What are your first movements upon awakening? Some people begin to stretch, others proceed to scratch themselves. Unconsciously, early in the morning, a person may rub certain areas of the skin which are in direct relation with internal organs, systems, or glands. An individual may have some sort of imbalance of energies or disorders in the systems related to these areas. Have you ever noticed that when you try to recall something or concentrate, you tend to rub the skin between the eyebrows. This is the exact location of the memory point. By massaging it you are helping to recall the bit of information you are seeking. By rubbing or caressing a certain skin area that reacts to a stimulation you automatically stimulate an internal media, thus normalizing activities of organs and systems connected with that particular area of the skin. Our entire skin surface can be divided into areas that have information points. They are located under the skin. Skin zones corresponding to these points exhibit reduced resistance and enhanced temperature. Energy exchanges occur through them that are needed to sustain life activity. It is not known for certain where and when data appeared pertaining to channels and points. However, it is presumed that this system of knowledge appeared for the first time in Tibet and therefore gained great prominence in the Oriental. In China energy lines have been named "channels" while in Russia, researcher named Podshebyakin referred to the points on and in the channels, as "biologically active." The majority of these points are located in the crevices of bones, between the ribs and tendons, which protects them from accidental unwanted influences. The human body contains over 1000 points that lie on 14 channels. Approximately X700 of them are on the 12 lines (channels) along which energy circulates. It is through these points that we a human contact the environment surrounds us. Acupuncture, massage, and self-massage of certain points balances energy in channels and normalizes activities of internal organs and systems. Distance between points on the channels is proportional to or equal to the distance between the creases of the second interphalangeal joints of the middle finger. This is called I cun. In women, a can is measured on the right hand, in men, on the left hand.
There is a good old Russian saying: "your health is in your hands." This book offers suggestions about controlling and maintaining one's health by way of the "point massage" method. This method was discovered by the ancient Chinese, and is based on the system of biologically active points on the human body.
PART ONEPain is a sign the body produces to warn us about a potential risk to our health. Immediate corrective steps must be taken to eliminate its cause. In 1920 professor Chiszh said: "Pain is the very first reaction to an irritation that kills tissue. Even subtle irritation such as the touch of a pin or a drop of vinegar can cause pain, but the destruction caused is so minor that sometimes it cannot be detected even with modem technology and research
methods. Pain can be considered a danger sign. It tells the body that should the irritation persist and increase, then the live tissue that makes up the body can transform into dead tissue. Therefore, pain is a messenger in a complex delivery mechanism that uses reflexes as a vehicle to send the central nervous system information about the transformation of live tissue into dead tissue."
Depending on the cause, the following forms of pain can be identified: 1. Superficial pain. This is the result of external irritation. 2. Pain that occurs in the inner organs due to abnormal functioning, or damage. 3. Pain that occurs when pressure is applied to certain points on the skin. These points are projections of the inner organs, and have nerve connections with them. Illness of a given organ begins long before the symptom (pain) becomes apparent, but the pain that emerges when one presses the projection points of the inner organs can serve as an indication of their condition. The methods presented in this book highlight the means of identifying the painful points and their respective organs, followed by an explanation of how to affect these points using massage therapy.It is best to begin your self-diagnosis with the zones of.pointsdrethlaetehdetarto thcheamwoierkiso. f the heart.

The results of research in Reflexotherapy support this theory. There are two types of painful sensations triggered by pressing certain points and biologically active zones. I. Acute superficial pain, triggered by gentle touch or pressure. 2. Dull deep pain, triggered by applying a greater pressure. You should choose the method of affecting a painful point according to the type of pain felt in that point. In case of acute superficial pain use the stimulation (tonification) method. To stimulate a point, press it with your finger in sharp impulsive movement. There are two types of stimulating (tonic) massage: a. The forceful type of stimulating massage method is applied to the points where you feel acute pain. You should press or tap the point with your finger in short, firm, forceful movements 15 times in 15 seconds. Rest for 45 seconds. Repeat this cycle 5 times. Then rest for 2 minutes.
