Reflexology

Reflexology is a non–invasive, holistic therapy which stimulates zones and systems. Reflexology deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to parts of the body. It is a unique method, using the thumb and fingers, usually performed on the feet but in some cases also on the hands and ears. Gentle massage and acupressure are used to stimulate theses areas.


This therapy is thought to date back to ancient Egypt; however evidence shows its usage for centuries in both China and India.



Modern Reflexology.

Reflexology was introduced to the United States in 1913 by William H. Fitzgerald, M.D. (1872–1942), an ear, nose, and throat specialist, and Dr. Edwin Bowers.  Fitzgerald claimed that applying pressure had an anaesthetic effect on other areas of the body.

Reflexology was modified in the 1930s and 1940s by Eunice D. Ingham (1889–1974), a nurse and physiotherapist. Ingham claimed that the feet and hands were especially sensitive, and mapped the entire body into "reflexes" on the feet renaming "zone therapy" to reflexology.
