Reflexology is the practice of stimulating points on the feet, hands, or ears to improve general health. The most common form is foot reflexology.
The foot is divided into a number of reflex zones corresponding to all parts of the body. Applying pressure to tight or “gritty” areas of a person’s foot will stimulate the corresponding body part and cause it to begin healing itself.
The technique is both old and new. From ancient illustrations we know that the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Russians and Egyptians worked on the feet to promote good health. Today many of the same techniques have been developed into a modern scientific method called reflexology.
