Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Reflexology. Woman reflexologist massages pressure points on the sole of the foot of a male patient. Reflexology is an alternative therapy based on massage of certain points of the feet. Practitioners of this therapy believe that energy flows through the body along meridians that have their terminal points in the feet. A healthy energy flow and energy balance through these meridians is believed to be responsible for good health. Reflex points on the feet apparently correspond to 720,000 nerve endings that are in turn connected to other parts of the body and head. By massaging the feet reflexology attempts to cure disorders affecting other body parts.
