Foot therapy is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine. It contains a number of unique therapeutic methods established and developed over a very long historical period of medical practice by many physicians of successive dynasties. Because the foot is closely linked with the internal organs through meridians, and fixed acupoints and corresponding areas of the internal organs are located on the foot, different stimuli applied to those acupoints and areas on foot can prevent and treat diseases, and improve and preserve health. Foot therapy methods are easy to learn and can cure many diseases, without any harmful side effects.
Employing the basic theories of traditional Chinese medicine and the modern medical knowledge and rich clinical experience of the authors, this book was written for the enlightenment of foreign readers so that they might understand, learn, and use this wonderful traditional therapy of China.
