Seminar description:

There are quite some therapies in which (predominantly) external stimuli aim to influence not only local complaints, but even the more to elicit remote therapeutic effects. The glasses you wear determine the contrasts you see. The relation between external stimulus and local or remote effects are often explained from the therapy specific point of view. Neuroanatomy and neurophysiology help to understand the relation between stimuli and their therapeutic effects as applied within different complementary medicine therapies.

At this seminar we focus on:
* characteristics of reflexological therapies
* neuro-anatomy and neurophysiology
– of spinal cord segments
– of peripheral nerve fibers
– of autonomous nerve system fibers
* the embryological origin of segments
*segmental innervation
* reflexological relations
* some practical implications

After having followed this seminar you can mention …

* Different reflexological therapies,
* Characteristics of reflexological therapies,
* Anatomy and physiology of control loops,
* The origin of segments and what they consist of
* Physiology of reflexological relations,
* that the aimed goal of applied stimuli depends on the nature of these stimuli
* that this contributes to the range of reflexological therapies.
