Reflexology or Zone Therapy is an ancient non-invasive form of healing. The Chinese, Ancient Egyptians and North American Indians all used a type of foot massage to help heal people, there is a pictograph in an Egyptian tomb showing the practice of foot pressure therapy that dates from 2500 to 2330 B.C.
Reflex points can be found on the feet, hands, face and ears.
As a holistic therapy the whole body is treated not just the symptoms, Reflexology can show areas of the body where there has been, there is currently or potentially an energy disturbance. Observation by the therapist may show discolouration, dryness, oedema of certain areas which may be significant or may not be. Working on the feet or hands with the characteristic ‘thumb walk’ of a reflexologist, crystalline deposits may be picked up. The client may feel as though the therapist is ‘sticking her nail’ in.
When preformed regularly reflexology can help with relaxation, reduce stress levels and maintain well-being. It can help the body to remove waste products and toxins at the same time the circulation in the feet and rest of the body will also be improved.
Conditions found to benefit are constipation, colic, PMS, headaches, sinusitis, skin conditions, insomnia and pain control.
