Today reflexology refers to a method of treatment whereby reflex points in the feet are massaged in a particular way to bring about an effect in areas of the body quite distant from the feet.There are also similar reflex points to be found in hands,which may also be used fro treatment,but where possible it is preferable to work on the foot reflexes since the response is better.Reflexology is derived from what was originally known as 'zone therapy',a term which is sometimes still used. The treatment technique of reflexology-the micro-massaging of reflex points on the soles of the feet-has historical roots extending back 5,000 years.Each part of our bodies is reflected in its own special reflex point on our feet,and the skill of the trained reflexologist is to detect and correct any energy imbalance and restore harmony to all the systems of the body.
