1. Improvement of blood circulation
The feet are located at lowest part of the body and because they are very distal to theheart, it is fairly easy for the feet to suffer from peripheral circulation disorders and bloodsupply insufficiency. Venous drainage obstruction creates metabolic waste deposits in thefeet, and these deposits are transformed into toxins. This can involve the joints and organsand give rise to arthritis or other organ lesions. With stimulation to the reflective zones, thedeposited waste can be removed and excreted by kidney due to enhanced blood circulation.The improvement of foot blood circulation can promote the whole body blood circulation.
2. Regulation of organs' function
Stimulation of reflective zones can regulate organ function and delay the organ agingprocess through nerve reflection. The heart function can be improved by reflective zonestimulation. For example, patients suffering from tachycardia, bradycardia and arrthymia,can regain a normal heart beat by this therapy, which is safer than medication.
3. Improvement of endocrine function
The function of endocrine glands can be regulated by stimulating the correspondingreflective zones, and will have a long-lasting effect on the human body, because thehormones secreted by the glands will be distributed to whole body through the bloodcirculation. For example, the pituitary gland will secrete more growth hormone due tostimulation of its reflective zone in foot, which can in turn stimulate hormone secretion ofother glands benefiting the body. The recurrent appropriate stimulation to pituitary glandreflective zone has good effect on the body condition, especially for elderly patients withendocrine disorders and children to improve their growth.
4. Enhancement of immunology system
The immunological system can be enhanced by stimulation of spleen reflective regionand lymphatic reflective zones. For immunological system dysfunctions, as diseasepresentation, decrease or deficiency can result in various diseases. By stimulation ofreflective zones, foot relfexotherapy can improve the immunological function and havea good effect on low immune system functions and a range of allergies, such as asthma,allergic rhinitis, and urticaria etc.

Preface
Foot reflexotherapy( Foot massage), one of the important componentsof Chinese Medicine, is a nature therapy with high efficiency, Simplemanipulation and no side-effect, which is created by Shufu, a famous ChineseMedicine doctor in ancient time. This therapy does work effectively whenthe foot reflective zone is pressed by doctors. Since Tang and Song Dynasty,foot reflexotherapy is excluded from main stream of Chinese Medicine due tofeudal customs that showing naked foot is considered as inelegant behavior.It has been partly lost because the doctors didn't want to touch the foot, andonly spread among certain local areas. Since the opening and reform policy,foot reflxotherapy became popularized again in China. Chinese governmenthas put emphasis on foot reflxotherapy and established a national academicfoot reflxotherapy association. Until now it has been developed into a newbranch of health prevention.
After my graduation, by chance I was engaged in foot reflxotherapy,and have been deeply fascinated by its amazing effect. Practiced for nearly20 years, I accumulated experiences by treating more than 10 thousandspatients. Based on our clinical practices, we wrote this book Practical FootReflexotherapy with the aim to introduce this therapy to more people.
One of the features of this book is the illustration of treating each disease.The readers can do the treatment for themselves and friends following theinstruction. Unlike medication, foot reflexotherapy is effective, economic andWithout any harmful results.
