Julie G Greensmith is a registered Reflexologist, who has been working in the field of complementary medicine since 1988.
Reflexology works on a system of zones and reflex areas on the hands, feet, ears and face. The whole of the body is mapped out on these areas. The most effective form of reflexology works on the reflexes of the feet. The reflexologist applies pressure with fingers and thumbs to these specific points to stimulate the energy flow to the parts of the body these areas represent. This can promote health in the corresponding organs through energetic pathways.
A scientific explanation is that the pressure may send signals that balance the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce pain and stress. Most people find reflexology to be very relaxing.
