Energize your body with reflexology massage

Reflexology views each part of the body as a microcosm of every other part. As such, within the landscape of your feet, palms, or forearms are maps or holographic representations of all the organs of your body. When you massage these points, it causes a “reflex” in the areas they respond to.

In today’s video, yoga wellness healer Kaamini Patel shows you how to perform reflexology stimulations using a simple tennis ball as your massage tool. A few minutes of gliding your limbs over a tennis ball daily can energize and relax your body at the same time. Let’s get started!

The feet

From a seated position place a tennis ball under your right heel. Put enough pressure onto the ball so that it will not slip out from under your foot while rolling it. Now move your foot forward and backward to roll the ball up and down on the sole of your feet.

Putting a little pressure on it, as much as you can, massages all the organs of the body by way of the reflexology pathways. According to Reflexology theory, rolling the ball can help with your back, heart, bladder, and so on. Since the feet are a map of the body, the more you care for your feet the more energized your body will feel overall.

Now keep the ball in the center of the foot and make circles with it. Energizing and circulating your body with every revolution.

Now move onto the toes, rolling the ball into each webbing. The big toe is related to brain power. The second and third toes are your eyes. The fourth and fifth toes are related to your ears.

Spend a few minutes each day on this, with both feet, to energize your body.

Peak Golden Oil

The palms

Now bring the tennis ball up onto your right thigh and work the reflex points on the right palm. Like before, you will roll the ball under your palm, applying pressure as you do so. This can help relieve symptoms of arthritis, rheumatism, carpal tunnel syndrome, and much more.

Your hands are also a map of the body. Your thumb is related reflexively with the brain; your palm heel with the intestines; your fingers with the sinuses; and various areas of your palm with the stomach, liver, and so on.

The arms

Now place your elbow on the ball and roll it slowly. If the ball gets away from you, you can do this on the floor where more surface areas is present.

Next, lower your forearm down onto the ball and press it firmly, rolling the ball up and down your forearm. There are seven reflex points on the forearm, so you want a nice deep steady roll over the entire area.


Overall, you can roll a tennis ball under almost any area of your body, from your feet to your back to your neck. You can do these sitting on the floor, in a chair or while watching television. See if you can manage two or three minutes per foot and palm, several days a week and see the benefits it can bring.
