One of the most defining physical characteristics of humanity, the hands contain reflex zones and pressure points related to the systems and organs of the body just like the feet. The reflex zones and points of the hands present the most effective means of treating psychological and neurological disorders due to their sophisticated relationship with the brain. Applying her ground-breaking combination of reflexology and craniosacral therapy to the hands, Dr. Martine Faure-Alderson explains how to use hand reflexology to treat the brain and each of the body's systems, from the digestive system to the human energetic system. She provides precise full-color mapped hand diagrams illustrating the exact placement of the points according to the bones of the hands, the result of more than 40 years of research and clinical practice. She explains how to use the occipital zones of craniosacral therapy to pinpoint which zones and points on the hands to treat. Examining the psychological level of brain-hand interactions, the author reveals how neurological dysfunctions and mental disorders respond more readily to hand reflexology than to other forms of therapies. She explains how many physical ailments have a psychological component and how reflexology automatically triggers the release of endorphins by working directly on the autonomic nervous system.

ALTERNATIVE HEALTH / NEW AGECombining the healing energy of crystals with reflexology and acupressure therapies, Gemstone Reflexology offers a holistic approach to triggering the body's self-healing energies to deal with a large number of mental and physical disorders, ranging from heartache to heart disease. The treatment is based on using eight gem sticks--amethyst, aventurine, fluorite, heliotrope, rock crystal, rose quartz, rutile quartz, and sodalite--that allow users to direct the healing power of the crystals to activate designated pressure points. Every gemstone has specific healing properties. Amethyst, for example, alleviates pain and tension and when applied to the pressure points corresponding to the back muscles can significantly reduce back pain or even relieve it altogether; aventurine helps in the treatment of skin disorders; and heliotrope strengthens the immune system. When crafted into sticks, these gems intensify energy in the pointed end and distribute energy broadly through the blunt end. This enables the practitioner to apply the perfect amount of pressure at the appropriate location, combining into a powerful healing force the energies of the crystal with those released by the pressure on the reflexology or acupressure points. Gemstone Reflexology contains illustrated instructions that show the treatment areas for a wide range of conditions, including earaches, insomnia, joint pain, colds and flu, low blood pressure, stomach problems, menstrual cramps, and depression. NORA KIRCHER is a natural health practitioner and teacher who has her own clinic where she treats adults and children using ear acupressure and bioresonance. She has practiced gemstone reflexologyfor many years and has written fifteen books on diet and alternative health, published in her native Germany.
A full-color guide to using crystal wands in bodywork and energy medicine * Explores the healing properties and indications for more than 70 crystal wands * Provides step-by-step instructions for crystal-wand techniques in massage and reflexology, in energy work such as aura tuning and chakra balancing, and for protection, power, and relaxation The healing powers of crystals and gemstones were known more than eight hundred years ago by the mystic Hildegard von Bingen and as far back as two millennia ago by the Greek physician Dioskurides. In this full-color illustrated guide, Ewald Kliegel explains the benefits of incorporating crystal wands into your bodywork and healing practice and details the techniques of doing so. The author explains how the versatile shape of a crystal wand amplifies the crystal's energetic effects and offers advantages in massage and reflexology over other shapes of crystals and stones. The larger rounded end can act as a crystal sphere for massaging knots or large areas, whereas the tapered end is ideal for stimulating reflex zones, targeting acupressure points, and tracing meridian lines. Starting with the foundational set of three wands to begin your toolkit: Rock Crystal, Red Jasper, and Aventurine, the author examines the healing properties and indications for more than 70 crystal wands. He shows how Amethyst clears the head, relaxes muscle tension, benefits the lungs, nerves, and skin, aids digestion and constipation, helps dissolve blockages and addictive behavior, and combats fatigue. He explains how crystal wands can be divided into 3 energetic categories--neutral, stimulating, or balancing--and details how to select the proper wand or wands for each healing situation. The author provides step-by-step instructions for incorporating crystal wands into massage and reflexology treatments, for their use in energy medicine, specifically for internal tuning of the aura and balancing the chakras, and for using crystal wands for protection, power, and relaxation.

Applying the fundamental principles of reflexology to the entire body, he provides more than 30 full-color maps of reflex zones from head to toe, including reflex zone systems of the ears, mouth, tongue, fingernails, and torso. The author details reflexology techniques for each reflex zone and discusses how to incorporate essential oils and gemstones during active touch and reflexology sessions, including the benefits of crystal massage for post-stroke recovery. Drawing on international advancements in reflexology, including the work of craniosacral reflexologist Martine Faure-Alderson, Russian researcher Alexander Kachan, Chinese biologist Zhang Yingquing, and Korean physician Tae Woo Yoo, Kliegel examines how to integrate Yin-Yang massage strokes, metacarpal reflexology techniques, Korean Hand treatments, and craniosacral massage principles into reflexology treatments to restore energetic balance, relieve pain, and support healing. Providing a truly holistic and integrative approach to reflexology, Kliegel reveals many different hands-on paths to healing that embrace the energetic interconnections of mind and body.
