One of the most physical characteristics of humanity, the hands contain reflex zones and pressure points related to the systems and organs of the body just like the feet. The reflex zones and points of the hands present the most effective means of treating psychological and neurological disorders due to their sophisticated relationship with the brain.
Applying her groundbreaking combination of reflexology and craniosacral therapy to the hands, Dr Martine Faure-Alderson explains how to use hand reflexology to treat the brain and each of the body's systems, from the digestive system to the human energetic system. She provides precise, full-colour, mapped hand diagrams illustrating the exact placement of the points according to the bones of the hands, the result of more than 40 years of research and clinical practice. She explains how to use the occipital zones of craniosacral therapy to pinpoint which zones and points on the hands to treat.
Examining the psychological level of brain-hand interactions, the author reveals how neurological dysfunctions and mental disorders respond more readily to hand reflexology than to other forms of therapy. She explains how many physical ailments have a psychological component and how reflexology automatically triggers the release of endorphins by working directly on the autonomic nervous system.
The author explores the role of nutritional supplements, including Omega 3's, as a support to reflexology therapy and shows how finely tuned reflexology stimulates the body's self-healing abilities and cellular regeneration, making this an indispensable resource for holistic healing practitioners and for home self-care.
