Stomach Ulcer

Postby Sole_Purpose on Mon Jul 31, 2006 7:27 am

Hi...know of any foot/hand/ear reflexology points to work specifically for stomach ulcers (self-treatment capability)?

TIA, for your help!

Start with stomach for sure, probably give the entire digestive system a go if you have the time. Is it related to nerves possibly? Then maybe add solar plexus and adrenal gland reflexes to the mix. Pituitary reflex is always a good one in cases of pain.

Here is an interactive hand chart and an interactive foot chart that should make reflex location a bit easier for self-help. I don't agree with all of the point locations but they seem to have stomach and pituitary about right. Good luck!

Thanks! ...and thanks too for the chart links.

I've got the book Better Health With Foot Reflexology - The Original Ingham Method - authored by Dwight C. Byers (from massage school). This contains both a foot and hand chart. What's your perspective on those?

Happy to help!

I haven't seen Dwight's chart in awhile, he should be pretty right-on. There are frequent discussions regarding the reflex locations of the heart, kidneys, and many of the cranial reflexes that differ quite wildly from one chart to the next. I guess it depends on which branch of Reflexology you are trained in, I'll be training in my tenth style coming this fall and it is always funny how a new workshop can change your perspective. :)

Fantastic interactive charts! Thanks for the links! :)
