Reflexology is an ancient therapeutic treatment which can be dated back to Egyptian times. The modern treatment method used today is based upon a theory developed in 1913 by Dr William Fitzgerald that the body could be divided into ten vertical zones, or energy pathways, which culminate in reflex points on the feet and hands. He determined that every body part which lies within each zone is inter-related. In short, no one part of the body works in isolation. All systems are interdependent – anything effecting one part of the body will have a knock-on effect elsewhere.
This ‘Zone Therapy’ was further explored and developed by Eunice Ingham in the 1930s who observed that the reflexes on the hands and feet can be seen to correspond to all major organs, glands and body parts. Thus, by treating the whole foot or hand, a Reflexologist is in fact aiming to treat and restore balance to the whole body.
After an initial confidential consultation, the Reflexologist will massage and work the reflexes on both feet in turn whilst the client is lying or sitting. The Therapist feels with their hands for imbalances and tiny deposits in the feet which indicate congestion in corresponding parts of the body. The treatment is gentle and relaxing for the client as the Therapist applies varying degrees of pressure to the reflexes in order to remove blockages from the energy flow and stimulate self healing. Blockages can arise in the body's energy flow due to trauma, illness, injury or times of stress and they prevent the body from functioning properly. Some discomfort may sometimes be felt on the foot if there is an imbalance in the corresponding part of the body, but any such feeling should not last.
Reflexology works to reduce stress levels by soothing the central nervous system and inducing deep relaxation, thus restoring harmony and health to the body. It is not diagnostic, nor does it claim to cure, but it does try to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms of an illness, and encourage the body’s own healing abilities.
