We also do Reflexology, but only with a Reiki session, usually the last 10 minutes on the feet.

Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.

Where are the Reflexology points and areas?

In reflexology theory, points and areas on the feet, hands and ears correspond to specific organs, bones and body systems . Practitioners access these points on the feet and hands (bottom , sides and top) and ears(both inside as far as the finger can reach and outside) to affect organs and systems throughout the entire body.

Maps of reflex points have been passed between practitioners across the globe. Understandably, there is not agreement among all reflexologists on all points: however, general agreement does on major reflex points. Some Scientific documentation of linkages between the skin and the internal organs also exists.

To represent how the body systems correspond to one another, reflexologists use reflexology “maps”.
A good example of a reflexology map exists for the feet.

Reflexology Chart

Each foot represents a vertical half of the body.

Left foot corresponds to the left side of the body and all organs, valves, etc found there.

Right foot corresponds to the right side of the body and all organs found there.
Whatever the approach, the reflexologist attempts to release congestion or stress in the nervous system and balance the body’s energy.
