What is foot reflexology chart?
A reflexology foot chart is a map of your feet that corresponds with various parts of the body and ailments.
For example, if you want to relieve pain in your back, simply finding this area on the diagram should be enough for professionals as well as everyday people to treat themselves or others without having any prior knowledge of massage therapy techniques.
How do I use my reflexology foot chart to perform a foot reflexology session?
First identify which part of the body needs relief by locating it on the right hand side column labelled “Body Area” (e.g., headache).
Next find its corresponding point on either left or right dorsal zone using a ruler/straight edge measure and follow this line until it reaches one lateral arch. This will indicate where you need to apply pressure or massage.
Next, identify the appropriate reflexology color tabs with corresponding colors (e.g., blue for calm) and follow these instructions:
- Blue: The sole of your foot corresponds with the head. Pressure on this area will relieve headaches by releasing tension in your neck muscles. Place all fingers under each big toe nail, one at a time pressing firmly until you feel relief from pain near temple/side of forehead etc. Hold pressure for about 30 seconds then release grip and move to next finger. Repeat as needed but do not exceed five minutes per session
- Green: Palms of hands correspond to feet and vice versa so whichever hand needs relief use that same hand’s thumb pad on either side edge line of foot.
- Red: Use all four fingers to press the reflexologist points in a circular motion on either side of your big toe nail. This technique will help with circulation and more serious circulatory problems like Reynaud’s disease, Raynaud’s phenomenon or blood clots
- Yellow: Massage the arch area between toes for five minutes at a time. The pressure from this point helps relieve sinus headaches by releasing tension related pain near temple/side of forehead etc.
- Pink: For nausea, use two hands to massage each heel simultaneously until you feel relief and then move back up towards head with gradual increase in intensity as needed but do not exceed five minutes per session
To unblock an energy duct (meridians), use your fingers to rub the reflexologist points in a circular motion on either side of your big toe nail. Massage these points for at least five minutes
Put one foot or hand over another point and massage this area with ten strokes
- Purple: To reduce stress, put two hands onto each heel simultaneously until you feel relief and then move up towards head with gradual increase in intensity as needed but do not exceed five minutes per session
- Silver/Gray: Rub both thumbs from middle toes to outside edge along bottom of foot (between second and third metatarsals) for at least five minutes. This is good for relieving insomnia because it stimulates the production of melatonin which helps regulate sleep cycles
- Green: For fatigue, put one foot or hand over another point and massage this area for at least five minutes.
Put two hands onto either side of the big toe nails for ten seconds each (one stroke per second)
- Yellow: Massage points on outside edge of feet slowly in circular motions with thumbs, using gradually increased intensity up to five minutes as needed
- Cream/Peach: Rub both thumbs from middle toes to outside edge along top of foot (between first and second metatarsals) until you feel relief and then move down towards head if desired but do not exceed five minutes per session
- Brown: For constipation put one heel under other knee cap so that the sole is facing upwards. Make circles with thumb around ankle joint while moving foot in a circular motion.

The reflexology chart:
The reflexology foot chart can be found online and in print form. It is usually a large poster that displays the top of your feet on one side and has detailed information about three different zones below it.
These are the head, torso, and legs sections with all corresponding pressure points listed for each zone as well as additional notes about what they do to help treat certain conditions or ailments. You will also find illustrations of which parts of the body these spots correspond to when you have your whole body standing up straight (feet flat).

How to reflexology?
The first step is looking at the map on this page and seeing which area of your feet corresponds with what’s bothering you or just feeling a little off today.
Once you’ve located that spot, go ahead and press down in it for as long as feels good – try not to overdue it though!
