Reflexology and silver bridges
Reflexology - is the ancient Chinese medical system, which is based on the correct movement of chi energy on special channels (meridians). Impact on located along the meridian points on the body surface allows you to change during the Chi. This in turn may have some effect on the various organs and tissues.
According to modern concepts reflexology is based on reflex reactions, which occur when exposed to certain reflex points on the surface of the skin or mucous membranes of humans. When exposed to such points nerve impulse goes to the central nervous system (CNS), which is responsible in a certain way. For example, giving a "team" of blood vessels (they expand or constrict) the smooth muscle of the internal organs (it can relax, resulting in pain relief), stimulates the secretion of various biologically active substances that have some effect on organs and tissues, etc. .

, Moxibustion. Including techniques have prolonged exposure to the point of application by metal plates. Thus on the skin of the reflexogenic zones superimposed small (less than 3 cm in diameter) metal plates, attach them plaster and left for 3-5 days. Metal when applied to the skin has, as a general (metal ions penetrate into the blood), and local action. Local action is developed by mechanical stimulation of the skin receptors and education at the interface between the metal and micro-fabric.
For application of the plate may be used made of different metals, including high grade silver. Silver accelerates the recovery processes in the tissues (wounds, ulcers heal faster), activation of metabolic processes (one of the ways to treat obesity), resorption of connective tissue (scar after injuries and surgeries), a decrease in overt and covert edema, restore normal functioning of the central nervous system.

Silver bridges are improved and slightly simplified application procedure metals. Silver bridges also superimposed along the meridians, but they need to capture the entire abnormal area and strengthened in the area of healthy tissue. This forms a sort of bridge between the healthy tissues, which are located under the affected tissue.
At the conclusion of the developer of the method I. Vasilyeva silver bridges "the correction of the work of the meridians, restore the integrity of management in the areas of stitches, scars, wrinkles and points of scoliosis, strengthens the weak points in the circulatory system, lymph and nerve control, eliminate venous congestion and ischemia tissue" in different bodies.
