Reflexology is based on the idea that energy flows around your body. The Chinese believe that if this energy is blocked, then the body gets sick.
In this foot massage, gentle pressure is applied to points on your feet, known as reflexes. This can help unblock any energy that is trapped.
It also has the belief that your feet contain a “map” of the entire body: every organ and body structure relates to a precise point on the top, side or sole of the foot.
For example, your brain is connected to the top of your big toe, while the bladder point is at the base of your heel.
The idea is that when an area of your body is out of balance, the related reflex will be tender to the touch.
This foot massage will gently work a tender point, which helps to break down deposits and restore energy flow through the zone. The massage action also has the effect of stimulating the circulation of your blood and lymph to the area and feels highly relaxing.
