Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands or ears. Reflexologists believe that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person’s general health. Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, it is used around the world to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS and sinusitis.
To represent how the body systems correspond to one another, reflexologists use reflexology “maps.” Reflexology maps are based on the concept that the ear, foot or hand are connected to all the other parts of the body through the nervous system or “energy” system and thus become a reflection or snapshot of the entire body. In the case of the feet, the left foot corresponds to the left side of the body and all organs, valves etc. found there. The right foot corresponds to the right side of the body and all organs found there. For example, the liver is on the right side of the body and therefore the corresponding reflex area is on the right foot.

The techniques for stimulating the various pressure points vary. In a professional approach to reflexology, acupuncture uses a needle inserted and manipulated to stimulate the pressure point. Some therapists use magnets and, of course, massage. All of the techniques under the “Reflexology” umbrella use manual pressure on various points to promote stimulation. This is something you can do yourself! Take a look at the “maps,” locate the site that needs attention and then carry on to heal yourself or anyone else. You are now a reflexologist!
