Like acupuncture and acupressure, reflexology is an ancient Chinese practice that works on the principle that specific areas of the body contain energy points that link to major organs and functions in the body. In addition to helping to maintain health, reflexology can reduce pain, increase blood flow to targeted organs, and enhance mental well-being, among other benefits.
The process is fairly simple and requires no extra equipment. All you have to do is find the area of the hand that corresponds with the part of the body that you want to target for relief. For example, according to the chart, the tips of the fingers correlate with the head in case of a headache. Press that area with the thumb or massage it with a circular motion for 30 seconds to 1 minute. The motion can be repeated, and the more consistent it is practiced, the more benefits that will result.
