Reflexology originates from practices of healers in Egypt, Greece and China used more than 4000 years ago. It is a specialised form of massage of the feet, stimulating reflexes that can affect all parts of the body.
The massage is meant to unblock energy channels to restart or improve the flow of energy to specific parts of the body, thus promoting the process of natural healing.
Research has shown that reflexology was also known to some primitive, African tribes, the Red Indians, and early Egyptians. It was rediscovered in the early 1920s by an American ear, nose and throat consultant, Dr William Fitzgerald, who found that by applying pressure to a certain area of the foot he was able to anaesthetise the ear. His findings attracted the attention of others and eventually a nurse by the name of Eunace Ingham became a pioneer in the field in America. One of her students, Doreen Baily, returned to England in the early 1960s to introduce the methods to this country.
