What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands, feet and ears that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body.

Origins of Reflexology.
Reflexology has been practiced for thousands of years in such places as India, China and Egypt. An ancient Egyptian wall painting of the 6th Dynasty (approx.2400 B.C.) found at Saqqara in the tomb of Ankhmahor, an ancient Egyptian physician, depicts two men working on the feet and hands of two other men. Reflexology has been used as a healing therapy by the North American native people for generations, and was thought to have been passed down by the Inca civilisation.
