overskrift books reflexology dogs

Books about reflexology for humans have been known for many years. Now this book makes it possible to gain knowledge about reflexology for dogs as well. The book describes the technique and where the dog’s reflex areas are located on the paws. All content is carefully described and complemented with illustrated figures. The dog’s urinary passages, nervous system, digestion, senses, respiratory passages, immune system, circulation, detox system, endocrine system, bones and muscles are some of the content you will find described in the book.

Furthermore, the book provides practical tools to support reflexology treatment such as face reflexology, acupressure, treatments of meridians and homeopathy. In order to understand the location of the reflex areas on the paws, the reader is guided through the principles of human reflexology and how the reflex areas on humans have come to be. It is then shown why and how this knowledge can be transferred to dogs, and how the reflex areas are adjusted to fit the dog’s anatomy and physiology i.e. the reflex areas are mapped out with regard to the differences between humans’ and dogs’ anatomies. Several experts in the veterinary field have contributed to the book with the necessary western knowledge. The reader is introduced to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which constitutes the theoretical background for both reflexology and acupressure. It consists of the 5 Elements, meridians, acupressure points, yin and yang, and mental aspects including the dog’s behavior. Vivian Birlie, a member of the Danish Author’s Society, is an acupuncturist and reflexologist, and has treated both humans and dogs since 1997. As a longtime educator, she has authored a great deal of teaching material. This background along with 16 years of experience in journalism, technique and web at the Danish Broadcasting Corporation, has made this book possible. The book forms the basis of the education for dog reflexologists at Sano Canis, Institute for Reflexology for dogs – educational institution and treatments.
