Reflexology is a natural and alternative method of healing your body. It is based on the principle that specific areas of your feet, hands and ears correspond to a gland or organ elsewhere in your body. Using specific techniques pressure is applied to these areas to help improve circulation and promote the natural function of the corresponding part of your body.
A reflexology chart acts as a map of your foot and is used to determine which part of the foot corresponds to which organ. Generally your right foot will impact the right side of your body and the left foot your left side. Starting with your toes are your sinuses and other parts of your head, as you move down your foot you move down your body with your heel corresponding to your tailbone. Your ankle and the tops of your feet and toes also have related organs.
Reflexology has many benefits, the main one being that it will reduce strain and discomfort throughout your entire body. The pressure applied to your feet generates relaxation and improves your body’s blood flow and circulation allowing your body to expel toxins and to operate more naturally and efficiently.
