Reflexology is based on the presence of ten energy zones within the body. This energy division was discovered in the late 19th century by an American Dr. William Fitzgerald, an ear nose and throat specialist. While working in hospitals in Paris, Vienna and London, Fitzgerald discovered that he could relieve pain in one part of a patient’s body by applying pressure to another.
With Reflexology, your body’s health is reflected in your feet. The various organs, nerves and glands in your body are connected with certain ‘reflex areas’ on the soles, toes, tops and sides of your feet. By applying pressure to specific areas on the feet, remarkable healing effects are noted in seemingly unconnected and unrelated distant regions.
Reflexology is for all the family. It is a safe and simple process which promotes better health by reducing stress and tension, strengthening the body’s ability to resist disease, flushing toxins out of the system, and improving circulation so the body can heal itself.
