Proven Training Program From Introduction To Certified Reflexologist
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 and was initially fascinated by the concept of Zone Therapy.
Ingham started developing her foot reflex theory in the early 1930's that has since evolved into the Ingham Method® of Reflexology,
The Ingham Method is recognized around the world for its advanced techniques and natural healing benefits.
