Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy considered to be a form of ancient Chinese medicine involving treatment by massage of reflex areas found in the feet.
Based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body, with the right foot representing the right side of the body and the left foot representing the left side of the body. Every part of both feet corresponds to a part of the body. There are reflex areas on the soles of the foot, the top of the foot and on the sides of the foot and the reflex areas (reflexes) are arranged to form a map of the body in the feet. There are similar reflex areas found in the hands.
