Reflexology, a technique used in Thai massage therapy and ancient Chinese medicine, is based on the belief that applying pressure to reflexes on the feet and hands can effectively treat the entire body. By stimulating nerves on specific areas of the feet and hands, reflexology stimulates blood flow and eliminates toxin buildup in the corresponding organs and systems of the body.

A new large scale study in the Michigan State University shows that foot reflexology is beneficial in reducing symptoms in cancer patients.
