A foot reflexology chart is an effective medical tool used to determine foot reflexology points. Reflexology is practiced all over the world. There are no any specific reflexology points on the human body including the feet. Usually, reflexologists divide the body into ten vertical zones. On each side, there is five parts that the energy of the body is said to flow. This means you have to select the corresponding foot if you want to relieve body discomforts on a particular side.
What basically reflexology is?
Reflexology is a popular alternative medicinal therapy. In this therapy, by using various techniques some targeted pressure and massage is applied on certain points of the human body. According to fundamental theory, there are specific areas on the feet known as reflex points. These points are energetically connected to certain body parts and organs through some energy channels in your body.
A reflexologist removes energy blockages by applying some pressure to the reflex points. This promotes health and relieves pressure in the relevant part of the body. Furthermore, professionals believe that the ears, feet, and hands are the areas that directly connected to other parts of your body. When stimulated, these parts provide a therapeutic effect to your organs and other parts of the body.
Reflexology and normal massage are two different things. Normal massage involves rubbing certain muscles to relieve body tension while reflexology stimulates the organs and nervous system to promote health and relieves pressure in various parts of the body.

Moreover, this area serves as a highway for all communications between your nerves, your brain, muscles, and bones. It is the most important reflexology zone.
