Reflexology: Working Corresponding Limbs to Ease Cramp, Restless Legs and Painful Elbow
Σύστοιχα και Αντίστοιχα ανακλαστικά από την Λυνν Μπούθ. If a client has a fractured foot in plaster then reflexology cannot be applied to the foot but instead the two reflexology systems on the hand would be treated consecutively. Firstly, the Reflexologist would work to generally stimulate all the organs, glands, and musculoskeletal reflexes that are mapped out on the hands in the same way as they appear on the feet. The hands are just as sensitive as the feet, and the all hand reflexes are equally responsive. Secondly, 'referral area' reflexology would be applied the left hand to stimulate the left foot itself. For example, if the big toe and first metatarsal bone were fractured on the foot, then extra attention would be paid to gently applying pressure, rotation and stimulation to the left thumb and the fleshy areas around the first metacarpal bone to energetically improve the blood supply and homeostasis (balance) to the injured part.
