Reflexology is a natural, safe and non-invasive healing therapy. Reflexology uses the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Working the reflexes may help to relieve stress and tension in the body, improve nerve and blood supply and promote the correct functioning of nerve impulses. This would help the body to heal and balance itself in a natural way.
Reflexology is thought to have originated in countries such as China, Egypt and Japan. An Inscription found in an Egyptian tomb of Ahkhmahor at Sagara is the earliest evidence of Reflexology. It shows people receiving hand and feet massages, asking that the massages ‘give strength’ and also ‘do not cause pain’.
The ancient Chinese worked the hands and feet to help maintain good health and prevent disease. They developed Traditional Chinese medicine which incorporates acupuncture, acupressure, herbalism and exercise. TCM believes that ones ‘vital energy’ or ‘life force’ runs through 14 major meridians in the body. 12 of these meridians either begin or end in the tips of the fingers and toes. Massage in these areas stimulates the flow of energy and clears congestion, therefore encouraging harmony in the body.
