Thanks to the engravings that have been found today we can know that Foot Reflexology has been applied since the year 2,300 BC in Egypt.
Subsequently, it is also known that this technique has been applied in countries such as India or China but the “push” has not been used until the twentieth century through Dr. William Fitzgerald and, above all, Dr. Eunice Inglham.
It is to this same to which we owe the honor of the study of the, commonly called “maps”, which are the reflex points of our organs in the foot.
What is Foot Reflexology?
Foot Reflexology is the therapy that is responsible for stimulating reflex points located on the feet producing specific effects on other parts of the body.
This practice works the nervous system and our different organs and muscles through dermatomes.
With the proper stimulation of the feet, messages can be sent along the nervous system to all areas of the body and the brain since the reflex areas of the foot are 5 to 20 times more sensitive than the organs by themselves.

How often is it recommended to receive a session??
It is recommended to do that massage once or twice a week, because with a few days of interval between sessions will give more time to the body’s natural processes to follow its normal course.
