All the features of reflexology

Reflexology is a combined system of medical and diagnostic methods, which is based on the centuries-old experience of the peoples of the East and Asia.

In fact, all the methods of reflexotherapy are referred to alternative medicine, for a long time it was not recognized by specialists supporting traditional methods of treatment, however, one can not help saying that it is really capable of having a number of positive effects.

It has long been proven that the human body is a complex system that is structured in such a way that everything is interconnected: internal organs, nervous system and external tissues. And, if there is a blockage of an organ, then the whole system suffers.

Special features

It is believed that the homeland of this doctrine is China, it was there that the first written references were found to the existence of a special treatment, called "chen-chiu", that is, "point effect". These mentions are attributed to the V century BC.

For a long time in the East, reflexology was almost the main method of recovery, but in Europe, the popularity of this practice increased only in the XII century.

Even today, not everyone takes this method seriously, and it is very in vain, because this ancient Oriental doctrine left a numerous trace of positive feedback from those who have already tried it on themselves.

All methods that are combined under the concept of reflexology, based on the stimulation of the central nervous system, spinal cord and brain.

Traditional Chinese medicine has its own explanation of the concept of reflexology, considering it a way of controlling and managing energy flows that pass through the entire human body along certain routes. In total there are 800 main points through which these main channels pass (there are a total of 12).

Using various methods of reflexology, you can influence these channels, change the amount of energy in them, speed up or slow down its movement, if there is such a need.

It is believed that the evidence of "excess" energy is an inflamed organ, which, most often, manifests pain symptom. The "lack of" energy is evidence of the "withering" of the body, its inability to fully cope with its functions.



Perhaps one of the most famous and effective methods in reflexology, which originated in the East about 2.5 thousand years ago. How to conduct acupuncture, perhaps, is known to many: under the skin are introduced special needles, thereby affecting certain, so-called acupuncture points of the body.

In ancient times, such needles were made of ivory, and today iron, silver and even gold needles are made for these purposes. As a rule, very thin needles are used for acupuncture, no thicker than the thickness of a human hair.

The depth of penetration can vary from a few millimeters to several centimeters, depending on the area of ​​impact.

After all the needles are installed, a person should lie down with them for about 30 minutes, a specialist can scroll some of them clockwise or counterclockwise. In our countries, this therapy is mainly carried out exclusively with adult patients, but in China these methods are used absolutely for everyone, including for the treatment of children.

The Chinese are generally confident that children, even more often adults, may need to establish energy channels, the poor functioning of which can affect the poor concentration of the child, headaches,frequent dizziness and weakness of joints.

Microcurrent therapy

In fact, this is the same acupuncture, only the process does not use real needles, they are replaced with the help of measurable electric charges. It is believed to be a very effective treatment that can be used to relieve spasms and inflammation, as well as to relieve pain.

This technique allows you to cope with the local loss of mobility, it is often used by professional athletes to recover from injuries.


It is performed with the help of fingers or special instruments by means of mechanical action on the acupuncture points of the body. The principle is the same as in acupuncture with the difference that during the acupressure there is no damage to the integrity of the skin.


The impact on certain points of the body with the help of heat, most often, it is carried out with the help of wormwood cigarettes.


The effect on acupuncture points is due to the action of an alternating magnetic field. The nature of the impact is determined by the frequency of the vibrations of the magnetic field.

Laser puncture

Has taught widespread in the last decade, is based on the action of the energy of optical quantum generators. The impact on special points is due to the light beam of the laser beam.

In addition to these methods, there are many others, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages over the others, and only the experienced reflexotherapy specialist can choose the one that is suitable for a specific situation.

It’s highly discouraged to engage in such methods on your own and at home, otherwise, without much knowledge in this science, there is a risk to greatly worsen your condition.
