Anxiety often is reflected in the reflexes for the upper body. The story I will share about reflexology helping anxiety is about a man who had experienced severe physical abuse in childhood. His wife, a massage therapist, was looking to reflexology as a way of unblocking tissue in his upper body and treating his anxiety. I treated his arms and torso through many reflex areas in the hands, feet, and ears. Then I treated the lung reflexes and his emotions began releasing.  His wife called and said he reacted similarly in the next massages she gave him. She thanked me for how much better he felt and that she was able to help him release much more easily following his reflexology treatments.
