Is possible, influencing only foot, to help an organism in general?

foot Reflexology is a system of diagnosis of corporal illnesses and their treatment by means of contact or rendering impact on certain areas of foot which correspond to these or those bodies or systems of an organism.

This science is based on representation that foot is somatopichesky body (from Greek som - a body, a topic - the card). In other words, foot is a peculiar card of a body of the person, and reflex zones of foot are directly connected with concrete internals and fabrics. For example, the thumb of a leg is tied with the head, all fingers together reflect nervous system, and the heel represents a projection of pelvic bodies. Thus, there are areas of a reflex for all internals and even joints.

Influencing reflex zones of foot, it is possible to reduce pain, to reduce stress, to stabilize a power stock of an organism, to improve work of all bodies and systems, to render positive therapeutic effect at some diseases.

But foot is not only “the card of a concrete organism“. It at the same time is also the “working body“ assuming all weight of our body, and not always in optimum conditions.

The touch is especially important to children. It transfers tenderness and care, installs feeling of own importance and gives a positive spirit. A necessary condition for the kid to grow the healthy and harmoniously developed person, - tender touches in the necessary quantities from the loved one.

Researches show that children whom touch more often have higher ability to a survival, than those who are deprived of such contact.
