He has been called "father of Nordic Reflexology",[1][not in citation given] and "father of modern reflexology".[2][not in citation given]


Unfortunately, most of Karl Axel Linds writings and drawings were only distributed to his students as teaching material. These materials do not stand as independent work, but were tightly tied to his oral presentation of it. The only written sources for his teaching are the writings of people who were authorized by him to teach his system. These include Anna-Kaarina Lind,[3] Siv E Harestad[4] and Arve Fahlvik.[5]

Other known writings are in the Finnish language:

Vyöhyketerapia ja refleksologia terveyden tukena. 2001, Tampere Finland, Cityoffset OY.[6]

Vyöhyketerapia ja refleksologia koliikkivauvan hoid on tukena. 2008, Tampere Finland, Kopio Niini.[7]

Karl Axel Lind gave speeches on the following occasions:

Third European Conference of Reflexology, Tampere, Finland, 1998. Organized by Reflexology in Europe Network.

AGM of Norske Naturterapeuters Hovedorganisasjon, Stavanger, Norway, 2004.

He received honorary membership[8] in Norske Naturterapeuters Hovedorganisasjon.

He got media coverage in the magazine Allers[9] and was mentioned in the book Alternativmedicin: Alternativa terapier i Sverige.[10]
