If you experience any pain or tightness in your body, it’s definitely a good idea to look into reflexology. It’s a form of massage therapy and it’s one of the best ways to relieve tension and stress. Reflexology focuses on pressure points in the head, hands and feet that link to every part in the body.

The ancient practice is also known to increase circulation, improve natural balance, as well as help your overall health. For example, relieve pain associated irritable bowel syndrome, PMS/menopause, headaches, respiratory problems and much more.

Since reflexology can be quite complex, here’s a really simple beginner’s guide using charts. It’s best to use your index finger or thumb to apply firm pressure on the reflex point desired. Massage in a circular motion for 15-30 seconds, then massage in the opposite direction for 15-30 seconds. Repeat this on all reflex points.

The charts below will help you better understand what each reflex point represents.




A little bit of reflexology can really do wonders for your body. Try it out!
