Reflexology

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a form of bodywork that focuses primarily on the feet. How does reflexology work?

Reflexology is the application of pressure techniques to the hands and feet to affect another part of the body. These techniques stimulate pressure sensors, triggering relaxation response throughout the body. Reflexology encourages good health, promoting relaxation, easing pain, preventing disease and improving quality of life.

The theory underlying reflexology is called Zone Theory. It is similar to the concept of meridians in acupuncture. Just as meridians link one part of the body with another, so a combination of zone charts and maps connects the hands and feet to the organs and structures of the body.

The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are “reflex” areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. For example: 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.

He believed that certain areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body. A scientific explanation is that the pressure may send signals that balance the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce pain and stress.
