Reflexotherapy (aka Reflexology) is an ancient, drug-free method of treatment used to alleviate pain and promote healing. It is based today on a system of body zones and topical reflex areas that reflect an image (microsystem) of the body on the feet, hands, ears, nose, etc., with the observation that topical stimulation and massage effects a physical change to the internal body for the betterment.

Most reflexologists posit that the blockage of an energy field, invisible life force, or Qi, can prevent healing. Stimulation in the form of massage and pressure relieves these blockages. Another tenet of reflexology is the belief that practitioners can relieve stress and pain in other parts of the body through the manipulation of the nerves of the feet, some ten thousand nerve endings on each foot. Another explanation is that the pressure received in the feet or hands can send signals that 'balance' the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce stress and pain. All explanations have their merits.

Various versions of reflexology have been practiced since time immemorial. This has been documented on four continents: Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America. The most common theory is that the earliest form of reflexology originated in China, as much as 5000 years ago by the use of stone needles, a precursor to the development of acupuncture. The early Taoists are described as having originated many Chinese health practices.

The Cherokee tribes of North America and the Inca Indians practiced a form of reflexology that they pass from generation to generation.

Reflexology traveled across India, Japan, and China. Traditional East Asian foot reflexology is called Zoku Shin Do in Japanese. This is the foot portion of the Japanese massage technique. The roots of Zoku Shin Do also go back to China over 5000 years ago.

The modern version of today's reflexology was introduced to the United States in 1913 by William H. Fitzgerald, M.D. (1872–1942), an ear, nose, and throat specialist, and Dr. Edwin Bowers. Fitzgerald demonstrated that applying pressure had an anesthetic effect on other areas of the body. Reflexology was further modified in the 1930s and 1940s by Eunice D. Ingham (1889–1974), a nurse and physiotherapist. Ingham claimed that the feet and hands were especially sensitive, and mapped the entire body into "reflexes" on the feet. It was at this time that "zone therapy" was renamed reflexology. Reflexologists in the United States and the United Kingdom often study Ingham's theories first, although there are also more recently created methods.


Reflexotherapy is a natural and ancient, metaphysical healing art based on the principle that there are specific reflexes in the feet, hands, ears and other locations which their referral areas correspond to every part, gland and organ in the body. Most familiar to everyone is Chinese Acupuncture. Through application of pressure, essential oils, herbs, needles, and minerals on these reflexes, the health is thereby modulated. Spiritual development of these systems down through the ages has lead to using crystals, gems, and precious metals as well. The Egyptians used essential oils. Native Americans have been using hot stones since ancient times as part of a hot stone massage treatment in their sweat lodge ceremonies. There is also evidence of the use of hot stones in many other ancient civilizations such as Egypt, China, Japan, Africa, South America, Australia and the Polynesian islands. The feet and back being the primary areas of application, however other reflexes were found by the Oriental cultures.

Reflexotherapy relieves tension both bodily and psychic, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body's organs.


The author has developed electronically assisted massage whereby frequency specific waveforms are applied through the probes while performing massage reflexology on the hands, feet, back, face and scalp. Blockages of the nerves are associated with crystalline deposits in the body's fascia, what reflexologists call the "chrunchies," and massage is aimed towards dissolving these mineral deposits. Electrical stimulation further assists in dissolving these deposits by electrolysis. Frequencies further add to tone and tune the body as what is used in is the audio range of the human ear.

Further, a device has been in use for over twenty years wherein gemstones are electronically vibrated in addition to delivering frequency specific waveforms, thus it is called a SOUND•COLOR•GEM frequency generator.
