Reflexology uses reflexive therapy to clear the congestion of toxic deposits that inhibit the flow of energy throughout the body. It uses compression techniques and massage that stimulate corresponding reflexes. Your neck reflex is found on the “necks” of all of your five toes on each foot. If you have tension in an area of your neck, tension, or discomfort, you will be able to feel that congestion when the massage therapist works on the corresponding area of the necks of your toes. Your head reflexes lie in your big toes.
So your two feet represent your whole body, how? The spinal line runs down the insteps of your feet. The zones run vertically through your body, from head to feet and hands. Again, there are five zones on each side. There are also three zones that traverse your body (diaphragm line, waist line, and pelvis/heel line).
Chest-Moving down your body from your head is your chest area. For your chest the balls of each foot represent one side of your chest. In the same place on the top of your foot lie the reflexes that go with your lungs, breast, heart, shoulders, air passages, thymus gland—everything that is in your chest. Your diaphragm reflex lies across the base of the ball of each foot.
Abdomen-All of your abdominal organs reflexes is in the instep of your feet. Anything that has do to do with digestion.
Pelvis -The reflexes for you pelvic area lie on the sole and the sides of your heel and across the top of your ankles, so it’s basically your entire heel.
Limbs-There isn’t part of the foot that resembles the limbs, whereas you can see fairly easily how the head corresponds to the toes and the torso to the body of the foot. Arms and legs follow the basic structure and each limb holds the reflexes to the other limb on the same side. These are called side reflexes.
