What is Reflexology?

In countries like India, Egypt, Japan and China practices that were comparable to reflexology have been used for many centuries. The rationale that disorders could be relieved and recovery could be experienced through the applying of pressure on several precise parts of the feet and hands is something that different civilisations have adopted through the centuries. In the early 1900's the modern day manifestation of reflexology was established, mostly thanks to the diligence of Doctor William H Fitzgerald. His hypotheses were further augmented during the nineteen thirties by nurse and physiotherapist Eunice Ingham, who mapped the feet.

A non-intrusive complementary and alternative treatment method which endeavors to accomplish increased wellness, balance and so help in the recovery process by the management of body's energy pathways, reflexology has grown to be extremely popular over the last few decades. It is sometimes presumed that a reflexologist works just on the feet of their patients, but actually they often also manipulate other areas of the body where the reflexes are linked with the energy pathways, such as the lower leg, face, ears and hands. Pressure is applied to these regions during a reflexology session to reposition the energy pathways within the body and so hopefully achieve the desired results.

Hand Reflexology

Torquay Hand Reflexology (01803)

Though in the United Kingdom, hand reflexology isn't quite so well known as foot reflexology, it can be just as beneficial. The hands have got reflex zones which correspond to every gland, organ and part of the body. Whenever they're worked on by a reflexologist it can rebalance and relax the body and boost blood flow. Though the reflex points are deeper in the hands and the hands are not as sensitive as the feet, hand reflexology can still be very effective. It's possible to employ hand reflexology either on their own or together with foot or other reflexology treatments.

Facial Reflexology Torquay

Facial Reflexology Torquay (01803)

Although reflexology itself has been around since ancient Egyptian times, the more modern version of facial reflexology only appeared during the nineteen eighties in Vietnam. When pressure is applied to certain reflexology points on the face of the patient, it can stimulate the flow of energy around the body, driving out toxins and facilitating healing.

Facial reflexology treatment employs smooth, calming and gentle massaging movements that work their way up to the hairline and ears. Many people in Torquay consider facial reflexology as a sort of natural facelift, as it is also proven to have a beneficial effect on the skin and muscles of the face.

Facial reflexology has been endorsed in studies to be a beneficial therapy for people suffering from sleeping disorders and insomnia. The improved blood circulation, the reduction of stress levels and the release of muscular tension by facial reflexology are all targeted areas associated with an improvement in sleep patterns.

Reflex Zones

Foot Chart

Within our hands, feet and face there are various specific reflex points which are connected to all of the glands, organs and systems situated within our bodies. A reflexologist will concentrate on such reflex zones to alleviate aches and pains in those matching parts. Because reflexology is focused on pressure areas within the feet, it should not be looked at as a regular foot massage, which merely involves rubbing. What makes it far more than a simple massage, is the fact that the pressure areas are deep down and they have to be hit at exact angles and with the appropriate level of pressure by the reflexologist. They'll work on one foot at a time and they may apply some powder or oil on to your feet to make it simpler as they begin to work on the reflex points with their fingers and thumbs.
