Who discovered the foot reflexology technique?
It was around 2000 years before Christ that we first heard of treatment with foot reflexology. For the Egyptians and the Chinese, treatments with this technique had been part of their tradition for ages. In the 20th century and on the initiative of Doctor William FITZGERALD, the principle developed more and more. Currently it is a natural therapy widespread in Europe. It is therefore a dynamic therapeutic discipline that does not stop evolving. For several years, this method has been integrated into the treatment of personal assistance and the various hospital treatments.

Treat yourself with plantar reflexology: the sessions
The foot occupies a very important place in reflexology, because it is the representation of the body in miniature. Know that each reflex zone of the body (organ or gland) has its own correspondence on the foot. The application of pressure on these areas allows the localization and elimination of tensions, the prevention or elimination of diseases. In peace, anyone can practice foot reflexology. Indeed, like all other types of massages, this technique adapts to any person and to specific expectations. With this technique, a one-hour session, every two weeks, is enough to maintain your health. the reflexologist begins the session with a small exchange with the massed in order to determine the origin of the disorder. With a map of the feet, he then launches into the pressures and massage of the corresponding reflex points.
