Reflexology: Reflex Areas on the Plantar Surface of the Feet (Page 1)

Because there are reflexology "reflexes" on all surfaces of the feet (and the hands), it is not possible to show the positions of all of these reflexology "reflexes" on just one view of the feet (or hands).

This page shows the positions of some of the reflexology areas on the plantar surfaces of the feet.
"Plantar Surface" means the surface of the feet that is facing downwards when one stands with both feet flat on the floor.

Not all of the reflex areas on this surface are illustrated in this diagram because some of these reflexes over-lap, and too many labels on one diagram can make it difficult to read easily. See "Reflexology Areas - Plantar Surfaces (2)" for more reflex areas (of glands, organs, and other parts of the body) located on the plantar sufaces of the feet.
