Reflexology involves accupressure massage of specific areas of the hands and feet which represent other parts of the body.  In so doing, the regular flow of life energy is unblocked and health restored. We have fourteen energy meridians which run up and down the body, coming to points at the hands, feet, and (believe it or not) ears.  There are six on each side of the spinal column, and two making up the spinal column.  Much scientific data has been recorded that proves the existence of these energy meridians. Trails of light revealed by infrared photography have been one of the ways to show the maps described in the ancient  texts of 4000 years ago.
