Hand and Foot Reflexology

Reflexology is a science based on the principle that reflex areas in the feet, hands and ears relate to  reflex areas to bring health and balance to the body through the stimulation of its own inherent healing capacity.

Reflexology is known for its ability to quickly relieve stress, harmonise the body and increase immunity - all increasingly important factors for people in all phases of life. Reflexology is a rewarding and fascinating tactile therapy and allows scope for creativity and variety within any therapeutic practice.

Good results relating to pain relief, muscle relaxation, improved digestive processes, improved circulation and lymphatic flow can be obtained very quickly. This makes reflexology an ideal complement to massage and other tactile therapies as well as nursing. It is one of the few natural therapies to be adopted by the nursing profession, and is used increasingly in palliative care, midwifery and aged care.

Basic reflexology techniques can be used by anyone at home to promote balance, reduce stress and manage pain. It also provides a simple way of staying in touch with loved ones in a very non-intrusive way.

Mapping of the Feet

The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are "reflex" areas on the feet, hands and ears that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body.

The Feet are mapped as follows:-

  the tips of the toes - head and neck area i.e. ears, eyes, nose and mouth.
  the ball of the foot – thoracic area i.e. the lung, heart and thyroid.
  the arch of the foot - abdominal area i.e. the liver, stomach, pancreas and kidney
  the heel – pelvic area i.e. sciatic nerves, lower back and intestines
  the ankle – reproductive area 
  the inner foot – the spine
  the outer foot – the outer body i.e. arms, knee and hip
