Reflexology is a style of massage that involves stimulating acupressure points on the feet. This type of massage has been done for thousands of years. It is based on the science of meridians, which is the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine. According to this science, their are points on the feet that correspond to every part of our body, from our muscles to our organs.
Even if you have never heard of acupressure points or meridians, the basis of reflexology seems to make sense. How many times have we been on our feet all day and felt fatigue throughout our bodies. Well, when a person receives reflexology, they feel relief throughout the body, not just the feet.
I had my first reflexology treatment about 8 years ago and I was amazed by the power of this bodywork. I felt like I had received a full body massage. In fact, there was a pain in my neck prior to the session that disappeared after my reflexology session. It was amazing.
Here is a chart of the reflex points in the feet. The way you stimulate the points are by adding pressure to the respective area.
