Can you please define hand and foot reflexology?

2 doctors agree

In brief: The definition is...

...pseudoscientific claptrap.
Reflexologists have no more real knowledge of the human body or health and disease than you do. It is completely bogus. A few years ago Penn & Teller trashed it on their Shotime show, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qkXR9mflOo. I love foot massages, but I don't deceive myself that it delivers any more than a good feeling.

In brief: Skin- organ connects

Belief that internal organs are expressed on the surface of hands and feet allows the reflexologist to stimulate or diminish that organs activity.
