Reflexology is based on the idea that each of the body’s organs and glands are “linked” to corresponding areas of ears, hands and feet. Applying pressure on these points results in the energy being restored to the body which helps in strengthening of the immune system and in the natural healing system of the body functioning effectively.

In zone therapy, a reflexology chart shows the reflex zones found on the soles of the feet. Similar maps exist for the position of the reflexes on the hands.

The representation of the color codes are as follows:

Side effects of Reflexology

Because reflexology is intended to normalize the body functions, the therapy does not cause a condition to worsen.

Benefits of Reflexology

Reflexology promotes healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging the flow of blood. In the process, reflexology not only quells the sensation of pain, but relieves the source of the pain as well.
