Foot Reflexology

There is evidence from ancient Egypt from 2500BC in the form of pictographs showing what looks like foot reflexology being performed. It is a widely held view that reflexology was also used in China up to 5000 years ago. It is an age old and incredibly effective form of stimulating the body's own healing ability.

Foot Reflexology is a science that maps out the reflexes on the feet and hands to all the organs in the body. It has been observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot, mirrors the congestion or tension in a corresponding part in the body. For instance, when treating the big toe, it has a related effect in the head, and when treating the whole foot, it can have a relaxing and healing effect on the whole of the body. The healing art works on the principle of 'chi' or 'universal life energy'. When there is a blockage in the flow of this energy, 'dis-ease' will manifest itself in the body. When the blockage is released, then the energy can flow freely and the body's natural tendency to heal itself can take over.

Reflexology has developed into a respected and effective natural healing modality in the form of therapeutic foot massage, and has established a solid place in complimentary medicine. Not to be confused with basic foot massage, Foot Reflexology uses a specific pressure technique that works on precise reflex points on the feet that correspond with all body parts.

What happens during a treatment?

Pressure is applied to the reflex areas using specific thumb and finger techniques in a specific sequence. This causes physiological changes to take place in the body to stimulate the body's own healing potential. Working with the body's own energy pathways, energy blocks causing discomfort, pain, imbalance of the body's systems and stress are cleared.
