Reflexology relies on the massage and stimulation of reflex points in the hands and feet.

Reflexology-an ancient Chinese and Egyptian therapy-is the application of specific pressures to reflex points in the hands and feet. The reflex points relate to every organ and every part of the body. Massaging of the reflex points is done to prevent or cure diseases. Dr. William Fitzgerald and Eunice D. Ingham introduced reflexology into the United States earlier this century.
