Reflexology Today, The Modern Science

Today Reflexology has evolved to become an exciting natural healing and wellness alternative thanks in large part to the pioneering work of Eunice D. Ingham, a Physical Therapist who worked closely with Dr. Riley who was initially fascinated by the concept of Zone Therapy.

Ingham started developing her foot reflex theory in the early 1930's which has since evolved into the highly acclaimed, and formal, Ingham Method® of Reflexology,

The Ingham Method is recognized around the world for the effectiveness of its advanced techniques and natural healing benefits.

The Ingham Reflexology vs. Zone Therapy

Zone Therapy relies solely on the zones to determine area to be worked, whereas the Ingham Method of Reflexology considers the zones as well as the anatomical model to determine the area or areas to be worked.
