Reflexology, often combined with massage, is technically not a form of massage in itself. It's an entirely separate practice that applies pressure to reflex zones on your feet, hands or outer ears to affect your entire body.

What's a reflex zone? Simply stated, it's an area that is connected to other parts of your body. You have reflex zones on your feet, hands and ears. The basic theory for applying pressure to reflex zones is that the pressure affects the nerves, which then carry signals to other parts of your body. Some reported benefits include relaxation, enhanced lymphatic drainage, and improved blood circulation. These benefits help relieve the effects that stress has on your body, which in turn helps your body find balance and thereby heal itself.

How does that differ from massage? Many of the benefits are the same. However, "massage" is the manipulation of soft tissue, while applying pressure to reflex zones doesn't even make an attempt to manipulate soft tissue. "Reflexologists" (who are not also "massage therapist's") are limited to touching your hands, feet, and ears.
