Reflexology entails the manipulation of the hands, ears or most commonly the feet to promote health and wellbeing. Areas of the hands, ears and feet are thought to be linked with and represent other areas of the body. By stimulating these reflexology zones in the hands feet and ears it is thought that the reflexology practitioner can affect the corresponding areas of the body. See the chart below:

 

To affect the different areas of the body a reflexologist will stimulate these areas with the fingers and thumbs. Depending on the desired outcome of a treatment the practitioner will stimulate these points with different techniques and in a certain order.

 

The theories of reflexology are similar to other theories found in alternative therapies, such as those of Chinese acupressure. It is believed that blockages in the flow of energy throughout the body are reflected by blockage in the corresponding reflexology zones, for example, the feet. This causes the creation of crystals in these areas and when they are manipulated the patient will experience some pain – reflexology is therefore considered to be a treatment and a diagnosis. When the affected areas, for example, of the feet are treated the energy blockages are dissolved in the corresponding areas of the body via the nerve pathways.
