"Research measuring brain activity by EEG shows, from the moment the reflexologist's hands start their work, the relaxation begins. Multiple studies using a variety of measurements show that reflexology relaxes the body. The stimulation of reflexology’s pressure techniques creates change in the body’s basic level of tension as demonstrated by research using measurement of: brain waves (EEG), blood pressure, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, pulse rate, and anxiety." - Kevin Kunz
The metacarpal is one of five, long cylindrical bones in the body of the hand. The bones run from the carpal bones of the wrist to the base of each digit of the hand.
