Reflexology is a 20th century version of an ancient healing and relaxing technique. Reflexologists maintain that the feet are a map of the rest of the body. By applying pressure to certain parts of the feet, a reflexologist can ease the pain and tension and restore the balance of energy throughout the body. Individual reference points or reflex areas on the foot correspond to all major organs, glands and parts of the body. Applying pressure to a specific area of the foot stimulates the movement of energy to the corresponding body part.

Reflexology Like most Eastern healing arts, reflexology aims to release the flow of energy throughout the body along the various meridians. When this energy is trapped for some reason, illness can result. When the energy is released, the body can begin to heal itself.
