Join Us: Research Proving the Concept of Reflexology


Join Us: Research Proving the Concept of Reflexology

Imagine it’s 2323 BCE and a pictograph of reflexology is being carved into the Physician’s Tomb in Saqqara Egypt. 

Imagine a few thousand years later and it’s 32 BCE. Mark Anthony is being criticized by historian Ovid for working on the feet of Cleopatra at a dinner party.

Imagine today and 21st century technology is being used to prove the reflexology concept that’s been around for thousands of years.

Research is being launched using fMRI brain imaging to prove the concept of reflexology. “Neural Pathways of Applied Reflexology” will study what happens in the brain and spinal cord as reflexology is applied.

We seek to raise US$150,000 to fund the study. Join us as we seek to move into the future an idea that lives in the hearts and minds of millions around the world and throughout history. Here’s your chance to join the reflexology revolution, becoming a part of those who believe in reflexology and its use in health, wellness and medicine.

The research will be lead by Dr. Stefan Posse, internationally recognized neuroscientist at the University of New Mexico (UNM) Medical School’s Human Brain Imaging Research Laboratory. ( Internationally recognized reflexology authorities Barbara and Kevin Kunz will provide the reflexology knowledge and application. All three are volunteering their efforts. All donations will be administered by the non-profit UNM Foundation. (

Study participants will have reflexology applied to a specific reflex area of their feet as real time fMRI imaging records what happens in the brain and in the spinal cord. Neuroscientists will then assess the resulting images to determine which parts of the participants’ brains and spinal cords respond to the stimulation of reflexology. In a second clinical phase of the research, the same procedure will be followed with study participants who experience a specific health concern.

Imagine: we could be able to peer inside the brain and spinal cord to map reflexology’s path in the body, continuing a trail from humankind’s past into its future. What treasures might we find? Where could new discoveries lead?
