Reflexology is a system of massage through reflex points on the feet to relieve tension and help illness. Other areas that can be used are the head and hands, but it is most commonly the feet that are used. Foot massage came from China and originated there over 5000 years ago. Different parts of the body and body organs are aligned to areas on the soles of the feet and treatment is by pressure and massage. Again, it is often the combined pressure and massage associated with therapeutic touch that helps the patient to relax and the gut to cease spasmodic action.
