Reflexology is one of the few alternative therapies that is widely recognised by the medical profession as being a useful and practical complement to conventional treatments. Drawing on the ancient belief that the feet mirror the body, a reflexology treatment involves applying gentle pressure or manipulation to certain points on the feet, to ease or prevent problems in the corresponding part of the body.
This 256 page book serves as an ideal introduction for beginners, as it covers every aspect of reflexology - its origins, development, basic techniques, full body sequences and guide to aiding the relief of ailments both mental and physical. It is equally useful and inspiring for those already studying reflexology as it combines a wealth of information for reference.
Each technique and sequence is clearly demonstrated with step-by-step photography, and all aspects are concisely explained in the text.
