The concept of Reflexology has been around for a very long time. There is evidence that it can be traced back as far as 2330 BC. It was first established by the Egyptian, Chinese and Indian cultures.
In 1917 Dr. William Fitzgerald, introduced a form of this therapy to the west. He believed that pressure points to a specific region of the body could have an anesthetizing effect to another region of the body. He termed this techniques as “Zone Therapy.” He divided the body into 5 zones on each side. He concluded that pressure in one part of a zone can affect a different region of that same zone.
