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 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.
