Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands utilizing
specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil, cream,
It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of
the body on the feet and hands.

found in Egypt (2330 BC), China (2700 BC) and Japan (690 AD).
New reflexology began to emerge in the 19th century in Europe and Russia,
