Reflexology is based on the insight that every organ in the body has a specific corresponding area on the hands and feet with which it is connected via an energy meridian. We assume we are all-knowing. Instinctively, we push and rub the painful areas. By applying pressure, the reflex points are massaged. With thousands of years of knowledge to draw upon, reflexology evolved into a form of individual therapy in our modern day era, catering to a large spectrum of indications.
