Who Started Hand Reflexology?
Question: Hi Kevin & Barbara,
Just as everyone credits Eunice Ingham (along with Drs. Fitzgerald and Riley) in pioneering Foot Reflexology, who is credited with Hand Reflexology? Who mapped out the reflexes on the hand?
Answer: Hi Kathy
Good hearing from you.
I think Mildred Carter started hand reflexology on a larger scale. Her charts were more energy based like acupuncture. I don't know of anyone before her doing hand reflexology.
We took two years to map out a reiterative chart or mirroring the body on the hands. It wasn't easy. The hand is different than the foot in topography. But the chart was pretty well adopted by everyone.
All the best,
