Reflexology dates back to the times of the Egyptian Pharaohs as depicted in art that was found in the tombs of several Pharaohs.
Upon discovery of a pictograph of work on feet and hands by Ed Case, at a display from the Tomb of the Physician Ankhmahor at the Papyrus Institute in Cairo in 1980, has served as a pictorial statement of ancient roots for almost a generation of reflexologists.The statement about foot work during the reign of Cleopatra may indicate foot work was practiced during the entire ancient Egyptian civilization. The Tomb of Ankhmahor dates from 2400 B. C. and Cleopatra lived from 69 B. C. to 30 B. C. She is called the "last pharaoh." A question of whether or not foot work has been practiced continuously throughout human history or whether it has cycled around from time to time is unknown? The report of foot treatment through Cleopatra's lifetime adds to the possibility that it has been practiced continuously throughout the two thousand years of Egyptian history.
The existence and practice of foot and hand work in ancient times lends much credence to the fact that Reflexology has a reason and a purpose. Like all things in life, what may work for one person may not work for another. Chiropractic does not work for all back issues, but neither does back surgery or pain clinics.One pharmaceutical may work for one person and not another yet Western medicine is more than willing to do trial and error with them.
We are all individuals with different body makeup. Therefore, each profession, treatment, or medication is worth a try to find the needed relief that we seek; unless the side effects out weigh the potential benefits of such treatments. Human touch is wonderful and especially wonderful when it has long reaching effects.
