Reflexology chart, showing a plan view of the feet indicating the relationship between regions of feet & the organs, structures & systems of the body to which they correspond. Reflexology (reflex zone therapy) is based on the premise that structures of the body have a particular & precisely located reflex zone mapped out over the toes, soles & sides of the feet. The practice arose from "zone theory" (c. 1900), which stated that the body is divided into 10 meridians running down the body from head to toe, which pass through various organs & terminate in the feet. Discomfort in a particular zone may be related to a defective organ & is treated by compression-massage.
