Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body.
Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance.
Reflexology is a serious advance in the health field and should not be confused with massage.
Reflexotherapy is treatment by irritation of an area of the body distant from a lesion.
It usually consists of using the hands to apply gentle pressure to the feet in order to ease pain, relieve tension, and restore energy.
The term can also be applied to applying pressure to specific points on the hands and ears.
