What is reflexology massage?
A reflexology massage involves pressuring of reflexive points in the feet or hands or body (advanced practitioners know of these). These reflexive points are thought to be representative of various internal organs. The lung is represented in the balls of the feet, while the gonads are represented in the heel of the feet, and the gastrointestinal tract is fully represented in the arch of the feet. As such all of your internal organs from your brains to your brawns is represented in such reflexive points.
The practice of reflexology massage can be traced back to the practices of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda. Reflexologists divide the body into ten vertical zones – five on the left and five on the right side of the body. It is from these vertical zones that the basic life energy Qi flows. A practitioner then touts that it is due to our daily repetitive banal activities that there might be blockages in these channels.
Blockage of basic life energy doesn’t sound good and it isn’t because the resultant thing from the blockages can be only one – disease. Some of the roots of reflexology can be traced back to Ayurveda as well. In Ayurveda, there are well defined Marma points through which the basic life energy – Prana flows.
