Reflexology is the study of reflexes in the nervous system that may be applied to healing organic diseases. In some respects, therapeutic treatments based on reflexology superficially resemble acupressure treatments, because the two treatment regimens are very similar. Both regimens activate specific areas of the body remotely with massage or steady pressure to more accessible parts of the body. In the case of reflexology specifically, nerves in the ears, hands, and feet are stimulated to provide treatment.
Reflexology also refers to therapeutic procedures for treating illnesses that employ the principles of nervous system relfexes studied by reflexologists.
