Reflexology is a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practice that involves applying pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, or ears. The idea behind reflexology is that these points correspond to different parts of the body, and that applying pressure to these points can help improve health and relieve symptoms of various health conditions.
Reflexologists use their hands, fingers, or tools to apply pressure to specific points, with the goal of stimulating the body's natural healing processes and promoting physical and mental well-being. They believe that by working on the feet, hands, or ears, they can improve the functioning of the corresponding body parts and help the body to heal itself.
Reflexology is often used as a complementary therapy to help manage stress, relieve pain, and improve sleep, among other health concerns.
