What is Nerve Reflexology?

Nerve reflexology uses precise points on the bones of the feet rather than on the soft tissue. The reflexologist targets only those areas which are involved in the patient’s condition. You can think of Nerve Reflexology as being rather like Acupuncture, in that very precise points are located which may cause a sharp sensation initially. These points are then held until the sensation passes or until a certain amount of time has passed.

Nerve Reflexology (NR) is an advanced manual treatment method for functional disorders in the musculo-skeletal (movement) and visceral (organs) system . The treatment focuses on the changes in the peripheral nervous system (PNS), the central nervous system (CNS) and autonomous nervous system (ANS) as a cause or as a consequence of tissue damage or potential tissue damage in the body.

It is a “nerve” treatment method due to the application of nerve reflex points on the foot skeleton. It is a “reflexology” therapy due to the application of “reflective” techniques on the PNS, CNS and ANS.

The different techniques are all focused on interfering in the different parts of the nervous system that are involved in the patient’s pain. These parts can be divided in four stages: changes in peripheral, central, autonomous nervous system and psycho-emotional components.
