Accurate Pressure Points
Around the world and throughout history reflexology has been rediscovered and reinstated as a health practice by cultures seeking to improve their health. Because reflexology is an ancient practice, its origin and history is difficult to track. However, reflexology is thought to have been passed down through an oral tradition, and possibly first recorded as a pictograph on the Egyptian tomb of Ankhamor infeet imprints 2330 BC along with other medical procedures.
In addition to Egypt, Archeological evidence from Korea & China (704 BCE) and Japan (690 CE) points to ancient reflexology medical systems. In the 1300s, Marco Polo translated a Chinese massage book into Italian, thus introducing reflexology and massage to Europe. In 1582, Dr. Adamus and Dr. A'tatis published a book on an integral element of reflexology called zone therapy in Europe. The practice of reflexology began to emerge in the West in the 19th century, based on research into the nervous system and reflexes. While no direct evidence of direct cross-fertilization from ancient times has been discovered, the practice of foot and hand work in a variety of cultures, belief systems and historical periods speaks to reflexology for health as a universal bridging concept.
In the United States, William H. Fitzgerald, MD (frequently referred to as the father of reflexology) wrote about ten vertical zones in 1917. These zones extended the length of the body. His research suggest the application of pressure to a zone that related to the location of an injury would serve as pain relief during minor surgeries.
