Massage therapist uses thumbs, fingers, and various hand techniques to apply pressure to targeted areas of the feet using the acupressure points. Here at Nirvelli Day Spa we have certified therapists to do foot reflexology for you. You are sure that your feet will receive the best possible relaxation therapy they deserve.
Reflexology is known to have been used in ancient Egypt. And since that time, the practice of foot reflexology has been around in varied styles across Japan and China. In the early 20th century, this therapy was reintroduced to the Western world by Dr. William Fitzgerald. He discovered that by applying gentle and focused pressure to the hands and feet, it could give relief to many parts of the body. It is also then that the 10 “zones” in the feet and hands were identified.
In general, the theory behind reflexology is that there are certain areas in our feet that correspond to some parts and glands in the body. For example, the inner edge of our foot has points relating to the spine and back, while the pads of the toes corresponds to the eyes, ears and sinuses. Reflexologists believe that you can restore health to the body by massaging these certain points.
