When we moved to Beaumont in year 2009, We soon discovered there were very few massage parlors that specialized in Reflexology the art of massaging specific areas of foot or hand to stimulate circulation, healing and stress relief in other areas of the body.
So we started our own massage parlor: Sole So Happy is our foray into an entrepreneurial experience. ” In this economy, people need foot massage, because there is a lot of stress,” So we keep the economy in mind with our prices : $15 can get you a half-hour foot massage.
What is Reflexolog?
Reflexology, or zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion.
Reflexology is also known as “Foot Massage”. It is an ancient healing art based on the principles that there are points in the hands and feet that correspond to every parts, organ and gland in the body.
Reflexology originated in china, as much as 5,000 years ago and was first introduced in the west by Dr. William Fitzgerald in 1913. At the time Dr. Fitzgerald was an E.N.T specialist and surgeon. However when working with patients feet, He noticed that when he applied pressure to specific parts, it sometimes affected another part of the body in a positive way. Therefore, Dr. Fitzgerald created his first reflexology chart.
