How does reflexology work?

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients. In the 1930’s, Eunice Ingham, (the founder of modern Reflexology), further developed and refined the zone therapy into what is now known as reflexology. She observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrors congestion or tension in a corresponding part of the body. Thus, when you treat the big toes there is a related effect in the head, and treating the whole foot can have a relaxing and healing effect on the whole body.

Eunice Ingham believed that by applying pressure through massage, stretching and holding the feet or hands the body could be bought back into balance giving a feeling of well being Reflexology is safe, natural and non-invasive, providing more than just physical benefits as it deeply calms and balances your entire mind, body and spirit. Reflexology is one of the UK’s most popular therapies.
