Hippocratic Anatripsis training utilized by the best European Spa in 2015!

Being No1 is always multifactorial.

I am so happy that this year my work was accepted by the best Spa in Greece and from what it seems the best European Spa for 2015 voted for by The Spa Traveller readers.

Congratulations to the team at the Anazoe Spa!

..and thank you for incorporating my work with Hippocratic Anatrisis and Orthopedic Reflexology into your training program!

Liver (cholesterol) - tendons from a TCM and Western perspective!

(Ελληνικά παρακάτω)
It seems the Chinese are correct again!
In TCM the liver controls tendons, fascia, and ligaments of the body, they all rely on the nourishment of liver blood!
In western medicine a similar correlation has been found through a recent systematic review!
Is higher serum cholesterol associated with altered tendon structure or tendon pain?
Conclusions The results of this review indicate that a relationship exists between an individual’s lipid profile and tendon health. However, further longitudinal studies are required to determine whether a cause and effect relationship exists between tendon structure and lipid levels. This could lead to advancement in the understanding of the pathoaetiology and thus treatment of tendinopathy.…/2015/09/21/bjsports-2015-095100.short…
If you are a reflexologist faced with a tendon issue, among other things, examine the liver reflex and the liver meridian and work accordingly.
Working accordingly would mean to follow Hippocrates law on "rubbing - anatripsis".
Evaluate the area at hand first, and then work in order to bring about moderation!
Φαίνεται πως πάλι έχουν δίκιο οι Κινέζοι μέσω της Παραδοσιακής Κινέζικης Ιατρικής!
Είναι γνωστό ότι στην ΠΚΙ το ήπαρ σχετίζεται με τους τένοντες μεταξύ άλλων.
Μία πρόσφατη συστηματική επισκόπηση προσφέρει ενδείξεις ότι υπάρχει σχέση μεταξύ αυξημένης χοληστερίνης και την υγεία των τενόντων.
Σε τέτοιες περιπτώσεις, μεταξύ άλλων, μπορούμε πρώτα να αξιολογήσουμε το ανακλαστικό σημείο του ήπατος όπως και την πορεία του μεσημβρινού του ήπατος. Στην συνέχεια εφαρμόζοντας όπου χρειάζεται το αξίωμα (περί ανατρίψεων του Ιπποκράτη), να επαναφέρουμε τα σημεία στο "μετριο" (φυσιολογικό) δηλαδή στο άριστο!

Piezogenic papules are painful or asymptomatic papules of the feet and wrists that result from herniation of fat through the dermis. They are common, nonhereditary, and usually are not the result of an inherent connective tissue defect. Piezogenic papules of the wrist were reported in 1991.They are found in a large number of asymptomatic people.

Talking about the "foot core"

Orthopedic Reflexology - Hippocratic Anatripsis's photo.I spoke about this also at the recent ICR conference in Sheffield.
Our feet work on a feedback cycle, McKeon says. From the large muscles in the feet and legs to the small muscles in the feet, each sends messages to the brain about the environment. When these messages get disrupted, injuries arise as another muscle group tries to compensate for the miscommunication. Shoes typically set off these problems, as walking, running, dancing, cycling, or skipping force these muscles to absorb the body’s impact. If the foot’s small muscles miscommunicate or fail to send information up to the brain, the large muscles end up compensating. They overexert themselves, which ultimately leads to injury.
From my presentation to be found here:
CNS sensitization is the situation where an individual has pain lasting longer than 3-6 months and that can last for years. There is no injured tissue, healing times have surpassed, and thus there are no true noxious stimuli - nociceptive input. A sensitized patient actually feels pain; it is not from the periphery anymore but rather from within the CNS, “it’s in their head”! Due to the presence of pain, a lack of movement will follow with the hope that this strategy will generate less pain. This lack of movement will tend to blur the CNS maps (homunculus) also called sensory motor amnesia SMA. Common areas for SMA are the feet, hip joints and upper thorax. On the basis of experiments, many experts believe that gaps, smudges, or other inaccuracies in the body maps can be a significant contributing factor in many chronic pain conditions, and that fixing these problems is a potential way to cure pain.25
Characteristic of these patients are increased sensitivity to light, touch, noises, pesticides or temperature. Sleep disturbances, swollen feeling, tingling numbness and/or poor concentration have shown to be associated.
Proprioception is the brain’s ability to sense the relative positions and movements of the different body parts. The key to understanding proprioception is the body maps. Each part of the body has a separate area of the brain dedicated to moving and sensing that body part. So, we have feet, and we have virtual feet in the brain – parts of the brain that represent the size, shape and position of the feet. When mechanoreceptors in the feet are stimulated by a mechanical force (reflexologists hands), they send a signal through the nervous system to the part of the brain devoted to sensing that part of the body. Research has found that plantar massage and joint mobilization of the feet and ankles has a positive impact on balance in the elderly. 31
Movements that are most likely to lead to changes in the quality of the maps are movements that are curious, exploratory, novel, interesting, rich in sensory input, slow, gentle, mindful, non-painful. Ingham – small creeping movement. 26
Motor mental ability/disability
In normal infants developmental milestones such as eye – hand coordination and visual tracking occur at predictable ages. Intellectual development and motor development go together, consider the presence of primitive reflexes in a new born which would control gross movements. These primitive reflexes normally fade away as the child’s nervous system develops giving rise to fine motor control, like picking up an object with your thumb and index finger – intrinsic muscles/reflexology muscles!
Chronic pain may lead or be associated to CNS sensitization. These higher levels from where pain is expressed are in charge of fine movement too, which in turn is expressed through intrinsic muscles that also exist in our feet/hands. When we apply Reflexology, like it or not, we are also offering stimulus to the maps, possibly readjusting the maps and desensitizing the CNS. Also of importance, is that the body relies a great deal on the mechanoreceptors of the feet for proprioception adjusting in turn its entire posture accordingly. In both cases it is like formatting your pc.

Πολεμιστής ή θεραπευτής? ...ή και τα δύο?

The story of the security escort/reflexologist in the Indian Ocean.
Το κείμενο στα Ελληνικά στο τέλος.
Teacher good day!
I send you some pictures with an African fisherman who I offered reflexology too after a 50 kilo fish fell on his back while he was gathering fishing nets. 
I will tell you the story from the beginning.

At the moment I work as security escort on a tuna fishing boat in the Indian Ocean. Many of the crew members are African and the nets are brought up with the use of a crane. Sometimes the fish get caught up in the nets and they can suddenly fall out of them due to the movements thus falling from 7-8 meters high. One unlucky African while taking care of the nets the crane was lifting, and putting them in order, went to gather a fish that had just fallen to place with the other fish. At that moment he did not notice another fish that was being lifted by the crane and that unfortunately fell on his back. You can imagine that the fisherman lay unconscious on the nets for 10 minutes. The captain stopped the fishing and went to see what had happened. After a while they lifted him and took him to his cabin to lie down.

The captain gave him a cream to apply on his back, which he took back and I gave him one
cream I had with me, sport gel. The captain saw this and gave it back to me and said do not give him anything. As you know teacher the captain is the highest authority on the ship and of course whatever he orders must be obeyed without objections. I wanted to offer him therapy but this was difficult because if anyone saw me the captain would find out and I would be in serious trouble. So I was waiting for the opportunity and one day when I had finished my job I saw him in the corridor holding on from the banister heading for the toilet and I said to him “come to my cabin now”. Inside my cabin was sleeping another member of our security team with whom I had some differences and if he had seen me offering therapy he would have told our team leader and then the captain would know and then the company would reprimand me for not obeying.

Initially I placed him on chair and took his right foot because he had hurt himself on his right
side and there I found three big crystals on the low back area medially. I had never felt crystals like this before, they were big like mount Olympus, I was shocked. I started fondling them and then I said we do not have much time to our disposal and I have to do something fast, painful and efficient. He answered “OK ….!” Obviously the poor man without knowing what awaited him. I asked him to take a deep breath and once he did it I started pressing hard on the crystals medially. The poor man wanted to shout but did not; he choked his cry so my colleague would not hear who was sleeping. A tear came from his eye. He said electricity went through from where I pressed him up to his waist. The crystals had vanished and I immediately went to the other foot where I found another two smaller ones and I did the same again. The result was that the next day he could walk and move more freely.

The pain had reduced and he thanked me 500 times so I told him to stop before someone saw
us. Teacher I send you the pictures the poor man took with his cell phone and gave to me so you can see and for you to have because a secret operation was planned in order for this to happen and this makes them rare. You may show them wherever you want. Thank you teacher, take care and send many greetings to teacher Gianniotis.

Δάσκαλε καλημέρα! Σου στέλνω δυο φωτογραφίες με έναν αφρικανό ψαρά που του έκανα Ρεφλεξολογία μετά από ένα ψάρι 50 κιλών που έπεσε στην πλάτη του καθώς μάζευε τα δίχτυα.
Θα στα πάρω από την αρχή. Αυτήν την στιγμή δουλεύω ασφάλεια στα καράβια του Ινδικού Ωκεανού και το καράβι που φυλάω και ταξιδεύω είναι αλιευτικό και ψαρεύει τόνους. Πολλοί από το πλήρωμα είναι αφρικανοί και τα δίχτυα τα σηκώνει γερανός αλλά κάποιες φορές κάποια ψάρια γαντζώνονται στα δίχτυα και μπορεί να ξεπιαστεί με την κίνηση που γίνεται και πέσει από μεγάλο ύψος 7-8 μέτρα.
Ένας φουκαράς Αφρικανός καθώς τακτοποιούσε τα δίχτυα αυτά που σήκωνε ο γερανός και τα έβαζε με σειρά, πέφτει ένα μεγάλο ψάρι και πήγε να το πάρει για να το βάλει μαζί με όλα τα υπόλοιπα, εκείνη την ώρα όμως δεν είδε ένα άλλο ψάρι που σήκωνε ο γερανός και έπεσε επάνω στην πλάτη του καθώς έπιανε το άλλο. Απ’ ότι καταλαβαίνεις ο άνθρωπος έμεινε ξαπλωμένος επάνω στα δίχτυα 10 λεπτά αναίσθητος του κόπηκε η ανάσα, σταμάτησε το ψάρεμα, ο καπετάνιος τα παράτησε όλα και πήγε να δει τι έγινε και σε τι κατάσταση βρίσκονταν. Μετά από λίγο τον πήραν σηκωτό οι υπόλοιποι και τον πήγαν στην καμπίνα του να ξαπλώσει. Ο καπετάνιος του έδωσε μια αλοιφή να βάλει στην πλάτη του την οποία του την πήρε μετά και εγώ του έδωσα να βάλει μια αλοιφή που είχα την sport gel. Ο καπετάνιος την είδε και μου την επέστρεψε και μου λέει να μην του δώσεις τίποτα.
Απ’ ότι ξέρεις δάσκαλε ο καπετάνιος είναι εξουσία στο καράβι και φυσικά ότι πει πρέπει να εκτελεστεί χωρίς αντιρρήσεις, εγώ ήθελα να του κάνω θεραπεία αλλά ήταν πολύ δύσκολο κάτι τέτοιο γιατί εάν με έβλεπε κάποιος θα το μάθαινε ο καπετάνιος και θα είχα σοβαρό πρόβλημα. Έτσι λοιπόν καιροφυλακτούσα και μια μέρα μόλις τελείωσα την δουλειά μου τον βλέπω στον διάδρομο πιάνοντας το κάγκελο για να πάει τουαλέτα και του λέω έλα στην καμπίνα μου τώρα. Μες στην καμπίνα μου κοιμόνταν εκείνη την στιγμή ένα ακόμα μέλος της ομάδας ασφαλείας με τον οποίο είχαμε κάποιες διαφορές και αν με έβλεπε να του κάνω θεραπεία θα πήγαινε και θα το έλεγε στον ομαδάρχη μας και μετά θα το μάθαινε και ο καπετάνιος και μετά η εταιρεία και θα είχα επίπληξη γιατί παράκουσα.
Αφού τον έβαλα σε ένα κάθισμα του παίρνω πρώτα το δεξί πόδι γιατί είχε χτυπήσει περισσότερο στην δεξιά πλευρά και βρίσκω 3 μεγάλους κρυστάλλους στην περιοχή της μέσης και προς την εσωτερική πλευρά. Τέτοιους κρυστάλλους δεν είχα ξανανιώσει, ήταν σαν τον Όλυμπο μεγάλοι έπαθα σοκ. Άρχισα να τους χαϊδεύω στην αρχή και μετά του λέω ότι δεν έχουμε πολύ χρόνο στην διάθεση μας και πρέπει να σου κάνω κάτι γρήγορο, επίπονο, και αποτελεσματικό. Μου λέει ΟΚ R...! Χωρίς όμως να γνωρίζει ο καημένος τι τον περίμενε. Του λέω πάρε μια βαθιά και μεγάλη ανάσα, μόλις το κάνει άρχισα να πιέζω τους κρυστάλλους με μεγάλη πίεση προς τα μέσα. Ο καημένος ήθελε να φωνάξει και κρατήθηκε, έπνιξε την κραυγή του για να μην μας ακούσει ο συνάδελφος μου που κοιμόταν και του έφυγε ένα δάκρυ. Μου λέει με χτύπησε ένα ρεύμα από εκεί που με πίεσες μέχρι την μέση μου. Οι κρύσταλλοι υποχώρησαν και αμέσως πήγα και στο άλλο πόδι όπου και εκεί είχε 2 μικρότερους κρυστάλλους του ξαναέκανα την ίδια διαδικασία. Το αποτέλεσμα την άλλη μέρα ήταν ότι μπορούσε να περπατήσει και να κινηθεί πιο ελεύθερα. Ο πόνος υποχώρησε και με ευχαρίστησε 500 φορές του λέω φτάνει τώρα φύγε πριν σε δει κανείς. Σου στέλνω δάσκαλε και τις φωτογραφίες που με τράβηξε με το κινητό του ο καημένος και μετά μου τις έδωσε και έτσι στις στέλνω να τις δεις και να τις έχεις γιατί πιστεύω ότι θα ήταν καλό να τις έχεις γιατί έγινε ολόκληρη μυστική επιχείρηση για να γίνει ότι έγινε και πραγματικά είναι σπάνιες. Μπορείς ελεύθερα να τις δείξεις όπου θες. Σε ευχαριστώ πολύ δάσκαλε να προσέχεις και να δώσεις πολλούς χαιρετισμούς και στον δάσκαλο τον Γιαννιώτη.
