How Does Foot Reflexology Work?

Foot reflexology is a holistic practice. It involves applying pressure to specific points on the feet, known as reflex points, which correspond to various organs, glands, and parts of the body via an energetic connection. By stimulating these points, the goal is to help with a wide variety of ailments and health concerns. 

For example, the toes may correspond with the head and brain, the ball of the foot with the diaphragm and arms, and the area of the foot between the ball and heel corresponds with the small intestine.
