Reflexology, also called zone therapy, is an alternative treatment, consisting of applying pressure to the feet or hands, without the use of lotions or oils. Reflexologists claim the methodology is based on zones and reflex areas that reproduce a picture of our bodies on our hands and feet, producing physical changes when these zones are treated with pressure.
There’s no comprehensive agreement amongst reflexologists on how reflexology should really function. The unifying idea is that certain areas on the base of the feet can be manipulated with pressure to improve the qi (energy) in our body, which subsequently improves our health. According to reflexology, the body is divided into 10 equal zones vertically – with 5 zones on the left side and the other 5 zones on the right.
These zones are reflected on every organ and gland of the body. By applying pressure on the zones with nothing else than the fingers and hands, tension and circulation is improved and the related areas of the body are relieved and affected naturally.
One of the most effective for your feet, this massage was originated in ancient China and has been used more than 3000 years.
