Zu Qigong (Foot Energy Work)
Simple, calming and deeply relaxing.
Zu – (pronounced zoo) is the Chinese word for foot/feet.
Qi – translates as energy, vitality or Life
Gong – translates as working with, developing or cultivating
Qigong – can therefore be interpreted as working with energy, developing vitality and or cultivating life.
Giving us: “ZU QIGONG – Foot Energy Work“
Pronounced Zoo Chee Kong, is a new complementary therapy technique, applying a very light touch and working only on the feet and lower legs. A deceptively simple routine, providing a therapeutic outcome that is gently on the recipient and yet
producing powerful holistic benefits.
Zu Qigong is a non-invasive complementary therapy, designed around the energy system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and the basic principle of reflexology i.e. the theory that different points of the feet, hands etc. correspond to specific areas
of the body.
The ‘energy system’ of TCM refers to the circulation of Qi or energy via a network of meridians / energy channels. It is this system which is used in treatments such as acupuncture and acupressure massage and provides the theoretical basis for the
exercise disciplines of Tai Chi and Qigong. Although the meridian system remains scientifically unproven, Eastern physicians have successfully applied the theories involved for centuries.
Unlike classical reflexology, where clients can find the pressure applied slightly uncomfortable. Zu Qigong uses on a very light touch. The Zu Qigong therapist does NOT diagnose, or treat specific illnesses, but works holistically using a simple routine
- Relax the mind and body.
- Promote natural circulation of energy throughout the body.
- Encourage the body to achieve a balanced flow of energy.
Zu Qigong offers a therapeutic approach designed to provide relaxation for the mind and body, helping to re-establish the internal balance and encourage the natural healing abilities of your body.

What is Lymphoedema?
Persistent tissue swelling due to blockage or absence of the lymph drainage channels with accumulation of interstitial fluid – Mortimer,1998.

Sally developed RLD from first principles and through extensive clinical practice. This innovative approach to reflexology has attracted, national and international awards and widespread recognition.
RLD aims to stimulate the function of the lymphatic system and drain excess lymph from the damaged area.
This technique is practised mainly on the feet, where this is not possible, it can also be done on the hands. It is a very gentle relaxing treatment that yields great results.
