PostSubject: About Reflexology   Thu Jun 11, 2009 3:27 pm

The history

It is not known exactly when reflexology was first used or whether it was a chance finding or intended. The first definite medical reference was found in ancient Egypt around 25000Bc. There are strong links between reflexology and acupressure as the both are a meridian therapy.

Eunice Ingham discovered that different zones could be linked to parts of the anatomy.

Dr William Fitzgerald used pressure points on the hands of his patients as a kind of anaesthetic.

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a specialised foot massage designed to reach specific reflex points to aid balance and harmony to the energy flowing through them. It is a treatment that concentrates on the pressure points and meridian lines. Each point coincides with a part of the body or organ. The treatment lasts for about an hour with a lower leg massage to finish off.


Reflexology is a treatment that can keep the body in balance and prevent congestion and toxin build up. Therefore, reflexology can aid

· Headaches/migraines
· Sinusitis and catarrh
· Hay fever
· Eye disorders
· Ear disorders
· Toothache
· Digestive disorders (especially constipation)
· Menstrual problems(PMT, infertility, period pains, menopause)

Reflexology treats the person as a whole and not just isolated symptoms, it relaxes the mind and emotions and can treat various disorders at one time.

Unfortunately common sense is not all that common!!

How you treat me is your karma - how I react is mine
