Reflexology is a type of holistic therapy that consists of pressing points called reflexes.
These points can be found on your feet, face, hands and ears. Each one of these is connected to a specific organ or part of the body. Pressing these points improves the function of these organs, stimulates the nervous system and increases circulation. Reflexology goes back to the old ages. It was used by ancient Egyptians and the Chinese.
In the 1930s there was a revival of this method. It was spread by Eunice Ingham. After some time, she opened the first school that specialized in reflexology education. The woman dedicated forty years of her life researching and promoting this therapy. Recently reflexology of the ear has become very popular. The point is to squeeze certain points using a clothespin.
