Reflexology is a science that maps out the reflexes on the feet and hands to all the organs and the rest of the body. By applying acupressure and massage like techniques to the feet and hands the body can be brought back into its homeostasis or balance.
Reflexology has its origins in ancient Egypt, China and India. In the ancient texts of China and India, reference is made to working areas of the feet.
