Therapeutical - Micro Systems

The Micro-systems from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine 
Scholars from around the Asia led to other people a lot of knowledge about their traditional medicine, starting with the Chinese. Since then, several therapeutic characteristics began to be developed based on concepts in the form of micro-systems. 
These micro-systems were defined to contain systemic basis of acupuncture in small regions of the body as the ear, the palms, the soles of the feet and the "scalp".

In the case of the ear, the ear was developed in several systems according to their origin: the traditional Chinese, French and finally and most recent school Huang Li Chun. 
The Chinese traditional (classical) sets itself the points and locations of the organs, viscera and emotions through the divisions of the nervous system as a whole. 
The French, from the knowledge developed by Paul Nogier around 1951, depicts a different view of China in the aspect of neurophysiology and varying somehow the locations of systemic treatment. 

Finally the school of Huang Chung Li aggregating the values of traditional Chinese medicine as part of the seed placement and does not emphasize the use of needles. 
There are other schools that appear less in the Western world but not of less importance.

Reflexology / Reflexoterapia
The Reflexology is a science and an extremely effective form of massage therapy because it is based on physiological and neurological. It is a specific pressure technique which works on precise reflex points on the feet based on the premise that areas of the feet correspond to all body parts. As the feet represent a microcosm of the body, all organs, glands and other parts are arranged in an arrangement similar to the feet. Phenomenon of microcosmic representation of body parts in different areas of the body are also shown in the iris of the eye, face, ear, spine and hands. However, the corresponding areas of the feet are more specific, making it easier to work with them. Pressure is applied on reflex zones on the fingers and using specific techniques. This causes physiological changes in the body in that their potential to balance the body is stimulated. Thus, the feet can play an important role 
to achieve and maintain better health. The aim of Reflexology is the return of harmony. The most important step for this is to reduce stress and induce relaxation.

The reflex massage of the feet is useful in treating diseases and effective to maintain health and prevent the onset of disease. Health problems can be detected early and treatment given to prevent the development of more serious symptoms. 

The reflex points aims to correct the three negative factors involved in the disease process: congestion, inflammation and tension (Norman, 1991). When it comes to tension, we must remember that it appears independent of the emotions and feelings, ie, a strain also says of the psychological one to be careful. Therefore the reflex points is helpful in bringing material psychotherapies psychotherapist especially important to approach the body and transpersonal. 
We must remember that our feet support our weight all day, so they are subjected to extreme pressure and, above all shoes not suitable, so that there is an imbalance in our axle support. Playing with all our muscles and joints, changing our posture. Thus, we can understand how Reflexology can be useful treatments. 
It is the existence of such therapy since ancient peoples of the Middle East, but there is no certainty when and where he learned such conduct because this conduct was widespread among all peoples.
