Reflexology is a technique that is believed to be used as a way to signal balance to the nervous system through pressure point and massage techniques to the feet hands and ears for the release of endorphins. Endorphins in the body are a neurotransmitters (natural chemicals) which aid in relieving pain. Reflexology is good for circulation and is thought to improve overall health.

Reflexology, or zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on what reflexologists claim to be a system of zones and reflex areas that they say reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
