What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is an ancient practice based on the study that all the body’s organs, glands and systems are mapped out on our feet. Pressure techniques are applied to specific reflexes or points on the feet, stimulating a response in the corresponding part of the body.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, energy (Chi) flows through our bodies. If the energy flows freely, we are balanced and healthy, however, obstruction to the flow could result in illness. Reflexology was brought to the West in 1915 by William Fitzgerald, an American ear, nose and throat specialist. He noted that pressure on one part of the body seemed to produce a numbing effect elsewhere, and introduced the idea of energy zones, running, as with Chinese Meridians, from head to toe.
Then, in the 1930s, Eunice Ingham, an American physiotherapist, wrote a book, Stories the Feet Can Tell, further developing the technique of relieving tension in the body by massaging certain points on the feet.
