Reflexology is a system of massage on the feet used to relieve tension and treat illness. This treatment is based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head linked to every part of the body.

Reflexology follows a map of certain points on the feet that directly correlate to point on the body. Can be compared to a reflection of the body. Their locations and placements on the feet follow an anatomical pattern which closely resemble that of the body. By using acupressure and specific pressure techniques these unbalanced areas of the body can be encouraged back to regain a sense of homeostasis or balance within the body. Certain ailments of the body causing pain, discomfort and a sense of misalignment can be manipulated specifically in a reflexology treatment.
