Beyond Talks says that, “this mixture of healing art and science is based on the premise that an energy channel encompassing 12 vital organs exists from our feet to the tops of our heads.”
According to Wimp,
“Reflexology relies on the fact that you’re a bundle of nerves – literally! By stimulating those key reflex points, reflexology helps stimulate and regulate blood circulation throughout the body. People have relieved headaches, backaches, digestive issues, sleep problems, and more through these techniques.”
