Foot reflexology is a treatment that’s been practiced for millennia. It involves applying pressure to different points on the bottom of the foot.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, these points correspond to different areas of the body. They are believed to have multiple benefits, including reducing stress, aiding digestion, and promoting sound sleep.
What is reflexology?
“Reflexology is commonly known as a holistic practice performed on the feet,” says Brian Goodwin, aesthetician, herbalist, and international educator at Éminence Organic Skin Care. “The concept is that there are meridian points on the feet that correspond with various organs in the body.”
According to Dustin Martinez, a Los Angeles–based chiropractic physician, research from 2014 shows that reflexology can improve quality of life in several ways.
This involves reducing stress and bringing balance to the body, energy, and mind.
“Reflexology is ancient medicine — it’s been around forever,” he says. “It can be traced as far back as 2330 B.C.”
According to Martinez, reflexology was given its current name in the United States in the early 1900s.
