What is Reflexology?

Reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt, India and China. In 1913 it was introduced as “Zone Therapy” to the Western world by Dr William Fitzgerald who believed that reflex areas on the hands and feet were linked to different parts of the body. Eunice Ingham developed this further in the 1930’s and it then became known as reflexology.

Reflexology History


Reflexology is a holistic, natural therapy which may be received by anyone young or old. There may be times when it is not suitable and you will be advised of this if necessary.

Reflexology is a non-invasive, complementary health therapy which involves a reflexologist working on points and areas of the hands, feet and lower leg. The body may be in a state of “imbalance” following illness, stress, injury or disease and vital energy pathways may be blocked which prevent it from functioning effectively. Reflexology may help to restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium.

Reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice, and you should tell your doctor that you are receiving reflexology for whatever reason.
