The Clarendon Clinic offers Reflexology in Swinton, Manchester which can be beneficial for a wide variety of issues.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy that treats the whole person, not just the symptoms that they may be experiencing. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is usually in a state of “imbalance”. Vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Feet are a “minimap” of the body and by applying pressure to the reflexes, a reflexologist may support the body to heal itself. The aim of reflexology is to encourage the body to work naturally to create a state of “Homeostasis” – a balancing of the body.
History of Reflexology
Reflexology reaches as far back to Ancient Egypt, India & China, with the oldest historical evidence being found dating back to 2500BC. Dr William Fitzgerald introduced the therapy to the West in 1913 as “Zone Therapy”. He noted that by applying pressure to the reflex areas on the feet and hands, this corresponded with other areas and organs of the body. Eunice Ingham developed this further to what we know as reflexology today and she became known as the “Mother of Reflexology”.
