Reflexology involves the application of specific types of pressure and manipulation to points and areas located on all parts of the feet called reflexes. They relate to the structures, internal organs and tissues of the body in such a way that the body can be mapped directly onto the feet. Similar principles apply to the hands. It's an ancient therapy with roots in Chinese and Egyptian cultures but was revived and developed in the West in the late 19th century. Since that time, those leading the way have identified more detailed reflexes and developed enhanced techniques.
