The healing art of Reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt, India and China. It was discovered by Dr William Fitzgerald who brought it to the attention of the Western world. In the 1930’s, Eunis Ingham further developed the ancient techniques.
Reflexology is normally associated with the feet, however it can also be used with the same effect on the hands. There are reflexes on both feet and hands, which correspond to the whole body, as though a map has been transposed over them. Incorporating Precision Reflexology techniques by linking specific reflexes, this enables the practitioner to connect to a persons energy system.
These reflexes are linked directly to the organs and systems of the body. Reflexology is a Complementary Therapy that can be received on both the feet or the hands, treating the whole person, mind body and spirit, not just for the relief of any presenting issues.
Over the course of two years, I've been having regular therapies with Amanda. The Reflexology significantly help me manage my chronic pain and fatigue in a way medication can't. After a treatment I'm very relaxed and in a better frame of mind to continue with what ever challenges I may face in the upcoming weeks ahead.I have also had Reiki from Amanda who truly has a gift of healing and I look forward to every treatment I book.
