The Evolution Of Zone Therapy

Zone Therapy Or Relieving Pain and Disease.

In Reflexology, the body is divided into ten zones, running vertically, up and down, through out the body.  This works out to five vertical sections on the right side of the body, and five vertical sections on the left side of the body.  Zone therapy uses light pressure applied to the feet, or hands. The process may result in increasing vitality or sedating pain.  This is determined by the health issues faced by a Client. A review of the history of Zone Therapy shows how this incredible healing modality evolved into Reflexology. A circle of dedicated doctors and medical professionals developed specific techniques to promote healing and  reverse disease.

No article about Reflexology would be complete without mention of  the prolific research of Eunice Ingham. Eunice Ingham was a  nurse and a physiotherapist. She  began Her career working  as a physiotherapist for Dr Joe Shelby Riley at  Riley’s School of Chiropractic. She received instruction directly from Elizabeth Ann Riley M.D.  Eunice Ingham studied Zone Therapy  extensively, and is responsible for renaming  the therapy “Reflexology.”  She was the first person to create a Foot Reflexology map. Eunice Ingham developed techniques for specific areas on the thyroid gland reflexes. She felt there was an important correspondence between health of the ovaries with the thyroid gland function. She referred to the thyroid gland as “the third ovary”. In 1938, Eunice Ingham published the book  “Stories the Feet Can Tell”.  This book documents Her research and Her methodology, “The Eunice Ingram Method”, Current day Reflexology is based on Her contribution and extensive  research of Zone Therapy and Reflexology.

Thanksgiving week creates the opportunity to cultivate gratitude. Focusing on the positive aspects of life creates a magnet. This force attracts more good.  What We focus on expands and increases. Life in itself is the biggest miracle of all. We are all here on the planet for a purpose. Discover  this purpose?  Take this time to align Your feelings, thoughts, emotions, words, and actions with clarity. People have become too busy to stop and take a break. Inner reflection is an important tool for self discovery. This Thanksgiving day take time out to create a list of one hundred things  the things You are grateful for. Set this list aside, but check it from time to time through out the year. Clear out clutter and donate what You are no longer using. Donate non perishable items to the  local food bank – Baby food and formula is always in high demand.
