Basically what it does is it uses the points of the feet (or hands) to connect with, like a telephone line, a completely different area of the body. Imagine that the tip and side of your thumb is hooked up to your head and therefore when you stimulate it, it reduces your headache! Or you press on a point underneath your foot and it stimulates your liver to get it working more effectively. Reflexology or Trigger Points stimulate and replenish areas of weakness, while unblocking over-taxed areas of tension and/or accumulation for better flow and circulation to the organs, muscles, and other cells of the body.
