Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.

This definition comes from the book The Complete Guide to Foot Reflexology. Reflexology Research Project. Kunz, Kevin; Kunz, Barbara (1993).
