Foot massage dates back to ancient Egypt and China. Over 5,000 years ago our ancestors were already rubbing each otherâs feet and hands.
Reflexology, as we know it today, was developped in the late 1800s.
What is reflexology?
Methodical acupressure to a personâs feet (or hands) in order to generate a physical change to the corresponding body part.
How does reflexology work?
Also called âzone therapy,â this mixture of healing art and science is based on the premise that an energy channel encompassing 12 vital organs exists from our feet to the tops of our heads. Applying pressure with his/her hands, a reflexologist unblocks that channel to restore proper health and organ function.
