Is foot massage where pressure is applied to the reflex points on the feet.
It is based on assumptions by William Fitzgerald who, in the early twentieth century, postulated that the body is divided into ten vertical zones, each represented by part of the foot. Fitzgerald developed maps of the soles of the feet showing which areas correspond to which inner organs.
Reflexologists will take a medical history and then manually investigate the foot. If they feel a resistance in one area they are likely to diagnose a problem with the corresponding organ. The therapy then consists of a high-pressure massage at this point, which is believed to repair the function of the troubled organ and ultimately to improve the patient’s health or prevent illness.
Other benefits of reflexology include relaxation, reduced stress and improved blood circulation.
