Reflexologists use reflex points in your feet that correspond to different body organs and systems, and pressing them creates real benefits for your health. For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of your foot corresponds to the bladder. When a reflexologist uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it may affect bladder functioning.
Reflexologists use foot maps to guide their work. The left foot corresponds to the organs found on the left side of the body and the right foot to the organs on the right side.
Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure disease, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS and sinusitis.
