Hand Reflexology Chart - Pressure Points
What is Hand Reflexology?
Hand reflexology is premised on the belief that applying pressure to different points on your hands (top and bottom) will positively influence various other body parts, organs, and functioning systems (digestion, cardiovascular, etc.) throughout your entire body.
As you will be able to discern in viewing the hand reflexology chart below (also known as a hand reflexology map), hand reflexology therapy consists of applying pressure to these specific points on your hands to trigger pain relief, improve bodily functions / organ systems, and to provide natural preventative medical treatment to corresponding areas throughout the body.
The effectiveness of hand reflexology on major diseases and illnesses is still being studied, but there's no denying that hand reflexology therapy reduces stress! So much so, that some businesses (for medical cost cutting measures) provide reflexology treatment to their employees as an effective preventative medical benefit.
