Reflexology is the application of gentle pressure and massage to reflex points located on all parts of the feet. It is based on the belief that these reflex points relate to and mirror the internal organs, glands and structures of the body. The goal of the reflexology is to stimulate those points and break down any crystal deposits located in the feet, hands or ears to restore normal function to that body system. Pressure on the feet can therefore affect the functioning of the body and encourage the healing process to begin.
Reflexology involves stimulating the nerve connections in the sole of the foot or hands to balance and restore energy to various organs in the body. It works on the principle that there are areas on the feet and hands which correspond to the major glands and organs of the body. By using pressure on a specific area of the foot, an effect will be stimulated on the corresponding area of the body.
