massagefloridareflexologyDating back to the ancient Egyptians and Chinese, Reflexology is based on the theory that there are reflexes with the hands and feet which correspond to every organ, gland and system of the body.

In 1913, Dr. William Fitzgerald introduced to us the “map” of the feet and hands which many of us have seen.

Applying pressure to spots within each zone of the foot or palm has direct effect on its corresponding part of the body. It is believed to cause increased circulation to each part, and help foster better function.

The goal of Reflexology is decidedly Eastern, to help balance and maintain the body’s equilibrium. It is effective for relieving most types of skeletal and muscular pain and in general terms, it has to do with the reduction of stress.

It is typically performed on a clothed client without creams or oils, on a chair or table.
