Reflexology is the modern name for a therapy that has been known and used in many countries of the ancient world. It was first recorded in Egypt about 2330BC!
Reflexology deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all organs, systems and glands of the body making the feet a “mirror image” of the body. It is applied by gentle pressure using fingers and thumbs over all areas of the feet and ankles (or hands if appropriate).
