History of reflexology


Ancient history indicates that reflexology was originally practised in Egypt, India and China. Around 2330BC the tomb of Ankhmahor was built in Egypt and a wall painting, thought to show men ptactising reflexology on feet, can still be seen in the pyramid. The tomb belonged to an Egyptian physician who was second only to the king. The inscription is thought to read, 'Don't hurt me', and the practicioner replies, 'I shall act so you praise me'.

Taken from Francesca Gould's 'Reflexology for holistic therapists' which I strongly recommend to those interested in learning about reflexology as a good base point.
