Reflexology

Reflexology is the application of pressure to specific points and areas on the feet or hands (even ears). Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems and that pressing them creates lasting benefits for the person’s health.

For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder. When a reflexologist uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it may affect bladder functioning.

 

Reflexology foot maps

Reflexologists use foot maps to guide their work. The left foot corresponds to the organs found on the left side of the body and the right foot to the organs on the right side.

Here are some examples of reflex areas and their corresponding body parts:

  • The tips of the toes reflect the head
  • The heart and chest are around the ball of the foot
  • The liver, pancreas, and kidney are in the arch of the foot
  • Low back and intestines are towards the heel

 

What does reflexology do?

Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure disease, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issuesdiabetesheadaches, kidney function, PMS, and sinusitis.
