Reflexology, also known as touch therapy, originated in ancient China where pressure or massage stimulation was applied to the feet to treat or reduce diseases of certain organs. Certain pressure points were said to stimulate certain organs in ancient Taoist belief.

Reflexology is an ancient field that has become a growing field of study for holistic health careers. There is a high demand for reflexologists because individuals are looking for more non-invasive types of health care. The belief behind holistic medicine is centered upon the ability of the body to heal itself. With reflexology, there is no need for drugs. It is a system that applies pressure to various designated areas of the body such as ear, hand, and foot without using any other sources such as instruments, materials, lotions, oils and creams.

By massaging key reflex points in the hands and feet, energy blocks are released within the human body, the immune system is stimulated, and toxins are dislodged so that the body can eliminate them naturally.

You can promote well being and healing within your own body with a few simple reflexology techniques. You can easily administer simple reflexology techniques to your hands before rising in the morning and after you go to bed at night. By making it a habit, you will find that you feel better. Many people suffering from anxiety find that applying pressure to specific zones in the hands and feet can promote relaxation. As you practice these techniques, you will find the unhealthy energy leaving your body and being replaced by healing energy.


You can learn simple reflexology techniques online by going to and watching a reflexologist demonstrate the procedure. The therapist explains everything as he/she works, and it is very easy to understand. You can watch as the therapist uses his/her hands to apply pressure to certain areas. Reflexology treatments are good for everyone. You can learn how to apply the techniques to your infants and children, as well as your partner.

Many people learn reflexology techniques by first being treated by a licensed reflexologist. These people may have been referred to a reflexology clinic because they didn’t want to take prescribed medications for their pain and discomfort. By learning simple reflexology techniques, you can enjoy relaxation and healing every day of the week. Administering the techniques yourself may not replace seeing a reflexologist, but it does provide continuity in your own level of health care.


Applying simple reflexology techniques to your fingers, hands and wrists can promote health and healing to every area of your body. Applying firm, but gentle pressure, and massaging the fingers of both hands, starting at the ends of your fingers, brings health and well being to your ears, eyes, brain and hair follicles on both sides of your body. Each hand represents one-half of the body. By massaging your thumbs with gentle pressure, not enough to hurt, you can affect the thyroid gland, sinuses and your spinal column.

Reflexology techniques applied to the fleshy part of your thumbs can help relieve the pain of a sore throat. These techniques, when done on a regular basis, will help to promote healing and wellness throughout the body. A combination of movements, pinching, rubbing and pulling on specific areas of the fingers and hands can affect the whole body.

Pressure applied to the center of the anterior wrist can help relieve back pain. Move your pressure upwards a little and you can relieve nausea.

If you would like to learn more simple reflexology techniques, you may want to contact a reflexology professional, or you can purchase a book written specifically teaching these techniques.


Difference between Reflexology and Massage:

There is still a lot of confusion and misconception about what reflexology is and what makes it different from massage. Massage deals with touch all over the body with major emphasis on muscular, circulatory and lymphatic systems. In reflexology, we only work on the feet, hands and ears, and with reflex points corresponding to distant parts of the body. Reflexology not only helps the muscular, circular and lymphatic systems, it also has a profound effect on the inside of the body, such as the head, neck, chest, abdomen and so forth. In reflexology, only shoes and socks are removed with the client otherwise staying fully clothed. Whereas a foot massage certainly feels good it has little to do with the study, art and science of reflexology.
