Whether reflex zones are in the micro regions or the whole body, their formation possesses both characteristics of precise localization and vague diffusion, which may be resulted from accurate reflex and vague reflex, respectively. The vague reflex is also known as diffusible reflex. Because of the diffusible reflex, be cautious when using micro or whole body reflex zones to diagnose diseases. In addition, it might be just the reason for the relative specificity in actions of acupoints.


Hinted from the notion of diffusible reflex, it is more important to learn and understand distribution rules of reflex zones rather than memorizing their precise territories. For example, a relatively trustworthy rule for auricular visceral reflex zones are that they may be distributed at the concaved areas, but their exact territory may vary. Remember, those descriptions or atlases about the distribution of auricular points are merely empirical conclusions from some practitioners, thus they often differ in different texts. Until now, no convincing scientific evidences about them have been provided.
