What is Reflexology and what is the benefit of Reflexology

Reflexology is also known by various names like Zone Therapy, Shiatsu, Pointed Pressure Therapy, Contact Therapy, Concentrated Massage or Acupuncture (without Needles), is probably the oldest system of natural treatment in the world, based on scientific technique of massage or pressure.

What is Reflexology can be described once we also have some knowledge about Zone Therapy. The concept of zone therapy which is the basis of reflexology. Zone therapy is very simple. According to it, there are ten invisible life force currents massing through the body from head to feet and hands, in line with all toes and fingers ending in the tips. The specific area falling under each life force current s called a zone. There are five longitudinal zones on the right side of the body and five longitudinal zones on the left side of the body in equal proportions. All the ten zones are parallel over the entire body covering head, face, shoulders, arms, hands, chest, abdomen, reproductive organs, legs and feet.

To get the desired results from zone therapy, it is imperative that one must possess the basic knowledge of the position of various organs in the body. A number of drawings inserted in the beginning of the book give approximate location of the organs in the body and their reflex points in hands and feet.
