What is the history of reflexology?
The roots of reflexology can be traced back to 4,500 years ago in Ancient Egypt where there are tomb illustrations that depict the use of medical techniques and what appears to be hand and foot reflexology.
In the modern context, Dr William Fitzgerald, an American laryngologist, published a book in 1917 called ‘Zone Therapy’ which set out the early practices of reflexology and this was further developed by other medical professionals who, through investigation, research and developing new techniques, have made reflexology what it is today.
