Step 1: Grip the foot, placing your thumb on the top and your fingers on the base of your foot. Using your fingers, begin applying firm pressure to the area inside by the ball of the foot. This is also known as the Lung & Heart Reflex Zone.
Step 2: Next move to your big toe. Place your thumb on top of the nail, begin applying pressure to the bottom of your big toe with your pointer finger. This area is also known as the Brain & Pineal Reflex Zone.
Step 3: Grip the base of your foot. Thumb will rest on the side, right under the big toe. Begin walking your fingers with firm pressure across the area under all of the toes. (The walking motion is similar to tapping your fingers on a desk) This area is also known as theSinus Reflex Zone.
