Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflex points on the feet, outer ears and hands that are actually “reflections” of body parts. Like acupressure, reflexology utilizes pressure on certain points to stimulate the organs and glands.
The scientific basis to Reflexology begins in the last century. In the 1890's knighted research scientist and medical doctor, Sir Henry Head demonstrated the neurological relationship that exists between the skin and the internal organs. Nobel prize winner, Sir Charles Sherrington proved that the whole nervous system and body adjusts to a stimulus when it is applied to any part of the body. Around the same time in Germany, Dr. Alfons Cornelius observed pressure to certain spots triggered muscle contractions, changes in Blood pressure, variation in warmth and moisture in the body as well as directly affecting the 'physic processes', or mental state of the patient. The Russians, beginning with Drs Ivan Pavlov and Vladimir Bekhterev, have also been exploring reflex responses in the body for nearly a century.
In the last 30 years, because of Eunice Inghams traveling around the country teaching groups of people her method of reflexology (the Ingham Method) a grassroots following of reflexology emerged in the US. In that time practicing reflexologists have emerged, more than 30 reflexology books have been published, and the number of magazine articles published has risen by 500 percent since 1982. Television appearances by reflexologists have increased by 500 percent since 1988.
