Reflexology methods are based on a combination of the ancient experience of Eastern peoples and modern medical knowledge, which speaks of the human body as a single self-regulating system. And in it, the state of one link influences the state of the other by way of nervous reflex interaction. This is what we observe when stimulating the nerve endings of biologically active points on the surface of the body.
There are a lot of reflexology methods. All of them differ from each other in the nature of the irritating factor, its degree, damage or preservation of the integrity of the skin.
Acupuncture (acupuncture, acupuncture, microaccupuncture, polymicroaccupuncture) is characterized by a mechanical effect on proprio and exteroreceptors with damage to the skin and subcutaneous fat.
Manopressopuncture (shiatsu, acupressure, acupressure) - mechanical impact on the extero- and proprioceptors with the hands without violating the integrity of the skin. Vacuum pressopuncture - cupping massage. Aplicopressure - massage with a special ball.
Thermopuncture and thermal acupuncture is a mechanical effect on the indicated receptors with moxibustion (wormwood cigars) or heating (warm needles), respectively. Cryopuncture is the effect of liquid nitrogen on biologically active points.
Electroacupuncture and electropuncture are methods of influencing extero- and proprioceptors using alternating or direct current (through special needles or applicators).
There is also phonopuncture (ultrasound exposure), laser puncture (laser beam), heliopuncture (UFO puncture), pharmacopuncture (introduction of drugs into special points), magnetopuncture (exposure to magnetic fields).
