What it is?

Reflexology is a massage that uses pressure on your feet, hands, and ears. It’s based on the idea that these body parts connect to specific organs and systems. People who do this massage are called reflexologists.

Reflexology goes way back, about 5000 years, to Egypt and China. Hieroglyphics in an Egyptian pyramid from 2330 BC show that it was part of their culture. By the late 14th century, a version called “reflex zone therapy” was used all over Europe. This therapy divides the body into ten zones, five on each side.

Later on, they added three lines to divide the body both horizontally and vertically. Modern reflexology came about in the early 20th century thanks to Dr. William Fitzgerald and physiotherapist Eunice Ingham. They’re known as the father and mother of reflexology. Their work helped us understand how it works by mapping the whole body’s “reflexes” on the feet, creating the first reflexology foot chart.

Tense shoulders: Apply Revita Veda Body oil Energize to ease muscle tension and provide a warming effect. Massage the area beneath the little toe on your feet.
