How Do You Read a Foot Reflexology Chart?

To read a foot reflexology chart, you should see three views of the feet, including the soles, tops and sides. Each section of the chart displays labels of pressure points, which are said to correspond to the organs and systems of the body, as presented by the Reflexology Research Project.

The sole of each foot correlates to a vertical half of the body, according to the University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality & Healing. The left foot mirrors the left half of the body, representing the organs and body parts, and vice versa for the right side of the body.

The liver and gallbladder are on the right side of the body, and the foot chart displays these organs in the corresponding mid-region of the right foot. The reflexology practitioner applies pressure to that area to enhance the functions of these organs, explains the University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality & Healing.

The foot reflexology chart shows different sections of the body, as reported by the Guardian Liberty Voice. The toes represent the head to shoulder areas, the ball and arch areas represent internal organs, and the insides of the feet correlate to the spine. The chart shows where practitioners may apply pressure and manipulation to release energy believed to relieve pain and illnesses.
