Reflexology is the art or science that believes there are reflex areas in our feet, hands and ears that correspond to every part of our body, including our organs and glands. When you stimulate the reflex areas in the feet, by applying pressure with your fingers, thumbs and hands, you directly affect the corresponding areas, glands or organs of the body. Remember when you are working with your right foot or hand you are working the right side of the body and when you are working with your left foot or hand you are working the left side of the body.
This applied pressure also affects the energy flow of the body and can be used to release energy blockages throughout the body. Inhibiting the flow of energy in the body can lead to pain and disease. Reflexology and accupressure are similar in the fact that they both work with the energy flow of the body and they both use points or areas on one part of the body to affect points or areas located in other parts of the body. Can you believe that there are actually 7,200 nerve endings in one foot and reflexologists utilize these nerve endings to benefit the whole body. The opening up of the body's energy flow through Relfexology or Zone Therapy works with the body's own intelligence, allowing the body to begin its healing process and progress at the body's own pace.
