    It feels good, but I don't think this is the cure for cancer we have all been looking for.

    Nah. I'm sure it feels good and it'll chill you out but no, it's not going to do much outside of the feet and calves.

    There are serious problems with this, and any "alternate" treatment if it is used as a replacement for, rather than an addition to, regular treatment.

    Unlike Chiropractors however, practitioners of reflexology usually do not cause deliberate harm, nor do they try to extort "feel good" money out of their clients.

    Two opinions: One short and to the point, one using and example of where things can go wrong.

    From what I've seen below, my answer will likely get me blocked - I'm not a True Believer (tm), therefore I must be silenced. So prior to that happening, I suggest anyone interested in learning why some of these alternate/holistic therapies can be dangerous check out the JREF You Tube account - start here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?... for the more extreme example - Faith Healing.

    No. I know your feet feel great after a foot massage, but, as far as affecting or stimulating other parts of the body - I think not.

    8) Reflexology
    Although reflexology is sometimes called foot massage, it is more than simple foot massage. Reflexology involves applying pressure to certain points on the foot that correspond to organs and systems in the body. Reflexology is very relaxing, especially for people who stand on their feet all day or just have tired, achy feet. To learn more, read the full article on reflexology. relaxing people feet tired achy feet learn read article reflexology

    If this is true, how come medical textbooks aren't filled with this information? We know what connects to what in the body, and there isn't any evidence of nerve endings in the feet stimulating other organs of the body. Even if anything were to occur other than contraction of a muscle, the result would probably be due to psychosomatic factors rather than the reflexology.

    Posting a chart is not evidence. You haven't really explained how stimulation of certain parts of the foot effect corresponding parts of the body. It's just like phrenology where people thought that certain areas of the brain were responsible for certain attitudes and cognitive modules. For example, there was a spot that stored friendliness, anger, memory, courtesy, jealousy, etc. However, there wasn't any evidence to suggest that certain small areas of the brain were responsible for those sort of functions. In fact, after more research was done, evidence to the contrary was found, and I'd be willing to bet that I could find a biologist/psychologist that could refute the claims of reflexology.

    I'm not being ignorant by being skeptical. I even asked you a fair question--what does reflexology treat?--and you didn't really answer it. The short version of what you said was, "Go figure it out for yourself." You're the one positing that reflexology works because that's your claim, so you are responsible for defending your position. I'm simply rejecting the claims I've heard and read about because they have yet to meet their burden of proof.

    If anyone is being ignorant, it's you. You're the one who believes in something you can't adequately explain, and then you dismiss other people as "ignorant" when they disagree with your claim.

    You post a poll asking " Do you think a foot massage can stimulate certain parts of your body?", and when That Guy tells you what he thinks, you get nasty.....I think you are the one with ego issues.

    BTW, does the reflexology treatment come with a tarot card reading?
