Body reflexes are located directly over (or opposite) the corresponding organ, gland or part—and when massaged with reflexology techniques, affect those corresponding areas. All the reflexology principles apply, but the techniques vary from traditional reflexology techniques to those that resemble acupressure, applied over a larger surface area with broad pressure or kneading. Body reflexes can be accessed over clothing or on skin. We will be studying a body reflex map, with emphasis on improving bowel function, releasing the diaphragm, and quick body reflex ‘tricks’.
