The 10 hand reflexology zones!

The 10 hand reflexology zones.

In order to understand the basics of hand reflexology properly it is important to become aware of the so-called 10 hand reflexology zones – see picture above.

Even though 10 hand reflexology zones display various parallels with the nerve system, the so-called ‘dermatomes‘ and the meridians (which represent a concept in the Chinese Yin-Yang philosophy); however, the 10 hand reflexology zones represent a system on it’s own. This implicates that the 10 hand reflexology zones do not directly represent any specific system in the anatomy of the human body (this also applies for the 10 reflexology zones in foot reflexology).

Hand reflexology: introduction in a nutshell!


Hand reflexology is similar foot reflexology. Reflexologists believe there are pressure points in the hands, feet & ears that correspond with certain organs of the body. While foot reflexology is much more well-known (google trends foot reflexology is about 5x more popular), the benefits of hand reflexology are obvious: the hands are far more easy accessible for a massage!

Because the fundamentals in hand reflexology and foot reflexology are similar, one can find stricking parallels between hand charts & foot charts.

In this blog I will explore the fundamentals of hand reflexology & hand acupressure via various approaches, including a comparison of various hand reflexology charts.
