Reflexology has its roots in ancient civilisations, Egypt, India, Japan, China and the North American Indians. The scientific basis of Reflexology began with research beginning in the 1890’s into the benefits. Following on from this Dr Fitzgerald had his findings published in 1913 on how he was treating the body through pressure points on the feet. Over the years there have been a number of people who have had significant imput into Reflexology, I think the most notable was American Eunice Ingham, also known as “The Mother of Reflexology”, she was responsible for the Reflexology we know today. A student of Eunices, Doreen Bayley brought it to the UK in the early 1960’s. 

With over an incredible 7000 nerve endings in each foot it’s no wonder as reflexologists we can read the feet so well. Every part of your body has a reflex in the foot so by working each reflex it increases the blood flow, removes any deposits from the organs, glands or body system to ensure that it can function to the best of its ability. By using alternating pressure on your feet I work my way around your foot using my fingers and thumb. If you’re worried about it tickling you then please don’t, many clients have ticklish feet and don’t have any issues with a treatment.

Reflexology can be beneficial for so many conditions from Asthma to Arthritis, allergies, hormone imbalances to infertility, pregnancy, autoimmune conditions, anxiety, depression, digestive disorders and many more, as well as rebalancing your body it will be the best relaxation you’ll ever have.
