Neuro Reflex Acupuncture is an acupuncture practice according to modern scientific medicine. Unlike classical Chinese medicine - based on the theory of energy meridians - reflexology is based on the fundamentals of physiology, pathology, and clinical medicine.
Through stimulation with needles on soft tissue surface, it is possible through the neuro reflex mechanism, that involves the autonomic nervous system, to obtain a therapeutic effect on organs and functions that are inserted in this circuit reflection. An example of therapeutic reflection on the autonomic nervous system is the reduction in heart rate with the compression of the eyeballs. The same neuro reflex mechanism can positively affect many functions of organs and viscera.
Reflex therapy can cure a large number of diseases without the use of drugs. The effectiveness of the reflex response and the ability to maintain it long-term depends mainly on the nature, severity, and duration of the disease. Reflex therapy consists of the use of acupuncture needles and syringe needles of different sizes which allows us to inject simple saline solution (...) In certain cases, the concomitant use of drugs is possible in small quantities and the drugs are diluted in saline to achieve a more energetic and immediate effect. However, a small injection of local anesthetic is needed at times to treat the most sensitive areas (i.e. the ball of the foot). The choice of frequency and duration of the session, the number of needles, and the diameter of the needle used is at the discretion of the physician. The treatment cycle depends on the nature of the disease and the individual response of the patient. It is obvious that an acute disease requires a number of sessions and a lower frequency compared to a chronic disease. Normally, a course of treatment requires a cycle which consists six to seven sessions with the frequency still determined based on the severity of the disease and the patient's needs. The benefit obtained from a cycle of acupuncture reflex can range from simple relief to a complete and permanent resolution of the disease.
