What is Reflexology?


Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive holistic therapy, which is said to have originated from ancient Egypt and China amongst other places, it reached Britain and America in the early 1900’s. It is based on the discovery that certain points on the feet and hands correspond to organs, systems and structures within the body.
This relationship is called a reflex – the stimulation of one point brings about a response in another area.




Reflexology should not be confused or compared to having a foot massage, it is a specific pressure technique which works on precise reflex points on the feet, and it requires the practitioner to have a thorough knowledge of the human body – its physiology, anatomy and pathology.
The soles of your feet contain over 7,000 nerve endings, each of these nerves are connected to different parts and systems of your body. By stimulating specific reflexes it can illicit a natural healing response in the corresponding system or organ.
