ChiroSH (Chiropractic Subject Headings) is a controlled vocabulary created by members of the Chiropractic Library Collaboration, an organization affiliated with the Association of Chiropractic Colleges. ChiroSH is used by the Index to Chiropractic Literature’s indexers, and by catalogers in health sciences libraries. This online version (under development) is an innovation we hope will be widely used by students, chiropractors and researchers. The first edition of ChiroSH was released in 1984 and the seventh edition is currently in production.

In Zone Therapy, the body is divided into ten zones, five on each side of the body. Pressure applied anywhere in the zone will affect the entire zone. This was popularized in the early 1900s by William FitzGerald, M.D., and is the origin of modern hand and foot reflexology.
