Areas in the feet have reflex points that correspond to every part of the body, which can be affected when these points are stimulated. When pressure is applied to nerve endings in the feet, the spinal cord and the sensory cortex of the brain respond by sending information via the nervous system to other parts of the body. Lactic acid and calcium crystals can accumulate at reflex points in the feet, and massage can break them up allowing nerve energy to flow more freely. The treatment is relaxing and beneficial as an adjunct to a number of health conditions including PMS, anxiety, hypertension, stress, headache, and skin inflammations. The belief is that reflexology encourages the body's own healing mechanisms.
