History of Reflexology

history of reflexology artifact

The roots of reflexology date back over 4,000 years.  It is commonly associated with ancient Chinese culture, but actually can be traced back even further to biblical Egypt during the reign of the pharaoh Ankhamor. (2300 BC).

In China, mention of a form of reflexology first appeared in the Zhou Dynasty (circa 1000 BC) in a manual, The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine and was the first reference to its connection of life forces to specific areas of the foot.

Today’s modern reflexology is practiced throughout the world and still used to stimulate various areas of the body from specific points in the feet.    Tao Foot Spa makes no medical claims, but customers do report a sense of overall calmness and tension relief.  Plus, who doesn’t enjoy a good foot massage.

Experience the unique pleasures of reflexology at Tao Foot Spa in downtown Boca Raton, Florida.  Indulge yourself.
