REFLEXOLOGY CHART DEPICTIONS
Some reflexology charts are old. Some are new. Regardless of age of a reflexology chart, there is no credible scientific evidence that shows one chart being more effective than another.
Never use a reflexology chart without expressed owner permission. Unauthorized use of a reflexology chart is unethical and could also be considered illegal use. Lawsuits could prevail when someone uses copyrighted materials without permission.
ALL foot reflexology charts show the bottoms of the feet. Some charts will also show the tops and sides of the feet too. Some reflexology charts are old. Some are new.
Reflexology Points That are of General Agreement
In a reflexology chart, the sole of the foot should match a map of the human body:
- Reflex points for the head would be found in the toes.
- Reflex points for the chest would be found in the ball of the foot.
- Reflex points for the organ area would be found in the arch of the foot, under the ball and before the heel.
- Reflex points for the pelvic area would be found in the bottom of the foot, or in and around the heel.
Eunice Ingham credited as the original creator of a specific reflex point foot chart. In Ingham’s chart, what’s important to note is she created a map of the foot in much greater detail than previously held. Individual reflex points for organs were not a customary part of the original foot zone therapy. These organ reflex points, which are now commonly depicted in foot reflexology charts, are largely contributed to Ingham’s work.
It is estimated that over 100-foot reflexology charts have been created since Ingham’s original depiction of foot reflex points. While most foot reflexology charts do not match, common similarities have created industry standards.
Foot reflexology charts follow a map of the human body. The top of the body is depicted in the toes and the lower body reflex points are depicted in the lower heel of the foot.
Charts should show a left and right foot. The spleen is found on the left side of the body and the gall bladder is found on the right-hand side of the body. These spleen and gallbladder reflex points should be depicted in their respective areas of the left and right feet.
Charts usually would not depict an organ that is primarily located on one side of the body on both feet, or the opposite foot from where the organ is located.
