Reflexology massage is a type of massage, practiced in ancient Chinese medicine, that involves the applied pressure to the feet, hands, and ear to promote improved health and wellbeing. In Chinese medicine, different body parts correspond with different pressure points on the body. Reflexologists use maps of these points in the feet, hands, and ears to determine where they should apply pressure. Reflexology massage relieves tension and clears blockages by stimulating sensory receptors in the nerve fibers of the foot, hand, and ear. During a reflexology massage session, endorphins are released into the bloodstream, easing aches and pains, promoting a feeling of deep relaxation.
