexology stimulates these reflexes prompting a natural healing response.
The beginning of Reflexology history according to ancient Chinese records monks brought Reflexology from India to China 5000 years ago. 4000 years ago Reflexology had its first footprint on pictographs found on tombs in ancient Egypt. The practice of foot manipulation therapy and later referred to as ‘Pressure Therapy’ spread through ancient Asia and gradually moved West. Modern reflexology has been attributed to William Fitzgerald, M.D. and Joe Shelby Riley, M.D. in the 1920’s
Reflexology helps to create a healthy harmonious state within the body and triggers the body’s natural powers of self healing. With massage and agreed pressure on reflective points on ears hands and or feet Reflexology then stimulates the nerve pathways, induces muscle relaxation, and helps the body to balance itself.
Reflexology can be considered ideal for:
• relieving pain
