Hi. Reflexology is an alternative medicine discipline that uses pressure on certain points on the feet, hands, or ears to treat medical conditions--for the lungs that would be asthma, bronchitis, and COPD. But a sore area on the foot would not be related to a lung problem. The foot problem could be a plantar's wart, plantar fasciitis, or perhaps Achilles' tendonitis but it wouldn't at all be related to a lung problem.
