Reflexology is a form of complementary’ medicine and involves a method of treatment using massage to reflex areas found in the feet and the hands. Most commonly, the feet are used as the areas to be treated. The method has been used for several thousands of years and is known to have been practiced in a similar manner by the Chinese and the Egyptians. In the feet, there are reflex areas corresponding to all the parts of the body and these areas are arranged in such a way as to form a map of the body in the feet. Reflexology encourages the body to rebuild its energy resources and recover from illness and disease. After one or two sessions of reflexology, most people feel an improved sense of wellbeing and experience a feeling of deep relaxation.
