Foot Reflexology and the Organs

The practice of reflexology uses pressure points on various parts of the body. The feet have over 15,000 nerves, and this is what makes the feet ticklish and sensitive when touched. The central nervous system is connected to the brain and spinal cord, and research has shown that signals are sent to the organs. Since there are pressure points on the feet that are linked to specific organs, touching the feet may bring an overall feeling of well-being to the body. Interesting connection points include part of the ball of the foot that corresponds to the shoulder, and the digestive organs are linked to the arch in the foot. Additionally, the reproductive system may correlate to the points in the heels and ankles. There are many reasons why people prefer reflexology as a successful type of foot therapy. If you would like to learn more about how to perform this, please confer with a chiropodist who can answer any questions you may have.
