What Is Reflexology? An Expert Gives Us the Scoop

When learning about the body in fourth grade science class, we're taught that everything is connected: Our joints connect different parts of our body to each other, and we can't do anything without functioning organs. When we're a little older, we're told that some physical pains can be healed (or made worse) by bettering our mental state. All of this comes together with the practice of reflexology.

While some might consider reflexology a fancy word for massage, it's actually much more than that. To learn more about this practice, we asked Laura Norman, founder of the Laura Norman Wellness center and author of Feet First: A Guide to Foot Reflexology, to break it down for us. She walks us through what it is, how it works, and what to expect at the end of a session.
