Notes on Hand Reflexology

In the opinion of many experienced reflexologists here, as well as abroad, working on Foot renders better results than working on Hand. But, working on hand can be supplementary to working on foot.

Anatomy of hand is pretty different from that of foot. Almost half of the full length of hand is occupied by fingers, whereas in foot, only about 1/6th of the total length of foot is occupied by fingers. Hence, reflexes below the shoulder line are compressed and accommodated in a comparatively smaller area in hand than that in foot. Reflexes above the shoulder line are spreaded over a wider area in hand. Therefore, it is noticed that sometimes Hand reflexology produces better results for upper parts of the body, i.e. above the diaphragm line.

It is beneficial to massage a little wider area for each reflex, so that no point is missed.

There is an interesting method to learn to find out correct location of a specific reflex on hand. First find out a tender reflex on foot and note the organ it represents. Then, try to locate its corresponding reflex, which will be equally tender, on hand. Thus, by practice, a correct picture of locations of reflexes on Hand will emerge in your mind.

Certain situations require to work on Hand only, e.g. Injured foot or Swollen foot, or Skin disease on foot, or missing foot due to amputation.
The theory of Hand reflexology is the same as that of Foot reflexology in general.
