Once I saw this picture I remembered the name "Kunlun mountains". it's a shame that the tatoo is not exactly where the acupuncture point is.
It is still a good visual to remember though.

Αντανακλαστικα σημεια για την υποφυση. Σελ.10
...εχοντας αυτο κατα νου, το πρωτο μερος που εξετάζω οταν ερχεται καποιος σε μενα ζητωντας βοήθεια, ειναι σε τι βαθμο υπαρχει ευαισθησια στην περιοχη σχετικη με τον αυχενα. Στην περιπτωση που υπαρχει αρκετη ενταση στον αυχενα, γνωριζω οτι εχει μειωθει η αιματωση του εγκεφαλου σε καποιο βαθμο, και εχοντας αυτο κατα νου και η υποφυση θα υποφερει σε κάποιο βαθμο, έτσι δεν ειναι? Δεν θα μπορέσει να λειτουργήσει 100% ο συγκεκριμένος αδένας εαν εχει μειωθει η φυσιολογικη ροη αίματος προς εκείνον.
Να θυμαστε λοιπόν, οταν σας επισκέπτεται κάποιος, σίγουρα θα εργαστείτε στην έξω επιφάνεια του μεγάλου δαχτύλου προς το δεύτερο δάχτυλο όπου και βρίσκεται η αντανακλαστική περιοχή για τον αυχένα.
Σελίδα 53
Τωρα, μιλωντας για αυτη την περιοχη η οποια ειναι πελματιαια και κατω απο την περιοχη που οι ανθρωποι παρουσιάζουν κότσι, θα αντιμετωπίζετε ένταση στις ωμοπλάτες και για οποια συμφόρηση στην ανώτερη θωρακική περιοχή η οποία και πιθανόν να ευθύνεται για την διαταραχή του θυρεοειδή σε αυτούς τους ασθενείς. Να θυμάστε οταν θα εργάζεστε με περιστατικά θυρεοειδή, θα σπρώξουμε το πόδι πίσω, θα εργαστούμε βαθιά στην άρθρωση του μεγάλου δαχτύλου σε κάθε πόδι επειδή έχει δύο λοβούς ο θυρεοειδής, ο δεξιός λοβός στο δεξό πόδι και ο αριστερός λοβός στο αριστερό πόδι.
Τα αποσπάσματα είναι από το 3ο βιβλίο της Ίνγκαμ. Πρόκειται για ομιλία που πραγματοποίησε κατά την διάρκεια σεμιναρίου της στο ξενοδοχείο Κονραντ Χίλτον 7 Δεκεμβρίου 1958.
Πολλά λέγονται κατά την εκπαίδευση της ρεφλεξολογίας, τα πιο πολλά δεν είναι σύμφωνα με την διδασκαλία της Ίνγκαμ.
Αυτό το βιβλίο ξεκαθαρίζει τα πράγματα.
Το ίδιο θα κάνουμε και εμείς.
Καλές διακοπές 

healing potential of piercings

Acupuncturists have long studied the healing potential of piercings— particularly their ability to relieve migraines and help stave off allergies. Indeed, according to the book Mysteries of The Ear, published by Assouline and written by the neuropharmacologist Dr Nadia Volf, the ancient Egyptians, Romans and Persians practised auricular acupuncture to aid everything from digestion to eyesight and menstrual problems, while the reason pirates wore a ring in one earlobe is that, according to folkloric tradition, the piercing enhanced their vision.

What do the rich and powerfull know that we do not...?

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump favored the use of Reflexology to relieve pain and stress during the birth of his baby in 1993.

Marla's breathing/birthing coach Aiko Aiyana offered the Reflexology.
"I was very nervous, because she was in a lot of pain," Trump said. "I tried to convince her to take something, but she wouldn't. I asked the doctor to convince her, but he knew Marla was determined not to take any drugs. She's so strong, such a strong woman. I'm amazed."
Aiyana assisted in the birth and massaged Marla using reflexology, a foot-massage that correlates to various points in the body to relieve pain and stress.
Do you think he still favors it?

Expression of the endocannabinoid receptors in human fascial tissue

Feel high after a massage? Receptors for our body’s own cannabinoid substances are present in fascia according to a recent research from the Stecco group in the University of Padova in Italy.
Endocannabinoids are "the body’s own cannabinoid system" , bodily substances which have biological effects similar to those of marijuana, they are often found in human brain and the nervous system. Studies showed that stimulating the receptors can relieve pain and suppress inflammation. Research has demonstrated that patients with fibromyalgia report that marijuana use lowers pain and improves health-related quality of life, making researchers suspect that endocannabinoid receptors, which also mediate the effects of marijuana, might exist in tissues other than the brain and immune cells.
Their presence was also previously reported in myofascial tissue, suggesting that the endocannabinoid system may help resolve myofascial trigger points. However, the expression of CB1 (cannabinoid receptor 1) and CB2 (cannabinoid receptor 2) in human fascia has not yet been established. This study published in the European Journal of Histochemistry, is the first to establish this relationship.
The auhors extracted fascia lata, the deep fascia of the thigh, from 11 volunteers who had orthopedic surgery, and then isolated the main cell type of the fascia, called fibroblasts. They found both types of receptors,CB1 and CB2, in these cells. Examining whole tissue levels of the two receptors, researchers noted somewhat higher levels, indicating that the receptors may also be present in other cell types.
The authors said that "The presence of CB1 and CB2 receptors in fascial fibroblasts suggests their possible role in modulation of fascial pain. The fascial pain is usually related to a fascial inflammation and/or a fascial fibrosis, and both could be related to an alteration to the endocannabinoid system. Indeed the activation of CB1 and CB2 receptors is able to suppress pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1beta e TNF-alpha and to increase anti-inflammatory cytokines, and provide an anti-fibrotic activity. "
"It is also possible that the endocannabinoid system inside the deep fasciae is stimulated during manipulative treatments and exercises. A previous sudy by McPartland et al. demonstrated that after osteopathic manipulation treatment the serum level of anandamide increase 168% over pretreatment levels and Gamelin et al. demonstrated that chronic exercise is able to modify the tissue levels of endocannabinoids. Besides, it is known that the connective tissue is one of the principal target of the stretching, causing the remodeling of the cytoskeleton of the fibroblasts and a modulation of the inflammation-regulation mechanisms within connective tissue. Consequently, we can suppose that specific exercises or fascial treatments could be able to stimulate the fascial fibroblasts and consequently to modulate the endocannabinoid system and the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines.

Joseph Corvo

In my practice in recent years ,and again last week with a new wonderful female client of 85 years of age, told me that they were treated by reflexologist/zone therapist, the famous and legendary Joseph Corvo. They all report the same, and with raised eyebrows and with a passion exclaim "he is amazing...and it really works (reflexology) ... my God it was painful"...My client told me last week , "yes he used a probe (stick) ...and I had to tell him to ease up...but my goodness it worked like magic." I remember Tony Porter , my teacher telling me stories about Joe,... hearing these stories is fascinating. Apparently Joseph , now well into his 90's is still in practice - awesome. Maybe I will go and seek him out 

"The whole idea," he explains, "is that the body works on electro-magnetic lines - if you can imagine lines of electricity flowing down from your head to your feet. Terminal nerve endings are in all extremities of the body: feet, hands, face, ears, head. Pressure-point massage on these areas releases electro- magnetic pulses throughout the body. These forces act with regenerating powers in glands and organs, upon whose efficiency our health"
Joseph Corvo
"Corvo says he inherited his powers as a natural healer from his mother. He recalls, aged seven, putting his hands on people with pains. ....."It wouldn't matter what kind of complaint it was, I simply put my hands over the area. My mother was a healer and I found I had the gift too," he said.
For more information on the above quotes and an article "Pain-free hangovers at your fingertips" see link
Joseph Corvo well renowned to be one of the world’s leading zone therapists who adopts Dr. Fitzgerald’s theory and is in practice today. He has worked on some of the most high profile clients from the film and media industry as well as politicians and royalty. It is said that Princess Diana received three treatments each week from Joseph Corvo. He also authored seven zone therapy books.
Discretion does not allow him to reveal which members of the royal family he numbers among his clients...however it is known:
1985 -National Inquirer reports that Prince Charles is hooked on reflexology therapy, which involves clearing the body’s 10 vertical energy channels by massaging different areas of the feet.
1997-Newsweek reports that Princess Diana has foot reflexology three times a week.
1998-Ladies Home Journal reports that the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, is a client of Joseph Corvo, practitioner of the “so-called discipline of zone therapy”. The treatment involves massaging fifteen specific nerve endings on the face, which are said to revitalize eleven areas of the body

Video of UP policeman getting foot massage at police station sparks outrage

The appalling video of a UP Police sub-inspector getting a foot massage at the police station has gone viral online, while sparking a huge outcry among Netizens – and quite justifiably so.
The video, apparently shot in July, at the Mohanlalganj police station shows sub-inspector Ram Yagya Yadav getting a foot massage by a man, while squatting on the floor, near him. Yadav seems to be casually talking on the phone, and other officials were going about their work as usual as if there was nothing wrong with what was going on.
The police reportedly said it was not clear whether the person giving the foot massage was a complainant or a detainee, nevertheless, the video has drawn many angry reactions after being posted online.

Επισκεφτηκα το gazebo στην παραλία και ειχε μία αφίσα που εγραφε Ρεφλεξολογία με μεγάλα γράμματα και μασάζ με πιο μικρά.
Δεν γνωριστήκαμε εκείνη την ημέρα γιατί δεν ήταν εκεί.
Βοηθός είναι μόνο, ειναι και ρεφλεξολόγος, δεν ξέρω.
Ξέρω ότι ειναι η 2η περιπτωση εκει επάνω και οτι δημιουργείται προηγούμενο.
Καθόλου καλό.
Ενδιαφέρον εχει και η τελευταία παράγραφος του άρθρου.
Επίσης, να ενημερώσω ότι βάσει του νόμου συνένοχος θεωρείται πλέον και ο ασθενής. Αν κάποιος εν αγνοία του ή όχι λάβει τέτοιες παροχές, και η υπόθεση πάει στα δικαστήρια, θα είναι και ο ίδιος υπόλογος.
