What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a gentle pressure of the thumb over every part of the foot. It is thought that it may have originated in China over 5,000 years ago, however there is concrete evidence in the shape of paintings found in the tomb of an Egyptian physician that it may have been practiced there at an even earlier time.
It is based on the principle that there are points on the foot that correspond to each and every structure and organ in the body. Working these areas of the feet has been found to release blockages in the flow of energy present along the reflexology zones in a persons's body, thus restoring the normal balance and allowing the body to heal itself.
