Reflexology is an alternative therapy by pressing on feet, hands, ears, fingers etc. without using oil.
There are certain reflex points in our body and those all are inter-connected. The reflex points have the connection with the different parts of our body.
If we press in the certain part of our foot, it heals the organ of our body which is related to that reflex point.
Reflexology can cure different acute diseases too.
This can improve our immune system and keeps us healthy.
We can take an example of reflex points of our feet.
In our feet, there are most of the reflex points of our organs. Our feet have complete points of our stomach, liver, heart, lungs, brain, ears etc.
If we press in the certain points of our foot, related organ starts to be healed.
In this way, our hands and ears also have all those points related to the certain organs.
