Reflexology is natural holistic therapy with roots in ancient Egypt and China and India. It is over 5,000 years old but was re-introduced in the West in the early 1900s by Dr. William H. Fitzgerald.
Like acupuncture reflexology is a type of zone therapy based on the principle that there are energy zones running throughout the body. These are connected to reflex areas in the feet that correspond to all the major organs, glands and body parts. When these reflexes are properly stimulated the natural healing process of the body is put into action helping to achieve a naturally balanced body.
Reflexology can help to:
-Promote healing and improve wellbeing and vitality.
- Improve circulation.
-Reduce stress and pain.
-Treat conditions like insomnia, asthma, headaches, migraines and menstrual problems.
