What is Reflexology ?
Reflexology stimulates the skin in the most innervation areas that are located in the body limbs (feet, hands, head, face, skull, ears) to get a distance organ nervous reaction of the stimulated area. These areas are called ‘reflex zone’.
Reflexology has existed for millenniums and was practiced by various civilizations such as Egyptian, Chinese, Hindu, Incas, Indio’s of America…
At the end of 19th Century, In Great Britain Sir Henry Head and Sir Mackensie created a theory called the ‘The Head zones’ in which they design the connection mapping between skin segments and intern organs. In Germany, Dr. Alfons Cornelius discovers that massaging a painful area (called pressure zone) enables releasing other parts of the body.
Dr William H. Fitzgerald discovers that a pressure made on an area of the hand or foot leads to anesthetize some of the body zones. Dr Fitzgerald establishes what we call ‘the zone therapy’ : divides the body in 10 longitudinal zones (5 on the right hand side, 5 on the left hand side) that end either on a finger or on a toe. These zones are the foundations of the current reflexology maps. Dr Fitzgerald passes on his knowledge to the physician Joe Shelby Riley who practices that same technic on the toes.
In the 30’s,the kinesitherapist Eunice Ingham participates in Dr. Riley’s researches. She studies again the Theory and improves it concentrating her researches on the feet. She locates each organ on the feet after working on thousands of cases at the St Petersburg hospital in Tampa, Florida. hospital. She created the mapping we know nowadays.
