hands and feet

Interesting What This Foot Reflexology Chart And Other Charts Show ........When those foot massagers at the shopping complex, massaged the sole of my feet, sometimes it feels painful and sometimes it doesn't. Their explaination for the pain is that the respected organ is not in its optimal condition. -------

What Is Reflexology?----Ten Step Hand Reflexology Self Treatment------Reflexology hand map---- Hand reflexology - a calming touch----Reflexology: The Hand and Foot Massage---- Hand Reflexology----Reflexology Fridge magnets Hand---- Recently, hand reflexology is receiving some well overdue attention. An Egyptian papyrus dated 2330 B.C. depicts both hand and foot reflexology, so, both have existed since ancient times----
Reflexology’s principles believe that there are reflexes, or responsive zones in the feet and hands that correspond to every part and organ of the body. So by working on these reflexes with pressure, massage and manipulation, there are three main benefits. It brings back normal functioning of all the organs and glands. It improves nerve function and the flow of blood. And lastly, it brings about a state of relaxation ---- Hand Reflexology To Provide Self Healing And Reduce Stress!--------

the whole of the hand is a sensory organ: touch and prehension as fundamentary fucntion of the hand ------The finger tip skin was found to have more than twice the nerve fibre density in the papillary dermis than the skin of the palm, and the number of Meissner corpuscles in the finger tip was also higher than in the palm. We found a reduction in innervation density with increasing age in the dermis, however, that was not the case for the epidermis. The innervation of the epidermis showed high interindividual variability and unlike the papillary dermis did not display any pattern of distribution in the hand.------

Fingertip skin conformance accounts, in part, for differences in tactile spatial acuity in young subjects, but not for the decline in spatial acuity with aging-------Similarity of fingertip skin blood flow patterns recorded by the model-based thermal clearance and large area laser Doppler probes---- Reliability of fingertip skin-surface temperature and its related thermal measures as indices of peripheral perfusion in the clinical setting of the operating theatre----The mechanical properties of the fingertip skin are very important when studying dexterous manipulation. These properties are strongly influenced by the level of skin hydration. Currently, there is no device capable of measuring skin moisture during object manipulation.----

Tactile sensory substitution systems, To understand tactile sensory substitution it is essential to understand some basic physiology of the tactile receptors of the skin. There are six basic types of tactile receptors: Pacinian corpuscle, Meissner’s corpuscle, Ruffini endings, Merkel nerve endings, free nerve endings, and tactile disks. These receptors are mainly characterized by their ability to adapt to stimuli and their thresholds.[10] Because of the relative high thresholds of most these receptors and their rapid adaptation to stimulus, the human body requires rapidly changing tactile stimulation systems.[11]------OUR SENSE OF TOUCH: TWO-POINT DISCRIMINATION----Touch receptors in the skin----
