Foot Reflexology

(Instagram Repost)

Have you heard of reflexology?

It’s based on the TCM theory that body parts, organs and systems are interconnected.

So massaging various body parts can confer health benefits to other parts of the body.

traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)

In TCM, reflexology aims to keep qi (pronounced “chee” aka “vital force”) flowing smoothly throughout the body. This maintains health as disease is believed to result from blocked qi. [1]

There are many other theories as to why reflexology might work and some research to support it but to date the evidence is limited and mostly anecdotal. [1]

The feet in particular have a map of pressure points corresponding to other parts of the body.

I love this reflexology walk at our park.

The stones are delightfully brutal and I can only last a few rounds for now.

A good bonus Is I get to ground/earth myself when I hold the metal poles for support!

Have you tried reflexology before?

I’m still a little sceptical so if anyone has experienced benefits from this, pls comment and share below!
