Reflexology is one part of massage therapy whose premise is that the massage of particular points of the body, especially on the feet and hands, can have an advantageous effect on your health.
Massaging certain points of the feet is directly related to various body organs, and it treats very specific issues, reduces stress, provides relaxation, and even increases the sexual desire.
In addition, foot massage significantly treats various diseases, improves blood circulation, enhances sleep patterns, regulates digestive balance, treats edema during pregnancy, treats restless leg syndrome, and promotes skin health.
For instance, the massage of the big toe has direct effects on the brain and lungs, and the pressure on the second, third, and fourth toe will alleviate a toothache. Also, the massage of the pinky toe will reduce an earache. This is only a small part of all the benefits that foot massage may provide for your health!
