The art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China and it wasn't until 1913 that Dr Fitzgerald introduced this therapy to the west as 'Zone therapy'. He discovered that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone. In the 1930s Eunice Ingham further developed this theory and observed that congestion and tension in any part of the foot was mirrored in the corresponding part of the body.
Reflexology works by stimulating or calming parts of the body (as needed) through reflexes on the feet and thus restoring the body's own innate equilibrium.
Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive touch therapy which involves encouraging the body to reach a state of deep relaxation so that healing and rebalancing can take place.
