Reflexology is a popular alternative therapy. The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are “reflex” areas on the feet and hands that correspond to the specific organs, glands and other body parts. Pressure is applies to these specific reflex areas to promote health in the corresponding organs and glands through energetic pathways. A scientific explanation is that the pressure may send signals that balance the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce pain and stress.
