What is Reflexology and how can it help with Current Health Conditions, Assist in Preventative Healthcare, and Relaxation
Archeological evidence points to Ancient Reflexology Medical Practices in Egypt (2330 BCE), China (2704 BCE) and Japan (690 CE). In the West, the concept of Reflexology began to emerge in the 19th century with European and Russian research into the nervous system and reflexes- think Pavlov. Reflexology Therapies were created as Medical Practices but were soon eclipsed by use of surgery and drugs. The idea of using Reflexology for health improvement were carried on sporadically and brought to America in 1909 by Dr. William Fitzgerald, an eye-ear and nose specialist from Connecticut. Physiotherapist Eunice Ingham is credited with developing a system of reflex areas by 1938.
