The dictionary definition of “reflex” is; n. an image produced by reflection.  REFLEXOLOGY is based on the principle discovered in ancient times that every organ, gland and body part, even skin, has its reflection on an area of one’s hands, feet, and ears called a “reflex area.”

"Reflexology enables the body's regenerative powers to fight disease and imbalance."  -Anthony J. Porter, England

The definition of reflexology
--From the International Institute of Reflexology
Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all of the glands organs and parts of the body.  Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas.

Reflexology can be defined as the act of applying pressure on specific reflex areas in the feet using thumb, finger and hand techniques.  This causes a repercussion in the body: because there is an exact representation of the human body found in the foot. 
- Taken from J. Manzaanares, MD

“In reflexology the use of any tools, other than our hands, lessens the element of human touch and supports the impersonal nature of technology which is already rampant in our society.  As human beings we must learn to balance the material wonder of technology with the spiritual demands of our nature if we are to be holistic and healthy.  Human touch is the compensating factor.”
- Christine Issel author of

“The more high tech, the more high touch is needed.”
