Foot Reflexology: Healing through the Feet

Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands relative to every organ and all parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance. Reflexology is a serious advance in the health field and should not be confused with massage.

Background on Reflexology

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 of this field. Her first book on the subject was published in 1938. And, since 1942, Reflexology seminars have been conducted year round.

What is the Original Ingham Method?

It is the combined work of the late Eunice Ingham and her nephew Dwight C. Byers, the world’s leading authority on Foot Reflexology. Mr. Byers, director of the International Institute of Reflexology, conducts annual seminars on a worldwide scale to both laymen and professionals.

What Does Reflexology Do?

The Original 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. Reflexology improves nerve and blood supply and may help many health problems and prevent certain illnesses from manifesting.

Is Special Equipment Needed?

Only the hands are used, making it a safe, simple, yet effective method without the use of gadgets. Let your fingers do the walking.

Can Reflexology Make a Condition Worse?

No, it will not make any condition more acute. Foot Reflexology helps nature to normalize body functions. A Foot Reflexology series relaxes the stress that can affect your health. It is a safe, effective way to better health.
