Every part of the anatomy is connected to the foot and is represented by a reflex-zone located on a specific part of the foot. By accurately applying pressure to these specific areas, the relevant part of the foot and/or body is contacted. Use your thumbs and fingers to apply pressure to the exact areas you want to relax. Apply enough pressure to generate a response, but not so much that the pain is constant and severe. Be sure to apply pressure to the entire foot reflex zone
Reflexology is a state of deep relaxation where you become open to suggestions, much like hypnosis you become very receptive. And much like hypnosis some believe in it and some do not.
