Hello, is irodolgy permitted in judaism? what about reflexolgy and acupuncture? (or are these derived from a”z practices?)
The alternative healing methods you mentioned are permissible. They are based on a system of understanding the bodies inner workings and energies, and the connection between body and mind. Although the value in engaging in these practices is questionable, this does not make the practice forbidden. At least contemporary forms of these practices involve no religion, worship or the like and have no connection to Avoda Zara.
