WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?

According to the INTERNATIONAL INSTITUE OF REFLEXOLOGY (2001) “REFLEXOLOGY is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems, in a natural way, and therefore act as a type of preventative maintenance. REFLEXOLOGY is a serious advancement in the health field and should not be confused with massage. The idea behind REFLEXOLOGY is not new – in fact, it was practiced as early as 2330 B.C. by the Egyptian culture. Reflexology as we know it today was first researched and developed by Eunice Ingham, the pioneer in this field. Her book on the subject was published in 1932. The book is the combined work of the late Eunice Ingham and her nephew Dwight C. Byers, the world’s leading authority on Foot and Hand Reflexology. The Ingham Method of REFLEXOLOGY is used primarily for relaxing tension. Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension. REFLEXOLOGY improves nerve and blood supply, and helps nature to normalize. REFLEXOLOGY is a unique modality in the health field. Its purpose is not to treat or diagnose for any specific medical disorder, but to promote better health and well-being in the same way as an exercise or diet program. Its practice should not be compared to massage or any other kind of manipulative procedure.”
