From the Association of Reflexologists (AOR)

Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy that can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing; by reducing stress in people’s lives can be key in optimising good health and building resilience.

What’s the main theory behind reflexology?

The theory of reflexology is that all the systems and organs of the whole body are mirrored or reflected in smaller peripheral areas, for example the feet, hands, ears and face. These can be seen in relation to the feet by following the link to the interactive reflexology maps below.

Whilst the art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, this therapy was not introduced to the West until Dr William Fitzgerald developed ‘Zone therapy’ in the early 1900s. He believed that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone.

Is reflexology suitable for me?

Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care, and everyone in between. However, there may occasionally be times when it is not suitable to provide a treatment. The best advice we can give you is to give your local reflexologist a ring and ask! Please note: reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice.

The importance of finding the right therapist who are suitably qualified and experienced.

Whatever therapy you are receiving, whether that be counselling or another holistic therapy, it is extremely important that you use a therapist who is suitably qualified and experienced in the field. Recently the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) have contributed to a BBC documentary to discuss these issues.

"We've contributed to a BBC documentary which has highlighted some of the most important public protection issues within our profession."
