This form of treatment is new to the West. It is a branch of Ayurvedic medicine, utilizing all aspects of prayer/meditation, dietetics and nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes in conjunction with a specific form of therapy involving the meridians of the body.
A neurotherapeutic practitioner will lay the patient on the floor and, while bearing most of their body weight on two chairs beside the patient, will apply pressure on the back through the feet. Particular trigger or acupressure points will be pushed by specific parts of the practitioner’s feet, thereby stimulating reflex responses and passing energy from the practitioner’s reflexology meridian points directly into meridians in the patient’s back. This treatment is yet to become well established but can be useful for an array of conditions, either on its own or in conjunction with more mainline treatments.
