What Is Reflexology?

  • Reflexology is defined as a calm and soothing massage of the pressure points of the feet. Its basic principle is that the pressure points of the feet correspond to different organs and that through the feet the entire body can be balanced and harmonized.
  • The correspondence between the feet and organs is presumed to rely on meridians, a system of energy lines extending throughout the whole body, from head to foot. This system is the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine and also is used in shiatsu and acupuncture.
  • Massaging pressure points on the feet also creates a stimulation of the nervous system that may have soothing effects of its own.
