On November 19 Dr. Oz invited reflexologist Michelle Ebbin on to the show to demonstrate how to decode your foot using “foot mapping” techniques and how treating your feet using reflexology can help to relieve PMS, Digestion Issues, Headaches and many other common ailments that affect so many.
Michelle Ebbin said that reflexology has been used for centuries to treat a wide array of ailments.

Stimulating pressure points helps to put your body in balance and improve your overall health. The “Foot Map” of your feet has different points that connect to many parts of your body. Applying pressure to these points provide effective relief from many painful ailments like PMS, Stomach discomfort, and headaches.
Remedy Technique To Treat Digestion Problems By Using Reflexology
The pressure points to treat stomach discomfort and digestional issues are found in soles of your feet. You can treat this area on your food by taking a tennis ball (or any other round object of similar size) and roll your food over it. Michelle explained to Dr. Oz that you should take notice to focus some of the pressure onto the inner soles of your feet. She said that doing this technique helps to increase blood flow and open congested passageways. She said to do this treatment 2 to three times per day. You can keep a ball near the area where you work or are sitting at frequently. Try this tip and see if it helps with your digestion problems.
