Reflexology is a complementary therapy which works on the principal that all organs, systems and glands of the body have nerve endings which terminate on the hands and feet. By applying gentle and systematic pressure to these reflex areas balance can be restored to the body.
The history of Reflexology dates back over 5000 years to ancient Egypt, India and Japan.
Dr William Fitzgerald introduced it to the west in 1913 and was developed further in the 1930's by Eunice Ingham.
