Reflexology is a treatment based on the principle that there are areas/points on the feet, hands, and ears connected to the nervous system and corresponding areas of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas/points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels to help restore homeostasis balance in the body. When a body is out of "balance" and has poor energy flow, physical and emotion unrest can set in.
With approximately 7,000 nerve endings in the human foot andeach of them a reflex point that corresponds to a body part. Reflexologists use manipulations to stimulate these reflex points, knowing exactly which area of the foot corresponds to which body part.
