What is Foot Reflexology?
Reflexology is more than a foot massage. It is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, as a type of preventative maintenance.
Is Reflexology new?
The idea behind reflexology is not new - in fact, it’s ancient! It was practiced as early as 2330 B.C. by the Egyptian culture as seen in hieroglyphics. Reflexology as we know it today was first researched and developed by Eunice Ingham, the pioneer in this field. Her book on the subject was published in 1938. And since 1942, Reflexology training has been available.
What is the Ingham Method of Reflexology?
It is the combined work of the late Eunice Ingham and her nephew Dwight C. Byers, the world’s leading authority on Foot and Hand Reflexology.
What does Reflexology do?
The Ingham Method of Reflexology is used primarily for relaxing tension. Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension. Reflexology improves nerve and blood supply, and helps the body balance itself.
What is a treatment like?
The therapist will briefly go over your health history and answer any questions you may have. The treatment itself lasts approximately 15 minutes on each foot. Specific techniques are used to stimulate the various reflexes and reduce muscular tension and pain. Be sure to let the therapist know if you have tender areas during the treatment. When finished, you are left feeling refreshed and invigorated.
