In reflexology theory, points and areas on the feet, hands, and ears correspond to specific organs, bones and body systems. Practitioners access these points on the feet and hands (bottom, sides, and top) and the ear (both inside as far as the finger can reach and outside) to. The Reflexology maps are based on the concept that the ear, foot, or hand are connected to all the other parts of the body through the nervous system or “energy” system and thus become a reflection or snapshot of the entire body.
