Reflexology is an alternative technique that is based on different zones on the foot being linked to different organ systems in the body. The principle of reflexology is that is there is a disease or condition in one of those organ systems, then this is reflected on the sole of the foot. The claims of reflexology is that by treating with massage the different areas on the sole of the foot, then the health of the related organ will be improved. Every single meta-analysis and systematic review on reflexology has shown that it does not work any better than a placebo. That does not mean that a reflexology massage is not soothing and useful to relax people who have a chronic disease.
