What Is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a natural, alternative therapy that involves the application of pressure to zones on the hands and feet using specific thumb, hand and tool techniques. The system is based on the principal that the body is reflected, via the nerves, in specific zones and reflexes in the hands and feet.
The earliest origins of Reflexology are documented in ancient Eqyptian heiroglyphs and inscriptions over 3000 years old. It is maintained that the Egyptian process of working on feet to affect health outcomes migrated to other cultures via the Roman Empire.
How Does Reflexology Work?
Application of pressure to the zones and reflex points in the hands and feet serve to release tension throughout the body. Medical doctors agree that the majority of health concerns are associated with nervous stress and tension. By relieving stress and tension, reflexology balances nerve function and blood circulation, and helps the body to normalize. It is in this state of deep relaxation that symptoms reduce and feelings of well being are produced.
Whilst all body systems can benefit from reflexology, the most noticeable effects will be felt in your circulation, nervous and lymphatic systems.
Regular reflexology sessions conditions your body systems into a more balanced mode of operation. When such a relaxed state is your norm, more positive lifestyle changes are instigated.
Reflexology is also used for post-operative recovery and palliative care. Reflexology is recommended as a complimentary therapy and should not replace medical treatment.

So making time for Reflexology actually gives you more time for a better life!

Reflexology Chart of Foot Reflex Points
Many clients call or email wanting to know where specific reflex points are for self-treatment. Below you will find a chart that I had deigned of foot reflex points/zones. Technically it’s fairly accurate, the upper reflexes are a bit stretched, but it looks gorgeous! The chart was based off the Ingham Method chart available from the International Institute of Reflexology.
Please be aware that Robyn Senden is not a massage or acupuncture therapist. To avoid disappointment, please do not make enquiries about these services.
