There is much evidence throughout the world that massaging feet and hands for better health has been practiced over time:
Zone Therapy is the first 'western' study of reflexes in the feet and hands representing the vertical zones of the body from head to toe.
Dr. Shelby Riley ** worked for Dr. Fitzgerald and developed a map of horizontal zones going across the body and a detailed map of reflex points on the feet and hands. He also suggested pressure points on the outer ear which later became methodology for Ear Reflexology.
During the 1930's, Physiotherapist Eunice Ingham worked for Dr. Riley ** in Vermont, United States. Arguably, she is the reason for the world wide popularity of the practice. Her detailed map of reflexes identifies an image of the body.
Physiotherapist Eunice Ingham is the creator of the International Institute of Reflexology, was the author of the first papers and books on 'reflexology' and wrote three books about her observations. Ingham was the first person to identify the organs, glands and body parts represented as reflexes on all four side of the feet. She found and developed the foot maps and reflexology charts that are still in use today.
