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).
