Reflexology

Reflexology (sometimes called zone therapy) is a therapy in which the nerve endings primarily in the feet are stimulated by specific massage techniques to effect changes in another part of the body and thereby create health and help overcome disease.

imageAlthough there is evidence to suggest that reflexology was being practised as far back as ancient Egypt, the science of reflexology used today was founded by Dr William Fitzgerald, an American ear nose and throat surgeon.

He noticed that pressure on specific areas of the body produced an anaesthetising effect on a related area. Developing his theory, he divided the body into ten equal zones which ended in areas of the feet and hands. 

In the 1930s a massage therapist called Eunice Ingham refined Dr Fitzgerald’s zones and developed what is now known as ‘reflexology’.

She observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrored congestion or tension in a related part of the body. As a result, treating the areas of the feet was found to have a relaxing and healing effect on different organs and tissues inside the body.
