Reflexology is based on the premise that the soles of the feet and palms of the hand are linked energetically to each part of the body, and that by gently massaging or applying pressure to specific areas of the feet or hand the reflexologist can detect and treat health problems in the corresponding organ or part of the body. For example, the toes link to the head, whist the heel links to the lower back. A reflexology session is usually deeply relaxing and even comforting. Reflexologists in the UK are regulated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
