In the 1930's Eunice Ingham (1889-1974) further developed foot reflexology through her research. For the first time correlationship was looked at between the anatomical structure of the body and the energy zones located on the foot.

Eunice Ingham discovered that pressure applied to specific reflex points on the feet could help to relieve pain. She went on to publish her findings in two well-known books, "Stories the feet can tell"(1938) and "Stories the feet have told"(1963). Eunice Ingham gave reflexology a new face. Her theories are still studied today and form much of the basis of reflexology. She later became recognized as "The father of Modern Reflexology".
