A Brief History of Reflexology

Reflexology is a complementary (or alternative) therapy, based on the same principles as Chinese acupuncture. Pressure-point massage of the feet was used in China over 5.000 years ago, as well as by the Ancient Egyptians, Hopi tribes of North America and 16th century European medical practitioners.

Reflexology is the technique of applying gentle pressure to reflex points on the feet or hands to bring a state of deep relaxation and to stimulate the body’s own healing abilities. It is a safe, natural therapy that can increase energy levels, help boost the immune   system and create a stronger body and calmer mind. Reflexology is all about bringing balance, harmony and a sense of well-being to the body.

The principle idea of reflexology is that the organs, nerves, glands and other parts of the body are connected to reflex areas on the feet and hands and when these areas are stimulated, a healing response in the related body area is activated. The holistic and in-depth nature of reflex therapy may also be attributed to the fact that the area which is stimulated during treatment is in direct relationship to those parts of the brain which control our emotional and physical responses. Reflex therapy is seen to enhance the health physically, mentally and emotionally both during and following a treatment with often lasting benefit.

With few exceptions there are almost no conditions in which reflex therapy cannot be useful. Whilst it may not always be able to ‘cure’, it can improve symptoms and general wellbeing.
