What is Reflexology ?

The art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, it wasn’t until 1913, that Dr. William Fitzgerald introduced this therapy to the West as ‘zone therapy’. He noted that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone. In 1930’s Eunice Ingham further developed this zone theory into what is now known as reflexology. She observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot mirrored in the corresponding part of the body. Reflexology is a complementary therapy, which works on the feet to aid healing to the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.

A few words about me

I believe the body has the ability to heal but we live very busy lives, we don’t have time to take a very good care of our self, we must learn to become more aware and listen to our body, in order to maintain health and well-being. As therapists we always treat our patients with love and our best intention, if we work together the results will be amazing.
