Reflexology - Reflexology is similar to acupressure in concept, in reflexology certain areas are massaged in the hands and feet in order to clear blockages. The specific areas of the hands and feet correspond to different organs of the body.
Iridology - Iridology is a technique in alternative medicine in which the iridologist looks at a person's iris (the colored part of the eye) in order to detect patterns that allow them to determine systems in a person's body that are inflamed, overactive, or otherwise distressed.
