History of Reflexology

 

This is Lee’s speciality!

It is thought that the earliest form of reflexology originated in China, as much as 5000 years ago. Other cultures also lay claim to its development including the indigenous Aboriginals of Australia, the American Indians and the Egyptians.

The basis of modern reflexology can be traced back to the early part of the 20th Century when it formulated in the United States by Dr William Fitzgerald. The therapy was further developed by Eunice Ingham who had studied his works.

Doreen Bayly studied with Ingham and brought reflexology across the Atlantic in the 1960s. In the UK, there are a number of teachers who learnt and developed Bayly’s approach to reflexology.

One of these teachers is Lee Anthony Taylor.
