Reflexology is an ancient therapy and has been rediscovered time and time again. Archaeological evidence points to ancient reflexology medical practices in Egypt 2330 BCE, China 2704 BCE and Japan 690 CE.
It is based on the principle that the feet and hands mirror the body. The glands, organs, and other systems of the body are mapped onto the feet and hands and these are known as reflex points. By manipulating these reflexes with pressure and massage the therapist can detect and treat imbalances in the body, and help release blockages and re-balance the energy flow in the body. This brings the body back into balance which promotes the body’s natural healing power.
Reflexology is a gentle, relaxing and non-invasive holistic treatment that can be performed on either the feet or the hands and could help with:
- Stress and tension
- Migraine and headaches
- High blood pressure
- Clear the body of toxins
- Improves circulation
- Back, shoulder and neck pain
- Encourages healing in the body
Reflexology complements standard medical treatment; however it should never be used as a substitute to medical care and is not recommended if you suffer from deep vein thrombosis, gangrene or a contagious disease.
