“If you’re feeling out of kilter
Don’t know why or what about
Let your feet reveal the answer
Find the sore spot work it out”
– Eunice D Ingham, founder of the Ingham method
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes with thumb and finger techniques can help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance.
Reflexology is a serious advance in the health field. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), reflexology is one of the fastest growing therapies in North America today.
Victoria had the privilege of learning directly from Dwight Byers (Eunice’s nephew) and James Pederson (Dwight’s grandson).
Is Reflexology Massage?
Reflexology involves the use of applied precise alternating pressure techniques therapeutically on the reflex areas of the glands, organs, and parts of the body located on the feet and hands.
There are 7,200 nerve endings in each foot and 2,500 in each hand.

A very positive experience for me.
My reflexology sessions with Victoria contributed to a reduction of the foot pain I was experiencing. As importantly, Victoria’s dedication, knowledge and focus on helping her clients, as well as her friendly personality made this a very positive experience for me.
The History of Reflexology
Reflexology was practiced as early as 2330 B.C. by the Egyptian culture. Depictions of reflexology have been found on the walls within Egyptian pyramids, with the translation of a wall painting found in the physicians tomb reads: “Don’t hurt me”. The practitioners reply: “I shall act so you praise me”.
Reflexology as we know it today was first researched and developed by Eunice Ingham, the pioneer in this field. Her book on the subject was published in 1938.
Eunice’s work and methods have been copied by some, but the dedication to her original method lives on in the work of the I.I.R.
Today there are seminars and courses in many parts of the world. Her books are read in seven languages in the world.
