Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is the practice of utilizing pressure points in the feet, hands and ears to affect other parts of the body. William H. Fitzgerald, an ear, nose and throat doctor in 1913, introduced the idea of using pressure points to alleviate pain in different areas. It wasn't until the 1930s and '40s when a nurse named Eunice D. Ingham mapped out the body into reflexes on the hands and feet, hence the name reflexology. Though there is no clinical or scientific evidence that reflexology actually works, many people in cultures around the world have experienced its benefits.
