The use of a reflexology chart helps the learner to see where the key pressure points in the body are located. While a trained therapist will have an intimate knowledge of where these points lie, for a beginner or layman a reflexology chart is the easiest way to see where they lie.
The beauty of a reflexology chart is that it provides a visual representation of the pressure points, which for most people is by far the easiest way to learn. They are usually colour coded, so each area of the body is represented by a particular colour. Thus the heart might be represented in red, the eyes light blue, the lungs in green and so on.
The learner can then refer to this when trying to learn or remember where the different zones lie. These are typically mapped out on the feet, hands and ears, the main zones that practitioners use to treat the body.
A beginner or learner working in this way can quickly locate the correct pressure point to stimulate for the corresponding organ or system in the body.
By correctly stimulating the appropriate spot, the practitioner can help to reduce stress, eliminate pain, clear toxins from the body, and unblock the flow of energy.
