Did You Know Reflexology Was Rediscovered In The West By A Surgeon??


Did you know Reflexology was rediscovered in the west by a surgeon, Dr William Fitzgerald?

Dr William Fitzgerald

He was born in 1872 in the United States, and became a leading ear, nose and throat surgeon, working in Boston, London and Vienna.

He developed the concept of Zone Therapy while he was senior nose and throat surgeon in Connecticut.

 He observed while working that if he applied pressure over certain points of the toes, feet and other parts of the body, it caused a type of anaesthesia in a limited area. This enabled him to perform minor operations on the nose and throat without using cocaine and other local analgesics.

He went on to teach this technique to Dr Joseph Shelby-Riley and his wife Elizabeth who used this method in their practise for many years.
