What is reflexology? According to Dr. Andrew Weil, it is a healing therapy that works with points on the feet and hands which can affect the health of the body. These pressure points in our hands and feet are connected with other parts of the body. Through the application of pressure on particular areas of the hands or feet, reflexology promotes health and relaxation of tension, improvement of circulation, and support of normalized function in the related area in the body. Current scientific studies by Dr. J. Manzanares, MD have been able to establish the nervous system is the main mechanism for reflexology.
