The reflex zones of the foot: the nervous system

The nervous system is divided into the central nervous system, consisting of encephalon and spinal cord, responsible for interpreting the received stimuli and sending commands based on past experience and current conditions, and in the peripheral nervous system, composed instead of spinal nerves and cranial nerves, which have the task of transmitting information to various sectors of the body.

The peripheral nervous system, in turn, is divided into the somatic nervous system, which voluntarily controls the response of the muscles, and into the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic) which activates the automatic and involuntary responses responsible for maintaining homeostasis.

We see the treatment of the reflex points of the nervous system on the foot.

The nervous system in the reflex zones of the foot

The complexity of the nervous system finds a thorough and detailed treatment in reflexology .

In a popular way, it is not possible to exhaust this fascinating and varied topic, precisely because the nervous system is the center of every activity of the organism, the control computer. One can act on the results of the behavior of the nervous system by working individually on the individual activated organs.

It is possible, however, to anatomically place the nervous system on the foot, respecting the principles of holistic podalic reflexology : for the organs it is found on the soft parts of the foot and for the nerves instead it is found on the bony corners, particularly reactive and release areas very strong.

The areas of the cranial nerves are found under the fingertip of the big toe of both feet. The epicenters, on the other hand, are located on the medial and lateral points of the distal joints of the other fingers.

The spinal nerves are located on the foot at the vertebral column: from the first phalanx of the big toe along the medial part of the foot, over the entire line that divides the plant from the back, up to the heel.

The autonomic nervous system, in the parasympathetic part, is found on the plant, in the fold of the big toe .

Rescue point in the treatment of the nervous system

The operating sockets of the nervous system on the foot recognize emergency points (rescue points) that refer to the following epicenters:

  • diaphragm : on the plant of both feet, on the articulation between metatarsal and phalanx of the second finger;

  • solar plexus : on the plant of both feet, on the articulation between metatarsal and phalanx of the third finger;

  • heart : on the sole of the left foot, on the joint between the metatarsal and phalanx of the fourth finger;

  • liver : on the right plant, on the joint between the metatarsal and phalanx of the fourth finger;

  • lung : on the plant of both feet, on the joint between the metatarsal and phalanx of the fifth finger.

The epicentric points are easily highlighted when, by gently bending the respective finger towards the back of the foot, the joint is shown in relief.

The nervous system, some more information

The nervous system is the body's control and communication system. It responds to external and internal environmental changes by activating appropriate responses from the muscles and glands.

There are many external stimuli : temperature and light variations, and all that is perceived by the senses. Equally numerous are the internal stimuli : variation in the concentration of oxygen and blood pressure, stretching of the muscles, motility of the organs and their reactions.

It consists of sense receptors, through which it records the variations; of the central nervous system of which encephalon and spinal cord are part; and nerves .
