Chinese Foot Massage and Reflexology

Chinese Foot Reflexology and Massage embraces the concept that certain pressure points across our body, such as points on our ears, feet and hands, are able to influence the healthy functioning of related organs.

These points are called acupoints or acupressure points and in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) they are usually accessed through massage, acupressure or acupuncture.

When there is an imbalance in an organ or other area of the body, tender or sensitive acupoints will be found in the corresponding areas on the ear, feet or hands. This analysis can help to treat the problems inside our bodies.

To support therapeutic work, there are acupressure or reflexology charts (or maps) available of the hands, ears and feet. They provide information about which points correspond to which organ, body part, or functional body system.

The idea of Qi is essential here, because applying pressure to the acupoints encourages the flow of Qi which results in unblocking meridians and restoration of balance and health accordingly.

A typical Chinese Foot Massage treatment usually consists of first soaking the feet in hot or warm water, followed by a thirty to sixty minutes session of massaging the feet.

Sometimes a Foot Massage also includes a short period of head, neck and shoulders massage.
