Reflexology is a type of therapy that uses gentle pressure on specific points along your feet, which correspond to all of the body’s glands, organs, and systems. Properly stimulating these reflexes can normalize the body’s natural balance by easing tension and improving nerve function and blood supply. It’s also known as zone therapy.
The way reflexology connects spots on the outside of your body to the inside is like acupuncture or acupressure. But those therapies use points all over your body, not just on your feet, hands, and ears.
