Reflexology in some form dates back at least 2000 years when the Chinese used a form of pressure therapy similar to acupuncture. It was also used by the Egyptians and Ancient India.
In the 20th century the practice developed in the UK and elsewhere. Modern day reflexology began in USA at the beginning of 20th Century and grew rapidly in the UK during the 1980s and 1990s.
In 2000 it was agreed that Reflexologists should belong to a professional body, and in 2011 a standardised form of training was introduced.
Reflexology works on the basis that all areas of the body can be mapped on to reflex areas on the feet, and by applying pressure to these reflex areas the whole body can be accessed.
The process of reflexology is deeply relaxing and enables the rebalancing of the mind and body. A reflexology treatment lasts an hour and it is time which is completely yours. It gives you the time and the space to heal, whether that be emotionally or physically.
