The History of Reflexology

From ancient texts, illustrations and artefacts we know that Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Russians and ancient Egyptians worked on the feet to promote good health.

 

Today many of these techniques have been developed into what is now known as Reflexology.

 

Dr William Fitzgerald developed the modern zone theory of the human body, arguing that parts of the body correspond to other parts.

 

His colleague Dr Edwin Bowers set about proving the validity of this theory with a dramatic demonstration; he showed that he could stick a pin in a person’s face without causing pain if he first applied pressure to that person’s hand which corresponded to that area of the face.

 

And so Modern Reflexology is born...
