Reflexology is the practice of manual therapies in various forms and their application of different parts of the body including face, hands and feet dates back to over 3,000 years, ago primarily in the studies of Egyptian, African and Aboriginal cultures as well as their mythologies.
The origins of Reflexology evidently reach back to at least 2500 BC in ancient Egypt as evidenced by inscriptions found in the physician’s tomb at Saqqara in Egypt. The translation of the hieroglyphics is as follows: “Don’t hurt me.” The practitioner’s reply: – “I shall act so you praise me.”
