What is Reflexology

Whilst the art of reflexology dates back to Ancient

Egypt, India and China, it wasn’t until 1913 that Dr

William Fitzgerald introduced this therapy to the West

as ‘zone theory’.

He noted that the reflex areas on the feet and hands

were linked with other areas and organs within the

body, in that zone.

In the 1930’s Eunice Ingham further developed

Fitzgerald’s 10 zone theory into what is known today as

reflexology. Her Ingham chart is the typical standard

used by reflexologist around the world.

The theory is that the feet contain mirrored maps of the

body and by stimulating reflex points on those maps

the body is encouraged back to balance. It is a deeply

relaxing therapy.

Reflexology can be used to help restore, balance, and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium. This gentle therapy encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance.
