Reflexology is a form of foot or hand massage related to acupressure. Reflexologists believe different areas on the feet or hands represent, and are connected to, different parts of the body.
They apply gentle pressure to specific points on the feet or hands. The aim is to help you feel more relaxed.
Reflexology has been used to try to improve symptoms related to cancer or treatment, such as feeling sick (nausea), tension, pain and fatigue. So far, medical evidence hasn’t proven that it’s effective when used in this way. But, some evidence shows that reflexology can help people feel more relaxed and many people use it to help ease stress and anxiety.
