Alternative medicine terms defined. Holistic health theories defined.
Reflexology Reflexology is the systematic, manual stimulation of the reflex maps located on the feet, hands and outer ears that resemble a shape of the human body. It is based on the premise that there are reflexes in our hands, feet and ears that relate to every organ and part of our body. Reflexology teaches that every part of the body has a direct line of communication to a reference point on the foot, hand and ear. By massaging these points, reflexologists help to restore nerve function and blood supply–aiding the corresponding body part to heal itself by stimulating energy in that area. Also see Tunia.
