There are reflex points in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to all the major organs, glands, muscles and nerves. By stimulating these points (those on the feet are the most widely used) through massage, we can affect all the parts of the body. Reflexology is an invaluable therapy, both alone or as part of other healthcare programmes. Reflexologists can pick up blockages in the system and it can also be used as a preventative therapy. It can alleviate stress and reduce the symptoms of many ailments, including migraine, fatigue, back pain and irritable bowel syndrome. Reflexology also calms the nervous system, alleviating anxiety and tension.
