Reflexology is one of the most popular alternative therapies. It reduces stress, and promotes relaxation and well-being. But did you know that it’s origins can be traced back over 1000 years?
Ancient hieroglyphics and other archeological evidence suggests that Reflexology was practised in Egypt, Japan and China long before the birth of Christ.
Many reflexology ideas emerged in the 19th century, and then in 1938 Physiotherapist Eunice Ingham developed a system of reflex areas- charting the areas of the foot that correspond to other areas and organs of the body.

What is Reflexology?
Reflexologists use hand and foot massage to alleviate stress and promote well-being.
Different areas of the foot are connected to other organs of the body, and with massage treatment- you can have an positive effect on another area of the body. No creams, or lotions are used during this massage treatment.
It is a popular alternative therapy with many reflexologists working in an existing salon, wellness centre or starting their own business.
