Moving the energy. Meeting place of East and West.
Introducing the Wand Reflex Method and Constitiutional Therapy.
Includes color hand and foot pull-out chart.
Uniquely this book by Lilian Tibshraeny-Morten brings together reflexology and the five phase correspondences of meridian therapy and constitutional types.
The first section of the book includes basic reflexology therapy, foot and hand techniques, anatomy, physiology, and pathology.
It gives the reader an in-depth account of the structure of the feet as well as biomechanical factors and reflexology treatment protocols.
The second section covers the basic concepts of Chinese medicine and includes specific points and interactions of the five elements and diagnosis and assessment according to pattern, constitutional type, and diagnostic protocols.
Finally, assessment tools and treatment methods are presented that facilitate their integration into an existing or new practice with the use of a wand such as a rounded-end polished stone to deliver pressure or stimulus to a selected reflex therapy point.
A tremendous number of colorful photos, charts and tables and liberal use of symbols and icons that accompany the instructional and clinical material presented make this a valuable study companion.
