Reflexology has its roots in antiquity. Evidence found in a Egyptian Tomb dated 2300BC indicate that these ancient people have discovered its healing power.
In modern times, the early 1900's, an American Dr William Fitzgerald developed the theory of there being 10 zones of energy pathways within the body which influence the internal organs. He described this a Zone Therapy.
This concept was developed further by a fellow American, a therapist, Eunice Ingham, who is regarded as the pioneer of Reflexology in its modern form.
It was introduced to Britain in the 1960's by one of students, Doreen Bayly, a former nurse. It is also taught and practised in many other countries
