She is currently writing a book on reflexology.
Reflexology, jin shin jyutsu, Reiki, etc., are obviously not in the same field as conventional, or western allopathic medicine in which a variety of methods are used to treat illness. Conventional medicine, however, is necessary for many reasons. Reflexology is considered to be in the ever-growing family of natural, or alternative medicine.Essentially, reflexology is a science that maps out the reflexes to the entire, or whole human body on the feet and/or the hands. By pressing specific areas (slightly or deeply into the specific muscle) on the feet/hands with your thumb or fingers, every organ, gland, and body part is affected.
What is Alternative Medicine?
Alternative medicine practices are used instead of standard medical treatments. Alternative medicine is distinct from complementary medicine which is meant to accompany, not to replace, standard medical practices. Alternative medical practices are generally not recognized by the medical community as standard or conventional medical approaches.
Alternative medicine, the treatment and prevention of disease by techniques that are regarded by modern Western medicine as scientifically unproven or unorthodox. The term alternative medicine can encompass a wide range of therapies, including chiropractic, homeopathy, acupuncture, herbal medicine, meditation, biofeedback, massage therapy, and various new age therapies such as guided imagery and naturopathy. Although many alternative therapies have long been widely employed in the treatment of disease, the scientifically oriented modern medical establishment has typically been skeptical about, and sometimes strongly opposed to, their use. Despite this, Americans spend billions of dollars on alternative treatments each year. In 1993 the U.S. National Institutes of Health established the Office of Alternative Medicine to examine the merits of such techniques.
Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)
Complementary medicine is usually not taught or used in Western medical schools or hospitals. Complementary medicine includes a large number of practices and systems of health care that, for a variety of cultural, social, economic, or scientific reasons, have not been adopted by mainstream Western medicine.
Complementary medicine is different from alternative medicine. Whereas complementary medicine is used together with conventional medicine, alternative medicine is used in place of conventional medicine. An example of an alternative therapy is using a special diet to treat cancer instead of undergoing surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy that has been recommended by a physician.
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) can include the following:
- Alexander technique,
- Ayurveda (Ayurvedic medicine),
- Chiropractic Medicine,
- Diet Therapy,
- Holistic Cheirology, (Palmistry)
- Holistic Nursing,
- Jin Shin Jyutsu,
