Whole body reflex zones (or macro reflex zones) are proposed to describe reflex zones distributed on the entire body surface.

 

They are categorized into three main types of reflex zones: visceral, somatic, and central. They contain all acupoints of classical 14 meridians, extraordinary points, and most newly discovered points, but do not include micro reflex zones or points used by various micro acupuncture therapies, such as auricular acupuncture, hand acupuncture, foot acupuncture, facial acupuncture, nose acupuncture, eye acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, tongue acupuncture, and wrist-ankle acupuncture. These two types of reflex zones, micro and macro reflex zones complement each other from certain parts of the body to the whole body surface. Thus, do not confuse the concept of whole body reflex zones proposed in this book with the concept of micro reflex zones proposed by other texts, where those zones only lodge at certain regions of the body, such as the hands, feet, and ears.
