Reflexology is a non-invasive, complementary therapy working on reflex points predominantly on the feet, but also hands and face. Reflexologists believe that the body is represented in the foot and that by these reflex points they can dissolve blockages/crystals thus allowing the body to heal itself physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Dr Fitzgerald introduced the concept of zone therapy in Reflexology. The body is sectioned into 10 zones, 5 on each foot, the head is the big toe in zone 1; from here you work your way to the outer body the ears and shoulders are located in zone 5. The body systems and organs also sit with in these zones, for example directly below the head is the neck, the oesophagus, all the way down to the bladder. By thumb walking the zones the therapist can feel for crystals, energy blockages, built up toxins in particular areas and then work to release the blockages allowing the body to heal itself.
Apart from being an incredibly relaxing treatment, reflexology has many benefits. It can help to relieve stress and anxiety, improve sleep and improve circulation.
