I've had a few massages where they will do a bunch of stuff on the feet. It feels good, but I don't think it does anything other than temporary stress reduction.see: http://skepdic.com/reflex.html Skeptically yoursK.
Actually I heard that if you massage certain parts of the feet, it pertains to certain organs of your body.I personally love getting a foot massage and always wondered about the true benefits myself. Please post again if you here anything further.
Every part of your body is supposedly represented in all sorts of places. Doesn't make any of them true (eyes, ears, hands, feet, I'm sure there are more).OTOH some alt med practitioners often handle the psycho-social aspects of healing people better than many doctors. Doesn't mean the treatment works, just the bedside manner is enough to make a big difference.CheersK.
