Reflexology works by creating pressure on special "zones" on the hands and feet that correspond to vital organs and areas of the body. There are almost 10,000 nerve endings in the hands and feet. Reflexology claims that applying this pressure may reduce pain and help with other physical ailments. Some of the first references to reflexology can be found in ancient Egypt written in hieroglyphics.
