Reflexology is the activation of specific points on the hands and feet to promote the proper functioning of the body. The idea behind reflexology is that the hands and feet are like condensed maps of the rest of the body; the head, torso, organs, legs and arms are all directly connected to specific areas of the hands and feet. By applying pressure to the areas which correspond to each other, other parts of the body are affected. For instance, using particular pressure massages on the tips of the fingers can relieve head and sinus problems. A trained professional in reflexology can even pinpoint issues in the body by feeling the tension in your hands and feet.
