The roots of both reflexology and acupressure can be found in the ancient civlizations of Egypt, India and China as well as among African tribes and Native American Indians. Both therapies stem from the science of pressure points. Therapists believe that by working on a particular point, energy can be stimulated by a reflex action to a related muscle of organ and encourage healing. This illustrated guide to the sciences of reflexology and acupressure examines the evidence drawn from neurology and electo-physics for both therapies, summarizing some of the medical trials which have recently taken place. The book traces the history of the two ancient arts and looks at their relevance to us today. In addition, there is an explanation of hte basic techniques for both therapies. The main body of the book involves easy-to-follow combined treatments for common problems and ailments.
