The principle of this treatment rests in the premise that the meridian network connects all tissues, organs and cells in our body. Each organ in the body is connected to a specific reflex point on the foot through the intermediary of 300 nerves. A trained foot reflexologist can put pressure on different meridians or energy lines on the sole and side of the feet to determine the cause of illness.
By using pressure on these points, foot massage is good for stimulating blood flow and lymph circulation. Fans of this therapy believe it can cure not only colds and minor ailments but more serious health problems as well. These include liver dysfunction, constipation, chronic headaches, and skin allergies.
