The Worlds First Museum of Reflexology Honouring the life and work of Eunice Ingham
I heard from my great friend Ignacio Sanchez that he, in conjunction with Dwight Byers will be opening a museum of reflexology in the U.S. It will be based mainly on the life and work of Eunice Ingham (The Mother of Reflexology) Her nephew Dwight Byers has supplied all of her reflexology artefacts, most of which have never been seen before. The museum will chronicle the history of the development of reflexology up to and beyond the contribution which Eunice Ingham made.
The process of curating and cataloging all the many thousands of pictures and items relating to the history of Eunice and reflexology is going on at this time. I am also doing the same with the many hundreds of photos I have of my international travelling days with Dwight in the early 1970s through to 2009. Many of these will be included in the museum.
It will also have a section on the development of A.R.T.
I am honoured to have been made a member of the Executive Advisory Board.
There is a website which is being developed at this time, and as soon as this is up and running will be announced on the ART website.
The location of the Museum will initially be based in Hallandale, Florida, although
Ignacio tells me he has plans to Exhibit the contents of the museum in many countries throughout the world, including the U.K. So lets wait and see what transpires.
I have, over the years seen many of the exhibits, unpublished writings and books by Eunice Ingham and they do really make fascinating reading. They also reveal the legal battles she fought to continue to promote reflexology in those days.
As a sidenote - It is Dwight Byers 90th Birthday in February next year 2019! A big party is being arranged in St. Petersburg, Florida. Dwight still plays his beloved tennis and gives treatments.
My Best Wishes
