Reflexology is a method of complementary therapy based on the application of special pressures and massages to the sole and back of the feet. Because there are 7,200 nerve endings in the sole, proponents of this method claim that these specialized pressures trigger a “reflex” stimulus at each point and organ of the body individually. When it can not apply to the feet, it applies on the hands.
A historical flashback
In 1913 the American Dr. William Fitzgerald, introduced the term ‘belt therapy’. A few years later, around 1930, Eunice Ingham created the first “reflexology maps” and introduced the term “Reflexology.” The oldest record of applying pressure to the extremes in order to have a positive effect on the body. It is in the book De Medicina Libri octo, by Aulus Cornelius Celsus. Influenced by the Greek doctors of the time, he writes, “More often, however, another member must be rubbed from where the pain is. Especially when we want to remove the” feces “from the head and chest, so we rub the hands and legs.
The first major European Union effort to lay the groundwork for research into complementary and alternative therapies with the Cambrella program began in early 2010. The program will run for 3 years and involve clubs, universities and research centers from various European countries. In 2017, the National European reflexology network launched a 10-year research program. Published research and studies on the influence of Reflexology as a complementary method of conventional medicine exist and even published in electronic medical libraries on the Internet where one can easily find them.
