Reflexology goes as far back as 2300 BC and was practiced by the ancient Chinese, Egyptian and Native Indians to control pain and mental balance. The therapy as we know now, was developed by Eunice Ingham, an American Physiotherapist in the mid to late twentieth century and introduced it to the UK in 1966. Eunice discovered that by using pressure techniques across the soles of the feet, she was able to stimulate and heal other parts of the body.
This therapy proved to be a safe and an effective tool in health care, and in recent years it gained a huge popularity with corporate clients needing to tackle stress and reduce absenteeism.
Benefits Reflexology can give exceptional results with positive effects to a variety of medical conditions such as: back pain, digestion problems, sleep disorders, asthma, diabetes, sciatica, cancer, MS, sinuses, etc, and can be very beneficial during pregnancy and labour.
