Reflexology was first documented as originating in China 5,000 years ago. Reflexology was introduced to the U.S. in 1913 by a Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist named William H. Fitzgerald, M.D. and a Dr. Edwin Bowers. They believed applying pressure to the feet had an anesthetic effect on other areas of the body. About 15 years later a nurse and physiotherapist, Eunice D. Ingham mapped the entire body into reflexes on the feet. This was the creation of the Zone Theory. The Zone Theory maps the foot into various zones that correlate with the other organs throughout the body. Since then Reflexology has been developed into it’s own practice for holistic healing. Massage Therapists can take continuing education on Reflexology and implement it into their Massages. Reflexology can take 30 minutes or more, so it can be an add on during a hour or hour and a half Massage, or you can come in for a full Reflexology treatment. During a Reflexology Massage finger pressure is applied to points on the foot while the client practices deep breathing. If the client is interested he or she can ask what points the Massage Therapist is working on. Often soreness in a point shows the pain pattern the client is experiencing in other places of the body.
