Chinese medicine has long used pressure points on feet to cure diseases. There are a large number of points on the feet. You don’t need to be a professional doctor to be able to use the points effectively, although an understanding of what they do is incredibly useful. In general, foot massage is a healthy thing to do (not to mention is feels great). This is because it can access these pressure points.
The pressure points on the feet are incredibly powerful points that can be used to help regulate our health throughout the body. The feet are special in that they have a point for every part of the body. For that reason, the study of pressure points on the feet has its own branch of Chinese medicine, called reflexology.
Just by examining the feet, a reflexologist is able to diagnose conditions in the body and through pressing on these pressure points can start to treat the problems. You may have noticed your feet being tender in places when you’re sick. The organs and body in general send signals to the feet. That being the case, your internal condition is reflected in the feet and a great way to improve your health and target certain problems is by using pressure points on the feet.
