Foot Reflexology is an applied pressure therapy that involves stimulating reflex points that are located on the foot. These foot reflex points correspond to specific areas of the body and when used singly or in combination, produce therapeutic benefit.

The history of Foot Reflexology is lost in antiquity; however, there is substantial information to suggest its use as long ago as 5,000 years in China, Egypt, and India. In modern times Foot Reflexology was explored and promoted through the research of Sir Henry Head of London in the 1890’s. Later in the 1920’s, an American doctor, William Fitzgerald incorporated Foot Reflexology into his “Zone Therapy”, a theory in which the body and its organs and tissues are divided in to five zones, all five of which are represented on the feet.
