Reflexology does not disperse uric acid as suggested in this article. It doesn't balance the endocrine system or the spine or anywhere else. No points on the feet correlate with any organs or glands.
Also, acupuncture points have no proven association with any organ of the body except that area of the brain that recognizes the placebo effect.
All these unbelievable claims need to be proven before anyone should take them seriously.

It works for some and dont' work for others.There's quite a bit of people that are pretty satisfied with alternative treatment. The bottom line, if it works then go for it. Western medicine is not all that great either. Just look at the side effects of drugs and all the documented risk with conventional medicine.

When the feet feel good, the rest of the body feels better. Doesn't matter if there are points that correlate to organs, or just tight muscles, it helps people feel better.

The placebo effect is not a bad thing, if someone believes it helps their body, then it is helping. The brain is a very powerful thing.

Also, when having the feet massaged, the body tends to relax, which is a very good thing to happen.

Reflexology has been around for centuries. Ther have been scientific studies on the health benefits of reflexology. It is more than a spa therapy.
Reflexology creates an energetic balance in the body, bringing a sense of relaxation and increased comfort. When a person is relaxed, chemicals of relaxation circulate throughout the body.. this leads to improved immune function, improved mood and improved organ functions.
Our feet carry us through life and reflexology is a healthy way to keep us joyfully placing one foot in front of the other on the path towards wellness.
