In addition to clear signs of organic disorders on the chest is the protected area of our emotions. It shows the manner in which physical issues are associated with unresolved emotions. The ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture confirms this "map of emotions". The basis of this reflexology are the assignments of the segmental dermatomes, which were first described by Sir Henry Head in 1893 and since then they have experienced a continuous development.
These points of traditional Chinese medicine may well be considered as somatotopic organ-related reflexology points. The acupuncturist Bachmann indicated already in 1959 that the respective alarm point is not usually on the organ associated meridian, but always close to the locations of the concerned organ. The peculiarity of these points is that they are one of the earliest "alarm" for regulatory disorders of organs - long before we can register something by other diagnostic techniques.
